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.”
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.”

“Do you have any reaction to Senator Elizabeth Warren releasing the results of her DNA test?” asked one reporter.

“She’ll destroy the country. She’ll make our country into Venezuela,” he added.
