Trump slams Senator’s claim to Native American heritage

Warren, a day after she issued the results of a DNA test, which she says confirms that she has Native American blood lines in her distant family tree.

Warren's release of the DNA report on Monday was accompanied by a almost six-minute, campaign-style video that recounted her background and takes direct aim at Trump, with Warren saying his mocking of Native Americans is "not what America stands for".

"A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship", Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr.

"It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven".

That would put the American Indian share of her DNA within a range of 1.5 percent and 0.09 percent - just like millions of other white Americans.

Shanghai Masters: Federer Beaten, Djokovic Into Final
Anderson had a chance to take an early lead against Djokovic but he overhit a forehand on set point in the 12th game of the match. Coric didn't offer Federer a break point opportunity, while managing to break Federer's serve in the opening game of both sets.

Yesterday Warren released an entire campaign in an attempt to refute claims she faked her heritage to get ahead in her career.

"Argue the substance all you want, but why 22 days before a crucial election where we MUST win house and senate to save America, why did @SenWarren have to do her announcement now?"

Following Warren's release of her report, the Cherokee Nation condemned its political intentions, and, unsurprisingly, Trump wasted no time in criticizing her too.

Trump's nickname for Warren is among his most frequently used monikers.

Harvard did not call Warren "a person of color" and hire her to to teach law because of her Native ancestry. This makes a lie of her various claims that her mother or grandmother are Cherokee Indians. He also suggested that Warren's DNA test belittled DNA tests in general.

Donald Trump welcomes Kanye West to the Oval Office
There's no word on if Kid Rock , who was also spotted arriving at the White House on Thursday, was around during the conversation. West spoke to reporters for almost 10 minutes in the Oval Office. "It's a good energy", West said.

The president's initial reaction to Warren's DNA test: "Who cares?". "I'm going to take this test", Graham said on Fox & Friends. I'm taking it, and the results are going to be revealed here.

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.

Trump said in July that if he were debating Warren, he would toss a home DNA testing kit at her and pay her $1 million to prove her heritage. I say that with respect, but you would. When asked about it Monday, Trump said he'd donate only if he "can test her personally".

Ross said Warren and Trump should each give that amount to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center for "making Indigenous ancestry into a campaign prop".

"That will not be something I enjoy doing either", he added.
