Trump Says Warren Being 'slammed' over DNA Test

"During her academic career as a law professor", recounted The Boston Globe in its story on Warren's DNA test, "she had her ethnicity changed from white to Native American at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where she taught from 1987 to 1995, and at Harvard University Law School, where she was a tenured faculty member starting in 1995".

Hoskin also criticized the president's use of the name "Pocahontas" as an intended insult.

"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.

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.

Warren first faced scrutiny for her purported Native American heritage during her 2012 Senate race.

The MRC noted that NBC's "Nightly News" was "eager to prove that it was somehow a bad day to be President Trump", while focusing on Warren's claim that there is "strong evidence" of her Native American ancestry.

"I won't sit quietly for @realDonaldTrump's racism, so I took a test", Warren wrote on Twitter. But Warren's unpopularity spiked, with three times as many voters saying they disliked her.

The Massachusetts Democrat and possible 2020 presidential candidate on Monday released DNA test results that genealogists say show she could be anywhere from 1/64th to 1/1024th Native American. "Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage".

Yesterday Google unveiled its newest roster of devices, including an updated Pixel phone, a high-end tablet and an IoT hub. When it comes to performance and speed, the Pixel 3 XL and regular 3 are certain to be some of the best in the business.

Still, Republicans generally, and Trump specifically, have seized on Warren's claims of indigenous ancestry to paint her as a fraud and opportunist.

The Media Research Center examined the Monday evening newscasts on ABC, NBC and CBS to determine whether or not Warren was painted as being vindicated regarding her often-criticized claim that she is part Native American.

Hoskin said the tests can not even reliably determine lineage among North or South American tribal groups.

Warren acknowledged that distinction, and said she does not have any tribal affiliation and doesn't list herself as "Native in the Senate".

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

On Monday Trump claimed that he "didn't say" that he would pay $1 million to Democratic Sen. She also said he makes "creepy physical threats" about women who scare him, including her. "I'm going to take this test", Graham said on Fox & Friends.

"Who cares? You care! It may soothe his ego - but it won't work", Warren tweeted. He later upped the ante by saying "I'll only do it if I can test her personally".

But Warren now has documentation to back up her family lore - an analysis of her genetic data performed by Carlos Bustamante, a professor of genetics at Stanford and adviser to Ancestry and 23 and Me.
