Sen. Elizabeth Warren: "I'm not running for president in 2020"

Elizabeth Warren fights back calls to take DNA test over Native American heritage claims

A MA newspaper has challenged Warren to clear up questions about her claims to Native American heritage by taking a DNA test.

The Berkshire Eagle, a liberal newspaper that endorsed Warren in 2012, is calling on her to "screw up her courage and take the spit test".

Warren sought to move past questions about her background last month in an address to the National Congress of American Indians.

But Warren's story has come under scrutiny for relying on family lore rather than official tribal documentation of Native American heritage. "I am running for the United States Senate, 2018, Massachusetts, woo hoo".

But Rebecca Nagle, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation living in Oklahoma, has said Warren needs to apologize for her "false claims", saying there's no evidence the former Harvard Law School faculty member has Native American heritage.

Figures on sexual assault against Native American women vary but the issue is agreed to be serious. President Donald Trump has turned it into a racially tinged attack line, frequently referring to her as "Pocahontas" since May 2016, including at a Saturday night rally in western Pennsylvania. Warren reiterated her initial claim, adding that she has "no intention" of running for president.

"She was a lovely girl who played the piano. I'm not running for president".

Sri Lanka's Muslim minority held their Friday prayers under military protection across the island amid fears of fresh attacks. The police had claimed that anti-Muslim rioters were using social media to spread anti-Muslim hatred.

Warren could deliver the rebuke of all rebukes to Trump by posting her DNA test results to back up her claims. "Never got any benefit from it anywhere", Warren said.

During her interview, Warren went into more detail about her ancestry.

Warren's public embrace of her family story could carry political risks - but not necessarily from Trump.

Warren said she also is concerned Trump's lack of staffing and expertise at the State Department could undercut his planned meeting with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un.

The speech was a clear attempt to put the controversy around her claims of heritage to rest and potentially another sign of 2020 presidential ambitions. And he was head over heels in love with her and wanted to marry her. "I never used it to advance my career".

"If I don't win the election, [news] ratings are going to go so far down, they'll be out of business, every one of them". The issue not only hangs over Warren's Senate reelection campaign, but is all but certain to be a focus should the two face off in the presidential election campaign.
