Trump Rips Warren over DNA Test

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump ripped Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday over the results of her DNA test that aimed to prove her alleged Native American heritage.

“Pocahontas (the bad version), sometimes referred to as Elizabeth Warren, is getting slammed,” Trump said in a Twitter post. “She took a bogus DNA test and it showed that she may be 1/1,024th, far less than the average American.”

“Now Cherokee Nation denies her, ‘DNA test is useless’,” the post continues. “Even they don’t want her. Phony!”

The Boston Globe on Monday published the test results, saying that there is “strong evidence’’ that the senator had a Native American in her family tree “dating back 6 to 10 generations.”

However, the outlet later said there had been a “math” error when stating Warren’s ancestry, adding that the Massachusetts Democrat’s heritage is closer to between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American.

Trump urged Warren to “apologize” for perpetrating a “fraud against the American Public,” reminding his audience that Harvard University even called her “a person of color.”

The Cherokee Nation on Monday bashed Warren for “making a mockery out of DNA tests” while “dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven.”

Trump praised the Cherokee Nation for showing that Warren is a “complete and total fraud.”
