Conservative MP Jason Kenney has been in the news a lot this week, but it's a tweet he posted on National Aboriginal Day that is drawing the attention of the Indigenous community.

It didn't take long for Kenney to be called out for the poorly worded tweet.

"Calling Indigenous [Peoples] settlers? … Canada is how old?" questioned Christi Belcourt.

Kenney responded to a few Tweets, but failed to understand why people were frustrated by what he originally wrote. 

CBC reached out to Kenney for a response, but have yet to hear from him.
