White Home: Native Americans would be ‘very offended’ about Redskins name change

WASHINGTON — The White Home on Monday doubled down on criticism of the Washington Redskins for retiring their name and brand, citing a information report that discovered the vast majority of Native Americans weren’t offended by it.

At a briefing, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany mentioned President Trump final week ripped the anticipated determination by the NFL workforce to change their name after backlash from company sponsors and many years of controversy as a result of Native Americans would be made “very offended” by the choice.

“His tweet made it clear that these groups named their groups out of power, not weak point, and he talked about the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Indians altering their names,” McEnany informed reporters.

“He says that he believes the Native American group would be very offended at this and he does have polling to again him up,” she continued.

In a tweet final Monday, the president advised the anticipated name change was a results of the NFL workforce making an attempt to be “politically appropriate” and took a swipe at Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who infamously claimed she was half Native American.

“Indians, like Elizabeth Warren, should be very offended proper now!” he wrote.

McEnany cited a Washington Submit ballot from 2016 that discovered 9 in 10 Native Americans weren’t offended by the NFL workforce’s controversial name.

“The Washington Submit notes that many of those Native Americans voiced admiration for the workforce name like Barbara Bruce who mentioned, ‘I’m pleased with being Native American and of the Redskins. I’m not ashamed of that in any respect. I like that name.’”

“Gabriel Nez, one other 29-year-old from the Navajo group: ‘I actually don’t thoughts. I prefer it.’ There are a number of different feedback like this within the Washington Submit,” McEnany continued.

The Redskins on Monday morning introduced they have been formally retiring their name and brand and are engaged on renaming the workforce.
