CNN reports that President Donald Trump on Thursday mocked and repeatedly attacked Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren over her ‘alleged’ Native American heritage.
[Trump] has long targeted [Warren] for claiming that she is part Native American and derisively nicknamed “Pocahontas,” after the 17th century historical figure. On Thursday, Trump mocked people who called on him to apologize for the remark and sarcastically apologized to the historic figure.
He went on to suggest that, should Warren win the Democratic nomination in 2020 and they were to debate, he would toss an ancestry test to her and dare her to take it… adding that he would offer $1 million to charity if she took the test and it “shows you are an Indian.”
“I have a feeling she will say no,” he added.
Hey, Senator. Take the @realDonaldTrump "DNA Test Challenge". You could not only shoot an arrow into @POTUS conspiracy theories, but drum up support for your own 2020 run. The wampum ($1,000,000 bucks) could be used to help return all the stolen papooses to their memaws.
