Warren also tweeted Monday that Trump had once pledged to give $1 million to the charity of her choice if her DNA showed Native American ancestry.

That's what some were wondering on Twitter after the Democratic Senator from MA released the findings of a DNA test that she says is "strong evidence" of Native American heritage going as far back as 10 generations, according to The Boston Globe.

On Monday, October 15, Warren released the results of DNA test which revealed with "high confidence" she has a Native American ancestor.

The professor concluded that most of Senator Warren's DNA shows European ancestry, but there was a Native American segment - the senator has said that her Native American ancestry possibly goes back to the 1700s, according to family lore.

Trump, however, denied that he ever said it.

Warren has received stick from Trump and others on the right for her claim to Native American ancestry, with trolls calling her "Chief Spreading Bull". Warren has denied using her Native American heritage to gain any advantage. "I didn't - you better read it again". "What kid would? But I knew my father's family didn't like that she was part Cherokee and part DE, so my parents had to elope", she said at the time, CNN reported.

"My background played no role in my hiring", she says in the video, which includes clips from several bosses and co-workers saying she was hired on her merits.

Earlier this year, the senator released personnel files seeking to dispute critics who have alleged that the former Harvard Law School professor advanced her law career with a narrative that she is a descendant of Cherokee and DE tribes.

On Monday, Trump was asked for his reaction to Warren's revelation, to which he responded, "Who cares?". "I'll only do it if I can test her personally", the president told reporters while touring Hurricane Michael damage along the Gulf Coast. Warren to take a DNA test to prove whether she had Native American ancestors.

A 2014 study by Harvard University and 23andMe found that European Americans tested overall for 0.18 percent Native American ancestry, while Ms. Warren's results show she has anywhere from 0.09 percent to 3 percent. However, as far as we know Trump himself has not offered this interpretation of his statement. His spokesperson, Kellyanne Conway, however, stated, "I haven't looked at the test".

"I'm not enrolled in a tribe and only tribes determine tribal citizenship. I think she's definitely running for president". It was the Crimson that referred to her as a Native American.

"I hope she's running for president", Trump told reporters on Monday, "'cause I think she'd be very easy".

"Professor Warren claimed that she was a Native American, a person of color", he said during a debate. And we will very gently take that kit and we will slowly toss it, hoping it doesn't injure her arm even though it only weighs probably two ounces.
