Elizabeth Warren Asked About Why She Took DNA Test at Iowa Event


At an event in Iowa today, Senator Elizabeth Warren got a question about the DNA test she took.

“Why did you undergo the DNA testing and give Donald Trump more fodder to be a bully?” one person asked Warren.

“I’m glad you asked that question,” Warren said. “I am not a person of color, I am not a citizen of a tribe. Tribal citizenship is very different from ancestry. Tribes and only tribes determine tribal citizenship, and I respect that difference.”

“My decision was I’m just going to put it all out there,” she continued.

Warren said at one point she “can’t stop Donald Trump from what he’s going to do” or from “hurling racial insults.”
