Warren Says She's Not Running in 2020

Trump hits possible Warren presidency: 'Pocahontas' is losing an audience

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is rejecting a MA newspaper's suggestion that she take a DNA test to prove her Native-American heritage. President Donald Trump has turned her claim into a racially tinged attack line, frequently referring to her as "Pocahontas" since May 2016, including at a rally in Saturday night western Pennsylvania. Warren and the National Congress of American Indians consider it a racial slur when used as shorthand for Native Americans. "I know who I am", Warren said Sunday on NBC News' "Meet the Press", in comments carried by the Hill.

Some on the left and right are calling on Senator Elizabeth Warren to take a DNA test to straighten out questions about Native American heritage; radio host Howie Carr weighs in. "It's a part of me, and nobody is going to take that part of me away - not ever", Warren said.

Last year, Warren famously spawned the #ShePersisted hashtag on social media after she was silenced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on the floor of the Senate during the confirmation battle over Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "Never got any benefit from it anywhere", Warren said.

The senator said she believes the issue was "fully litigated" during the 2012 campaign when her opponent then-Sen.

"My mother and daddy were born and raised in Oklahoma".

Warren responded with the story she said she had been told by family members about her parents - that her father's family didn't want him to marry her mother because she was part Native American.

She says her focus is winning senate re-election this year and representing the people of MA.

However, Warren's reflection of her heritage remains based on what she was told by her parents.

"All the senator needs to do is spit into a tube, wait a few weeks and get her answer", the paper said.
Todd again asked Warren. "I did not mention her Native American connection because I did not know about it". "I understand that tribal membership is determined by tribes - and only by tribes", Warren said, adding that she never used her heritage to advance her career. Do you think that he is being disrespectful to Native Americans when he does that? She wanted to be elected to another term as Senator and both her Republican opponent and the NY media were asking if she would finish her term. "We need to put some focus on this and we need to make some changes on this".
