Does Senator Hoeven think President Trump's "Pocahontas" comment was a racial slur?

On Monday, November 28th, President Trump had a ceremony to honor Navajo code talkers who served in World War II. During his speech with the three Navajo code talkers beside him, President Trump referenced Senator Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas."

During our interview with Senator John Hoeven, we asked him about the president's comment. Senator Hoeven said that he does not think it was a racial slur. He also said he does not agree with Senator Warren lying about her Native American Heritage.
