RPT noted yesterday, as the Pocahontas story gained momentum…
Was this a Trump misstep, or an intentional move to bring potential 2020 presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren, into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.
Everyone is now talking about POTUS Trump’s “Pocahontas” comment, and unfortunately for Warren, everyone is examining her “cultural appropriation”, lying about her Native American heritage to advance her career all the way to the US Senate.
According to The Gateway Pundit, Debbie “White Dove” Porreco, a descendant of Pocahontas is a YUGE Trump-supporter. In a September interview with Sky News, Porreco revealed she is in no way offended when President Trump calls Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) “Pocahontas.”
Porreco believes President Trump will be America’s hero.

Daily Caller reports…
In a September interview with Sky News, Debbie “White Dove” Porreco said that Trump once asked her if it offended her that he used the name “Pocahontas” to refer to the Democratic senator.
“I know that he uses ‘Pocahontas’ sometimes with Elizabeth Warren,” Porreco explained. “He said, ‘well does that offend you when I use that?’ And I told him no, it doesn’t offend me.”
“If Pocahontas were alive today, she would be very proud of President Trump,” Porreco said. “Just like Pocahontas was a heroine, Donald Trump is going to be our hero.”
Porreco told Sky News…
“Sometimes when I’m dining at Mar-a-Lago, I think to myself, ‘You’ve come a long way from that Indian reservation you started in. Pocahontas had dreams and went to England. My dreams brought me to Palm Beach.”
