Trump denies offering $1M after Warren takes DNA test

Sen. Elizabeth Warren D-Mass. gestures while speaking at the National Press Club in Washington Tuesday Aug. 21 2018. Warren wants a lifetime ban on members of Congress from getting hired as lobbyists after they leave public office. She also wants

During a rally this past July, Trump revived his personal taunts of the MA senator's heritage claims, pledging - "I promise you I'll do this" - that he would challenge Warren - who appears to be preparing for a 2020 presidential bid - to take a DNA test to back up her claims if they faced each other in a debate. He concluded Warren's ancestry is mostly European but says "the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor".

Mr Trump denied having made the dare.

The video shows Ms Warren's family - including brothers who say they are Republicans - criticising the president's taunts. "No, you'd better read it again".

The filmmaker also said, "I suspect that, given the criteria being used by Elizabeth Warren, that @realDonaldTrump has more American Indian ancestry than she does".

"Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage", the statement also said.

"Her heritage had no bearing on her hiring".

At a summer rally in Montana, the president declared that he would give a million dollars to charity, "paid for by Trump", if Warren takes the test "and it shows you're an Indian".

But on Monday one of Trump's top advisers, Kellyanne Conway, appeared to deny that a controversy over Warren's heritage had ever taken place, calling the test the president had specifically asked the senator to take "junk science". Trump has dubbed her "Pocahontas" for months.

Interpol president reportedly missing in China; French police investigating
Meng Hongwei, 64, was elected the new president of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) in November 2016. Meng's family hasn't received any news from him since his September 29 departure for China, according to Europe 1 .

The report says Warren could have a Native American relative as recently as six generations ago, giving her 1/32 American Indian heritage if accurate, according to The Washington Post.

Diehl said he thinks part of Warren's aim in dropping the DNA bombshell is to divert the attention of MA voters away from just how much time she is spending on her presidential ambitions.

In a tweet, Warren urged Trump to send the check to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center.

Who knows whether Trump will admit that Warren is right and pay the money.

The analysis of her DNA was done by Carlos D Bustamante, a Stanford University professor who the Boston Globe reported was an expert in the field. If one ancestor 300 years ago is enough to entitle you to "appropriate" a particular culture, there'll be very few cultures that can't properly be appropriated by the average white American.

"Professor Warren claimed that she was a Native American, a person of color", he said during a debate.

As Senator Elizabeth Warren's profile has risen over the last couple of years, she has seemed increasingly likely to run for president in the 2020 election. "I think it means that she's definitely running for president because she wanted to put this behind her, and the politics of this are more interesting". "I think she's definitely running for president".
