"Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago", he added.

Putting a hand on the shoulder of one of the two veterans, he said: "But you know what, I like you because you are special".

Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye described the incident as part of an "ongoing feud" between Trump and Elizabeth Warren, over her claims to have Native American heritage during her Senate campaign.

Yesterday, President Donald Trump created a firestorm of controversy when he tossed out his favorite insult for Sen. After telling CNN's New Day that Trump's use of "Pocahontas" was obviously a "racial slur", Begaye appeared on MSNBC's Velshi and Ruhle, and once again asserted that Trump had used prejudicial language. "Look, I can explain it to them, but it's real time-consuming, and I have a lot of other stuff to do", she said. Begaye discussed some of the history of Jackson before stating that "we survived him" and Native Americans will "survive every president from here on into the future".

"It's incredibly disgusting he would make a comment that reduces an entire demographic of Native American women to the name Pocahontas, in front of native men he was supposed to be honouring". "I like you - you are special people".

Dine Code Talkers secretary Debra Klecan posted on Facebook that the White House ceremony was the first time she had ever heard disparaging comments made against the Code Talkers.

"I think what most people find offensive is Sen".

Warren responded to Trump on MSNBC after the event, saying that it was "deeply unfortunate that the president of the United States can not even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without having to throw out a racial slur".

"I don't think that it is [a racial slur] and I don't think that was the President's intent", Sanders said. "Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career", Sanders told reporters.

Warren said she believed her family had Cherokee ancestors, though critics have argued that she sought to gain an unfair advantage by claiming Native American roots.
