“Could there be other documents out there where you self-identify as an ‘American Indian?’” asked one reporter.
“All I know, is during this time period this is consistent with what I did because it was based on my understanding from my family stories. But family stories are not the same as Tribal Citizenship,” said Warren.
SEN. WARREN: DNA Test Meant to Rebuild ‘TRUST IN GOVERNMENT’
Democratic Senator and potential 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren doubled-down on her widely-panned DNA publicity stunt over the weekend; saying the test was meant to rebuild “trust” in the American government.
Warren was pressed on her DNA results during a debate with GOP candidate Geoff Diehl; claiming she publicly released the report to “rebuild confidence through transparency.”
“So anybody can take a look. … I believe one way that we try to rebuild confidence is through transparency,” she added.

Diehl fired-back at Warren moments later, adding the issue “is not about Sen. Warren’s ancestry, it’s about integrity in my mind, and I don’t care whether you think you benefited or not from that claim, it’s the fact that you tried to benefit from that claim that I think bothers a lot of people and it’s something you haven’t been able to put to rest since the 2012 campaign.”
TRUMP TO WARREN: Apologize for ‘Perpetrating Fraud’ Against the American Public
President Trump unloaded on firebrand Senator and potential 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren Tuesday morning; blasting the liberal legislator after a DNA test showed she may be 1/1024 Native American.
The Commander-in-Chief slammed the left-wing lawmaker on social media just hours after she revealed her DNA results to the Boston Globe, saying she “should apologize for perpetrating this fraud against the American Public.”
“Pocahontas (the bad version), sometimes referred to as Elizabeth Warren, is getting slammed. She took a bogus DNA test and it showed that she may be 1/1024, far less than the average American. Now Cherokee Nation denies her, “DNA test is useless.” Even they don’t want her. Phony!” tweeted Trump.
Now that her claims of being of Indian heritage have turned out to be a scam and a lie, Elizabeth Warren should apologize for perpetrating this fraud against the American Public. Harvard called her “a person of color” (amazing con), and would not have taken her otherwise!

Sen. Warren fired-back against initial complaints surrounding her highly-anticipated DNA results Tuesday morning; telling Trump “You’ve lost a step, and in 21 days, you’re going to lose Congress.”
