Elizabeth Warren refuses DNA test to prove Native American heritage

1/27/2018- Roxbury MA- Malden High School- Senator Elizabeth Warren hosted her first town hall of the new year on Sunday afternoon

No, it is not the price that deterred the wealthy Warren from taking the test, the Senator simply wants to retain her family's folk lore.

"You know, I was watching, during the campaign, and Hillary [Clinton] was sitting right there, and Pocahontas was up, she was so angry, you know, I think she's losing the audience", Trump said, referring to Warren's support in 2016 of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonWoman behind pro-Trump Facebook page denies being influenced by Russians Trump: CNN, MSNBC "got scammed" into covering Russian-organized rally Pennsylvania Democrats set to win big with new district map MORE. "My daddy first saw my mother when they were both teenagers".

Warren didn't answer on that front. Should the test come up negative, it would be an opportunity for the senator to perform an act rarely seen among politicians: "an admission of her error and a full-throated apology to Native American tribes and anyone else offended by her spurious claim", the editorial reads.

A directory of law professors listed Warren as a minority from 1986 to 1995, just before she joined Harvard Law School.

"Look, I do know".

Trump's tariffs, which he announced last Thursday, were met with swift opposition from numerous president's fellow Republicans who say they will harm the economy.

As Trump continues to use a "racial slur" against her, she'll continue to use the opportunity to urge the federal government to put more resources to help tribes, including to combat sexual violence.

For her critics, Warren's speech did little to quell suspicions she used claims of Native American heritage to give herself a leg up early in her academic career. "Never used it for anything".

"That's the story that my brothers and I all learned from our mom and our dad, from our grandparents", Warren said. She's making a cynical political play to have Native Americans back her story whether it's true or not.

The DNA test would settle the issue once and for all. Scott Brown continuously questioned her claims of Native American heritage. "It's a part of who I am, and no one's ever going to take that away", Warren said.
