Elizabeth Warren releases DNA analysis on Native American heritage

  • Warren DNA analysis points to Native American heritage

And in the middle of the debate, when she proclaims that she is of Indian heritage because her mother said she has high cheekbones - that is her only evidence, her mother said we have high cheekbones. "What do the facts say?" Warren is shown nodding.

Asked about his million-dollar rally quote, Trump told reporters today, "I didn't say that".

Freeman comments: "At least according to the report from Professor Bustamante, it's possible that Sen".

Not everyone, however, was satisfied by Warren's ancestry test, which found "the great majority" of Warren's heritage comes from Europe.

The DNA test suggests Ms Warren has a Native American ancestor dating back six to 10 generations.

In a tweet directed at Trump, Warren said: "Remember saying on (July 5) that you'd give $1M to a charity of my choice if my DNA showed Native American ancestry?".

Warren used the Globe report to directly respond to Trump's charity challenge.

Warren reminded the president on Monday of his promise.

"He's talking about stuff he doesn't have any idea about", Mark Herring, Warren's nephew, says in the video. The move to release the results of a DNA test Monday seemed like another step in that process. "What kid would? But I knew my father's family didn't like that she was part Cherokee and part DE, so my parents had to elope", she said, reiterating that she hadn't gotten any benefits because of her heritage. And you make me look very bad, ' Trump said. Warren (D-Mass.) that showed she is between 1/32 and 1/1024 Native American. At the White House last November, he interrupted his speech honoring Native American war heroes standing around him to invoke the nickname. But in Warren's telling, this distant genetic inheritance had profound implications for her immediate family.


Warren's purported Native American heritage was touted by Harvard Law School when she was a professor there.

"Her heritage had no bearing on her hiring", Jay Westbrook of the UT Austin School of Law says in the video.

During a rally this past July, Trump revived his personal taunts of the MA senator's heritage claims, pledging - "I promise you I'll do this" - that he would challenge Warren - who appears to be preparing for a 2020 presidential bid - to take a DNA test to back up her claims if they faced each other in a debate. She went on to request that the president send a check to National Indigenous Women's Resource Center.

The first-term Democratic senator's critics have accused Warren of advancing her career by claiming minority status as a descendant of Cherokee and DE tribes.

"I didn't say that". "Nah, you'd better read it again".

Reacting to President Trump's similar dismissal of Warren over her DNA test and ensuing political ad, Hurt said the president is "making fun of the whole issue of identity politics" when he riffs on her at rallies.

During a recent town hall-style meeting in Holyoke, Massachusetts, Warren said she planned to "take a hard look at running for president", after next month's election. Warren should do the same now that it is abundantly clear she is running for President. "Warren has far less than one percent Native American ancestry, and that her genetic makeup is perhaps similar to that of the average white person in the U.S".

Warren wonders in the video about the motives of those, like Trump, who "have questioned my heritage and my family history".

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter mocked Warren's results and compared them to her chances of being president. "Maybe they do it to insult me ..."
