Today Senator Warren released the results of a DNA test that show a strong support for her claim to Native American ancestry. The DNA test was done as a part of her campaign showcasing her heritage while offering evidence that she doesn’t benefit professionally from this heritage, and it was also a stab at Trump who has claimed repeatedly that she played it up or invented her false heritage for political and professional gain. This past July, he stated that he would donate $1 million to Warren’s charity of choice if she took a DNA test and it showed she was “Indian.”
After her test results were released, Warren tweeted: “NIWRC is a nonprofit working to protect Native women from violence. More than half of all Native women have experienced sexual violence, and the majority of violent crimes against Native Americans are perpetrated by non-Natives. Send them your $1M check, @realDonaldTrump.” When asked this morning about whether he would be donating the $1 million as promised, Trump said, “I didn’t say that, you better read that again.”
