Elizabeth Warren releases DNA test with 'strong evidence' of Native American ancestor

Elizabeth Warren releases DNA test with 'strong evidence' of Native American ancestor

In a tweet this morning, US Senator Elizabeth Warren challenged President Trump to honor his pledge to give $1M to a charity of her choice.

If it was 10 generations ago, she'd be 1/512 Native American, the paper added.

The political rally was held in Montana in early July and the Commander in Chief foretold a potential political debate between him and future presidential candidate Warren, then mocked the #MeToo movement by suggesting he'd carefully toss a $2 DNA test kit to the senator if she were to agree to take it.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren released a report Monday from a noted Stanford University geneticist who found a small amount of DNA in her genome that points to an American Indian ancestor. "I have a feeling she will say no, but we will hold it for the debates".

The release of this new DNA study, the Globe notes, is part of Warren's "elaborate rollout Monday of the results as she aimed for widespread attention" for her supposed debunking of all those problematic "questions about her ancestry".

In a video posted on her website that begins with Trump calling her "Pocahontas", Warren is speaking to Bustamante. "Native Americans have faced discrimination, neglect and violence for generations", she says in the video.

Ariana Grande: 'I've been through hell and back'
In other news, Ariana is teasing the release of new music and we might be getting a new album from her before the end of the year. Ariana Grande has admitted she has been through "hell and back" in the wake of the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller .

"Her heritage had no bearing on her hiring".

"I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian", Trump said in July. That would seem to fit the story that Warren's parents told their children about their maternal great-great-great-grandmother.

Native American leaders have called Trump's mockery insensitive and an example of prejudice. "I understand that tribal membership is determined by tribes - and only tribes", she said. "She'll make our country in Venezuela", Trump said.

"I get it: @realDonaldTrump is afraid of facts". "A deep, independent investigation shows my background played no role in any job I got".

Bustamante, according to the Globe, authored the six-page report and conducted the analysis after Warren released a sample of her DNA to a private lab in Georgia over the summer.

Warren replied that it's time "for women to go to Washington to fix our broken government, and that includes a woman at the top". At the same time, the report could embolden critics by showing only trace amounts of that heritage - which Republicans have charged she used to advance her career at Harvard.
