Acosta also asked if she gets upset when President Donald Trump refers to her as “Pocahontas.”
“It’s about my family’s story. Because my family’s story is deeply a part of me and a part of my brothers,” Warren said. “It’s what we learned from our parents. It’s what we learned from our grandparents. It’s what we learned from our aunts and uncles.
“I went to speak to Native American tribal leaders and I made a promise to them that every time President Trump wants to try to throw out some kind of racial slur, he wants to attack me, I’m going to use it as a chance to lift up their stories,” she added.
While speaking at a campaign rally in western Pennsylvania Saturday night, President Trump brought back his derisive nickname for Warren. He predicted that the media would be bored covering her 2020 election campaign.
