Elizabeth Warren's DNA shows she has distant American Indian ancestor

The results were first given to The Boston Globe on Sunday, before being publicly released Monday morning. But 'the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor, ' he wrote.

The analysis of Warren's DNA was done by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor and expert in the field who won a 2010 MacArthur fellowship, also known as a genius grant, for his work on tracking population migration via DNA analysis.

President Donald Trump has alleged that Warren, seen as a potential presidential competitor in 2020, used false claims about her heritage to advance her career as a lawyer.

That's what some were wondering on Twitter after the Democratic Senator from MA released the findings of a DNA test that she says is "strong evidence" of Native American heritage going as far back as 10 generations, according to The Boston Globe.

President Trump has also repeatedly mocked her as "Pocahontas".

On Monday - in a move that makes her presidential ambitions unmistakable - Warren released a test that appears to do just that. Which is to say: Warren identified as Native American because that was how many people in the (profoundly racist) society of early 20th century Oklahoma identified her mother.

Moments later, Trump denied making such an offer: "I didn't say that", Trump told reporters at the White House.

"I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian", he said.

Things You Should Know Before Buying Black Ops 4
One of the drastic changes coming to Black Ops 4 is the lack of a campaign. While another wrote: "Honestly this is the best BR that exist right now".

Warren told the National Congress of American Indians last February that her family's story is lore, not recorded on any tribal rolls. This is in part because Native American leaders have asked tribal members not to participate in genetic databases.

Trump added that Warren would turn the United States into Venezuela. Warren tweeted. "I remember - and here's the verdict".

"I get it: @realDonaldTrump is afraid of facts".

Bustamante, according to the Globe, authored the six-page report and conducted the analysis after Warren released a sample of her DNA to a private lab in Georgia over the summer.

According to the paper, the disclosure is another strong sign that she is seriously considering running for president.

Warren replied that it's time "for women to go to Washington to fix our broken government, and that includes a woman at the top".

After that Montana debate, Warren brushed off Trump's taunts as she had multiple times before, whenever he deployed his derisive "Pocahontas" nickname for her.
