Trump's reference to "1/1024" referred to the scenario that her native ancestor is 10 generations back.
That's the inescapable conclusion from Sen.
Warren released the findings of the test in a video in which she concedes that she is not enrolled in any tribe, "but my family history is my family history".
Graham also says he's heard his family has Cherokee ancestors - the same heritage Warren claims. He tweeted about it three times Tuesday morning alone. This has been a controversial topic for years, with President Trump repeatedly questioning her heritage and calling her "Pocahontas".
Hoskin, in his statement, did not refer to Warren as a "fraud".
Warren's campaign staff didn't have documentation on hand. That makes her, as Barack Obama once said in a different context, a "typical white person". "She was not looking to prove that she wanted to be part of the tribe". There is no evidence that Harvard ever publicly described her in that manner.
Warren had actually been identifying as a minority for almost a decade in an official national law school directory, the Association of American Law Schools desk book.
"H$3 er claim to Native American ethnicity was never considered by the Harvard Law faculty, which voted resoundingly to hire her, or by those who hired her to four prior positions at other law schools". On Monday, Trump said he would pay up, but only if he "can test her personally". "I think I can beat her". So is claiming to be a legitimate candidate for Senate when one is not. Warren was trying to unseat Sen.
Should she keep to this aspiration, she would run in the American primaries for the Democrats. Brown's campaign demanded that Warren apologize for letting Harvard hold her up as a minority decades ago. And this surely does not help her future candidacy. When pressed on the once-promised $1 million payment, Trump responded: "I didn't say that". Even they don't want her. Phony!
Why this is a big deal now: Because Trump hasn't let it go.
The tweets by the President ended a fairly calm period for Mr. Trump, who had been shying away from his favorite social media platform, and doing more interviews and campaign rallies.
Native Americans also have objected to Trump's "Pocahontas" nickname for Warren.
"I'll only do it if I can test her personally", he said. But it's possible that her move only stirred up the controversy.
"Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong", he said Monday. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) made the results of a DNA test she took public on Monday. The unanswered question is how this will play out for Warren now that she, too, has elevated it.
Trump certainly sees political benefit in making this a story.
