Elizabeth Warren angers prominent Native Americans with politically fraught DNA test

President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning called Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., a "complete and total Fraud", opening a second day of sparring between the current White House occupant and a likely 2020 challenger over her Native American heritage.

"It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonouring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven", Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said in a statement.

The Massachusetts Democrat and possible 2020 presidential candidate on Monday released DNA test results that genealogists say show she could be anywhere from 1/64th to 1/1024th Native American. "But DNA & family history has nothing to do with tribal affiliation or citizenship, which is determined only - only - by Tribal Nations".

Goldberg then explained that Warren was looking to settle debate over her heritage, the co-host contended that it didn't matter whether only a small fraction of her background was Native American.

Still, Republicans generally, and Trump specifically, have seized on Warren's claims of indigenous ancestry to paint her as a fraud and opportunist. There is no evidence that Harvard ever publicly described her in that manner.

She took the DNA test President Donald Trump urged, and he mocked her for it. Fried said Monday that when he presented her case to the faculty "I did not mention her Native American connection because I did not know about it". But Warren's unpopularity spiked, with three times as many voters saying they disliked her.

The Media Research Center examined the Monday evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS to determine whether or not Warren was painted as being vindicated regarding her often-criticized claim that she is part Native American.

Warren's disclosure was met with a scoff by Trump, who succinctly said "who cares?" when asked about the results by reporters. While the findings align with the Oklahoma native's family lore that that her great-great-great-grandmother was at least partially Native American, a 2014 study found that the average European American (as opposed to simply the average American, as Trump stated) was 0.18 percent Native American.

Graham said he'd take a test of his own, prompting him to make the comments on Iranians. He later upped the ante by saying "I'll only do it if I can test her personally". This is a woman who built her political narrative claiming other people are rigging the system. "It may soothe his ego - but it won't work". "You said if I show you this, that you're going to pay whatever group I want a million bucks'".

Warren was referring to the November 6 election, when Democrats hope to regain control of the House, which would put them in position to examine and possibly publicly release Trump's income tax returns.
