After years of President Trump derisively referring to Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas,” the Democratic senator and prospective presidential candidate on Monday took the extraordinary step of releasing a DNA analysis indicating “strong evidence” that she has “Native American ancestry.”.
In a brief conversation with reporters outside the White House, the president reacted to Warren’s DNA findings by saying: “Who cares?”.
“But I haven’t looked at the DNA test and it really doesn’t interest me.”.
It was President Trump, however, who said at a rally in Montana this summer that he would give $1 million to charity should Warren take a DNA test proving her heritage claims.
At the end of the video, Warren pivots to a defense of Native American citizens, saying, “Trump can say whatever he wants about me.
But mocking Native Americans or any group in order to try to get at me, that’s not what America stands for.”.
Asked explicitly about running at a recent town hall in Massachusetts, Warren said: “After November 6, I will take a hard look at running for president.”. »
