President Trump weighed-in on outspoken Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s recently released DNA report Monday before departing for Florida; asking “who cares” about the legislator’s ancestry and saying she hopes to turn the United Sates into Venezuela.
The Commander-in-Chief was speaking with reporters at the White House when he was asked to comment on the left-wing lawmaker’s DNA results; allegedly showing she had a Native American ancestor six to ten generations ago.

“Do you have any reaction to Senator Elizabeth Warren releasing the results of her DNA test?” asked one reporter.
“Who cares?” fired-back the President. “Who cares? I hope she’s running for president because I think she’d be very easy. I do not think she’d be difficult at all.”
“She’ll destroy the country. She’ll make our country into Venezuela,” he added.
IT’S OFFICIAL: Elizabeth Warren Releases Results of Full DNA Test
Firebrand Senator and potential 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren officially released her DNA results Monday morning; effectively ending years of speculation surrounding her unsubstantiated claims of her Native American ancestry.
Warren sent the report to the Boston Globe that provides “strong evidence” she has at least one Native American ancestor in her family tree “dating back 6 to 10 generations.”
“Warren, whose claims to Native American blood have been mocked by President Trump and other Republicans, provided the test results to the Globe on Sunday in an effort to defuse questions about her ancestry that have persisted for years. She planned an elaborate rollout Monday of the results as she aimed for widespread attention,” writes the Globe.
The test -conducted by Carlos Bustamante of Stanford University- concludes that the “vast majority” of the Senator’s DNA comes from European descent but adds “the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor.”

WARREN EXPLODES: Sen. Warren Says Trump Ripping Babies ‘From their Mamas’
Firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren deflected President Trump’s DNA challenge Thursday, slamming the Commander-in-Chief for “destroying lives” and ripping babies “from their mamas.”
The liberal legislator attacked the President on social media hours after Trump jokingly offered the lawmaker $1 million to take a DNA test to prove her Native American ancestry; a challenge she immediately denied.
“Hey, @realDonaldTrump: While you obsess over my genes, your Admin is conducting DNA tests on little kids because you ripped them from their mamas & you are too incompetent to reunite them in time to meet a court order. Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you’re destroying,” she tweeted.

Warren’s harsh rhetoric comes after the President doubled-down on his DNA challenge earlier this week, jokingly telling a crowd of supporters ‘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.”
