Trump Bashes ‘Complete and Total Fraud’ Elizabeth Warren After Cherokee Nation Rejects DNA Results

It was inevitable. President Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to rip Senator Elizabeth Warren over her claims to Native American heritage.

In a move that generated speculation yesterday about a presidential run, Warren released the results of a DNA test she took in order to prove her claims of Native American ancestry. Shortly afterwards, Cherokee Nation rejected her test and accused her of “undermining tribal interests.” Now, Trump’s calling her a “phony” and bringing back his “Pocahontas” slur.

While the test confirmed Warren’s distant Native American heritage, the ancestry percentage in her test came out to about 1/1,024, which has reignited the controversy of her claims. These Trump tweets come after he said yesterday that he would only accept proof of Warren’s heritage “if I can test her personally.”
