Warren warned Friday, June 16, that President Donald Trump and his Republican allies are preparing to deliver Âa knockout blowÂ to the nation's middle-class.
Faith Spotted Eagle, a prominent Native American activist, said that the use of the word in that setting amounted to "emotional assault" that "carries as much weight as a physical assault", according to a reporter for the Toronto Star.

Warren responded that it was "deeply unfortunate that the President of the United States can not even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without throwing out a racial slur".
Standing in front of a portrait of President Andrew Jackson, who famously oversaw the forced relocation of the Cherokee Nation that resulted in thousands of deaths, Trump told the group, "I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people".
"I don't believe it is appropriate to use a racial slur in any context".
Keel also called on the president to refrain from invoking Pocahontas in a way that "denigrates the legacy" of the 17th century Pamunkey woman, born Matoaka, who is credited with helping foster relations between Virginia tribes and early British colonizers.
