Does presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump regret calling Sen. Elizabeth Warren Pocahontas?

He does.

During an interview with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, Trump addressed the nickname he used for the Massachusetts senator.

“I do regret calling her Pocahontas because I think it’s a tremendous insult to Pocahontas — so to Pocahontas I would like to apologize to you,” Trump said.

Warren claimed Native American heritage while she was a professor in Harvard — even though there is no evidence that she has any connections in her ancestry.

Trump referred to Warren as Pocahontas during a press conference in North Dakota, prompting reporters to inform him that it was “very offensive.”
