Elizabeth Warren seeks to use Trump Pocahontas 'racial slur' as political tool

Sen. Elizabeth Warren graciously declined request from a MA media outlet challenging her to take a DNA test in order to prove her Native American heritage. Elizabeth Warren on Sunday about President Trump calling her "Pocahontas", and her response didn't exactly answer the question.

Warren, Democratic senator for MA, said: "When President Trump says he's putting tariffs on the table, I think tariffs are one part of reworking our trade policy overall". In fact, there is no proof Warren has any Native American blood in her at all. "2018. Massachusetts. Whoohoo." Meet the Press host Chuck Todd countered her statement by speculating if she would also commit to all six years if she were to win re-election.

"It's part of me and no one's ever going to take that away from me - not ever", she said.

'So, let me tell you the story of my family, ' she began.

Appearing on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday, Warren said her "family story" was "deeply a part of me". "My mom and dad were born and raised out in Oklahoma, and my daddy was in his teens when he fell in love with my mother".

The tariffs have anxious Wisconsin's Republican Governor Scott Walker, who last week urged Trump to reconsider. According to the Associated Press , the plan "rankled allies and raised prospects for a trade war".

Warren has been a rumored potential 2020 candidate, though on Saturday she denied that she plans to run.

However, Warren's reflection of her heritage remains based on what she was told by her parents.

When Todd asked her why she is against knowing the results for sure, Warren replied: 'I do know. "And never used it for anything, never got any benefit out of it anywhere", she said. "I understand that tribal membership is determined by tribes - and only by tribes", Warren said, adding that she never used her heritage to advance her career. Without documentation for her assertions of native heritage, she is not. I know who I am'.

"Well, maybe she could be honest with the voters and say, 'I'm thinking about it, but I'm going to run for this right now.' I don't know, maybe that would be perfectly fine", Raju replied. "That is just fundamentally wrong". A 2016 U.S. justice department survey said 56% of Native American women reported experiencing sexual violence. "We need to put some focus on this and we need to make some changes on this".
