Elizabeth Warren fights back calls to take DNA test over Native American heritage claims
Sen. Elizabeth Warren is refusing to take a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage following President Trump name calling her "Pocahontas". When NBC's Chuck Todd pressed her on that fact during Sunday's "Meet the Press", Warrensaid she is running for Senate, not for president, and plans on "staying focused" on that.
Warrenlisted herself as Native American in order to receive preferential hiring treatment when she applied to become a professor at Harvard Law School. "It's a part of me, and nobody's going to take that part of me away".
'So, let me tell you the story of my family, ' she began.
Host John Roberts asked Warren about the much-discussed projections that the Massachusetts Democrat would seek to unseat President Donald Trump.
While noting how the legislation could lead to increased discriminatory lending practices and loosens capital controls in a way that puts the wider economy at risk, Warren said, "I think that we do better as a country and we do better as a Congress when we're there to fight for working people and not for Wall Street banks".

Trump referred to Warren as "Pocahontas" at the rally, a derogatory reference to her controversial claims of Cherokee heritage.
Warren's response came after Todd read a portion of the editorial, posted on the television screen, that appeared in The Eagle's Tuesday edition. If it did not, she could offer an apology to Native American tribes and anyone else offended by her claim. "I did not mention her Native American connection because I did not know about it".
