Trump calls Elizabeth Warren ‘total fraud,’ offers to give DNA test himself

The high-profile disclosure was widely seen as a means of disarming one of President Trump's favorite ways to insult the MA senator, ahead of a potential run at the presidency in 2020.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren's release of a DNA test, which suggested a lineage to a distant Native American ancestor, has roiled the Indigenous community frustrated about the seizure of cultural and social ties for political manoeuvring. "You said if I show you this, that you're going to pay whatever group I want a million bucks'".

Warren hit back at Trump, calling those comments "creepy". He tweeted about it three times Tuesday morning alone.

Are you offended with [Warren] using her alleged Native American heritage to try to win elections? At one point, the school newspaper referred to Warren as "the first woman with a minority background to be tenured".

Warren's heavily promoted DNA test indicated she could be between 1/64 and 1/1,024 Native American (though the Boston Globe initially published an erroneous figure and had to correct it). Hoskin accused Warren of "undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage". Other officials at the school backed her up that her heritage wasn't part of hiring conversations.

Trump also claimed that Warren would not have been hired as a Harvard law professor if not for claiming to be a "person of color". It was a statistic the paper argued was probably reported by Warren herself to the school. "I respect the distinction, & don't list myself as Native in the Senate", she explained. If what we've just witnessed was the beginning of her presidential campaign she should come clean.

Fondacaro wrote that ABC treated the DNA test as a "boon" for Warren's likely 2020 campaign, while CBS's "Evening News" barely covered the story.

She will be a candidate for MA when the November 6 elections roll around this year.

Se le considera el primer Papa viajero , siendo el primero en ir a Tierra Santa e iniciar el diálogo con otras religiones. Añadió que Romero dio su vida y su seguridad física "para estar cerca de los pobres y su pueblo".

Brown's campaign pounced on this, but they arguably overplayed their hand.

Later Monday, Trump said he did not owe Warren the money, saying that was contingent on her winning the nomination.

That erosion, TallBear said Monday on Twitter, has been long-standing.

Controversy over released documents stretch back to Barack Obama's Presidency, when the "birther" movement spurred by Donald Trump led the former President to release his birth certificate.

Hoskin also criticized the president's use of the name "Pocahontas" as an intended insult.

"I'll only do it if I can test her personally".

The co-hosts of "The View" clashed over the DNA test results for Sen.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), fresh off his re-branding during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, told "Fox & Friends" Tuesday morning that he's thinking of taking one of those mail-in DNA tests, and he's nearly certain it will prove he's more Native American than Sen.
