Donald Trump rains insults on Elizabeth Warren after DNA test

Trump Says Warren Being 'slammed' over DNA Test

Pocahontas was a historical figure from the 17th Century and using her name in an intentionally disparaging way insults native peoples and degrades their cultures.

Having provided the results to American newspaper the Boston Globe yesterday, Warren now has conclusive proof of her Native American ancerstry.

Tuesday morning, Trump responded to the results on Twitter, saying she was an "amazing con" and a "complete and total fraud". "I respect the distinction, & don't list myself as Native in the Senate", she said. Whether you love Warren or loathe her should depend on her ideas and ideals, her deeds and words - not on her genetic ancestry.

Why did Elizabeth Warren release DNA results?

According to the report, "the great majority of (Warren's) identifiable ancestry is European". But it strongly supported the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor in her pedigree from six to 10 generations ago.

"The identity of the sample donor, Elizabeth Warren, was not known to the analyst during the time the work was performed", the report said.

What counts as Native American heritage is a question with different answers among the 573 legally recognized tribes in the United States.

"Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong", said the Cherokee Nation secretary of state, Chuck Hoskin Jr.

"Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person's ancestors were indigenous to North or South America".

Bets for upcoming Southampton vs Arsenal fight
Neither Arsene Wenger nor his players could afford themselves to lose another match if they still want to be in the top four. Arsenal is still keeping the dream to be qualified in Champions League after the victory over Manchester on Sunday.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) announced Tuesday he would take a DNA test to find out if he had more Cherokee blood than Sen.

Trump's nickname for Warren is among his most frequently used monikers. "In fact, you cared so much, you once offered a million dollars to charity if Senator Warren proves she is part Native American, a fact reporters reminded you of today".

Warren was, at a few points during her academic career, described as minority faculty - at least once by her own election campaign on a forum.

After denying that he ever made the $1 million promise Monday, Trump clarified later that day that it only applied if she took the DNA test during a 2020 presidential debate and if he conducted it "personally".

"While the networks were trying to paint Warren's announcement as just a result of Trump's attacks, there was no critical examination of her previous claims and particularly her tall tale of how her parents had to elope because her father's family was opposed to him marrying a Native American", Fondacaro wrote.

On Monday, Trump denied making that claim and said he would only give her the money he promised on the campaign trail if he could administer the DNA test himself.

"I'll only do it if I can test her personally", he said.

"That will not be something I enjoy doing either", Trump said.
