Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren had the confidence to release a document saying that she MIGHT be 1/1024 Native American on Monday.
She released DNA test results examining her possible ancestry in response to criticism from President Trump and many others. (Video Below)
The results were shared with The Boston Globe, that reportedly reveal “strong evidence” the Massachusetts senator had a Native American ancestor dating back six to 10 generations. The report only shows trace amounts of that heritage which many have claimed she used to advance her career at Harvard.
According to the analysis, if Warren’s great-great-great-grandmother were Native American, she would be considered 1/32 Native American. Should Warren’s ancestor date back 10 generations, she would be only 1/1,024 Native American.
(The newspaper originally pegged the latter figure as 1/512, but in a correction that didn’t do Warren any favors, later added a note saying, “Due to a math error, a story about Elizabeth Warren misstated the ancestry percentage of a potential 10th generation relative. It should be 1/1,024.”) Via Fox News.
“To put that in perspective, Warren might even be less Native American than the average European American,” Republican National Committee Deputy Communications Director Mike Reed said in an email, while saying this would “not give you the right to claim minority status.” (Video Below)
President Trump has slammed Warren over her heritage claims several times while coining her the name “Pocahontas.”
“I’ve got more Indian blood in me than Pocahontas, and I have none,” Trump said. “Hey, I have high cheekbones too, maybe I’m Indian.”

Over the summer, the President said that if Warren did mount a presidential run in 2020 and the two faced off in a general election debate, he would offer $1 million to her favorite charity on the spot if she took a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage.
“Who cares? I didn’t say that. You better read it again.” He said.
Trump added that he “hopes” Warren runs for president.
“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. it’s going to be a long process for the Democrats.” The President said.
