“I do regret calling her Pocahontas, because I think it’s a tremendous insult to Pocahontas,” he said on Fox News’s “The O’Reilly Factor” Monday night. “So, to Pocahontas, I would like to apologize to you.”
Anchor Bill O’Reilly also asked Trump, the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee, whether he would consider Warren for “ambassador to Tonga.”
“No, she wouldn’t be my first choice,” Trump responded. “You know, she’s been a very, very poor senator. You know the funny thing about Elizabeth Warren, she’s been a lousy senator. She’s done a terrible job.”
Trump has repeatedly dubbed Warren “Pocahontas,” reviving past controversy over the senator’s claims of Native American heritage.
Warren has frequently sparred with Trump in recent weeks, attacking the billionaire’s background and disparaging remarks he has made about women.
