Elizabeth Warren fights back calls to take DNA test over Native American heritage claims

Trump hits possible Warren presidency: 'Pocahontas' is losing an audience

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", Warren said she is running for Senate, not for president, and plans on "staying focused" on that.

Warren listed 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".

"Never got any benefit from it anywhere", Warren said of her ancestry on NBC's "Meet the Press".

"My mother and daddy were born and raised in Oklahoma", Warren said.

She also says in the interview that her mother was "part Native American". "I am running for the United States Senate".

"All the senator needs to do is spit into a tube, wait a few weeks and get her answer", the paper said.

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". And he was head over heels in love with her and wanted to marry her. "That is just fundamentally wrong".

"I am not running for president in 2020", is what she said. "More than half of all native women have been the victims of sexual violence", she said.
