President Donald Trump slammed Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Monday after learning that her DNA test results showed that she may only be 1/1,024 Native American.
Trump, who has effectively branded Warren as “Pocahontas,” made the comments during a press conference while visiting a Red Cross Shelter in Georgia as he surveyed the damage caused by the recent hurricane.
“Since we already went off topic, Mr. President, Senator Warren released some of her DNA results that show a strong likelihood that she does have Native American roots—” a reporter began.
“How much, 1/1,000th?” Trump asked as multiple people in the audience began laughing.
“Do you owe her an apology?” the reporter asked.
“No, I don’t,” Trump responded. “She owes the country an apology.”
“What about the money that you told her you would—” the reporter continued.
“You mean if she gets the nomination, in a debate where I was going to have her tested?” Trump interjected. “I’ll only do it if I can test her personally.”
Pres. Trump says he doesn’t owe Sen. Warren an apology following release of DNA test showing “strong evidence” she had a Native American ancestor dating back several generations.
