A US Senator seen as a top contender for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 has released a DNA test providing "strong evidence" that she has Native American ancestry after her claims had been mocked by Donald Trump, a report said Monday.

On 14 October 2018, the MA lawmaker released to the Boston Globe a report of a DNA test showing that, contrary to remarks by the president and other conservatives, Warren did indeed have "an unadmixed Native American ancestor". Elizabeth Warren for taking DNA test to review her Native American heritage, after she released the results of one on Monday morning. Trump falsely denied ever making the offer and later said he would donate the money only if he can personally administer the genetic test. After publication, the Globe had to correct its math to say that a tenth-generation relationship meant that Warren had as low as 1/1024 native blood. Her video includes testimonials from faculty at Harvard Law, the University of Houston, University of Pennsylvania Law School and UT Austin School of Law that her heritage had no basis in her hiring. "I think you better read it again".

"When I chose to run for Senate in 2012, I never thought that my family's Native American heritage would come under attack and my dead parents would be called liars", she said in a statement on Monday. There's no way, instead, that it will turn out like the last time Trump made a monetary offer to someone to prove their origination: when he goaded then-president Obama to provide his birth certificate and then continued to push the birther conspiracy for several years anyway. Warren released a video (below) in connection with her alleged vindication.

"Who cares?" Trump replied hastily.

Independent Shiva Ayyadurai. who is also challenging Warren, said in an e-mail that the DNA results prove Warren "is a BIGGER Fake Indian than we thought" because they show that she is "99.999% WHITE".

The analysis of her DNA was done by Carlos D Bustamante, a Stanford University professor who the Boston Globe reported was an expert in the field.

After a question about Saudi Arabia, he was asked about Warren running for president. She went on to request that the president send a check to National Indigenous Women's Resource Center.

With that in mind, we thought we'd make a few suggestions for Trump's donation. His spokesperson, Kellyanne Conway, however, stated, "I haven't looked at the test. Warren has far less than one percent Native American ancestry, and that her genetic makeup is perhaps similar to that of the average white person in the U.S".

"I'm not enrolled in a tribe and only tribes determine tribal citizenship".

"I hope she is running for president, because I think she would be very easy", he said.
