WASHINGTON – Already eyeing his 2020 re-election bid, President Donald Trump on Tuesday mocked potential Democratic challenger Sen. Elizabeth Warren for taking a DNA test showing she has at least some Cherokee blood.
“Pocahontas (the bad version), sometimes referred to as Elizabeth Warren, is getting slammed,” Trump tweeted. “She took a bogus DNA test and it showed that she may be 1/1024, far less than the average American. Now Cherokee Nation denies her, ‘DNA test is useless.’ Even they don’t want her. Phony!”
For her part, Warren said Trump should pay off on the $1 million he once pledged if she could prove she had Native American ancestry.
