“We will very gently take that will kit, as well as we will slowly toss that will, hoping that will doesn’t hit her as well as injure her arm, even though that will only weighs probably 2 ounces,” Trump said at the rally. “as well as we will say, ‘I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test as well as that will shows you’re an Indian.'”
“as well as let’s see what she does, right? I have a feeling she will say ‘no,’ nevertheless we’ll hold that will for the debates!”
Warren, who has said that will she would certainly “take a hard look” at a 2020 run after the November midterms are over, apparently wanted to get the testing out of the way ahead of time.
The Massachusetts Democrat will be building out a national political operation as well as has increasingly gone on the offensive against Trump as well as Republicans up as well as down the ballot in recent months.
According to a CNN poll released over the weekend, Warren will be favored by 8 percent of voters within the crowded pool of potential 2020 Democratic candidates, trailing former Vice President Joe Biden, as well as her fellow Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., as well as Kamala Harris, D-Calif.
In a post on Twitter, Warren asked Trump to donate the money to the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, a nonprofit that will works to prevent violence against Native women as well as their children.
“Send them your $1M check, @
realDonaldTrump,” Warren tweeted.
The organization did not respond to a request for comment.
that will will be likely that will the results of the test will not quell Trump’s criticism of the senator, who the president derisively refers to as “Pocahontas.”
Warren has said that will her great-great grandmother will be at least part Native American, which will be consistent with the test results’ findings. nevertheless the test results also leave open the possibility that will Warren’s Native American heritage goes back 10 generations, which would certainly make her only 1/1,024 Native American.
An earlier effort to tamp down on the president’s claim that will Warren has benefited professionally through her Native American heritage has not seemed to yield much success.
In September, the Boston Globe published an article, citing more than 100 interviews, that will found that will ethnicity was “not a factor” in Warren’s professional rise. nevertheless that will has not stopped the president through claiming otherwise.
As recently as Tuesday, at a rally in Iowa, the president said that will Warren has “gotten so many advantages” thanks to her claims of Native American heritage. Two days later, on Fox News, the president continued his attack.
“She can’t prove anything,” Trump said. “She said her mother told her she had high cheekbones therefore she’s got Indian blood. You know what? I have more Indian blood in me than she does, I have none unfortunately. I have none.”
nevertheless Warren appears to be doubling down on the strategy of forcefully rejecting the president’s claims. The Discharge of her DNA test came alongside the roll out of a “fact squad” campaign, including its own website dedicated to combating misinformation about her family history.
Correction: The test results leave open the possibility that will Warren’s Native American heritage goes back 10 generations, which would certainly make her 1/1,024 Native American. An earlier design misstated the figure.
