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

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

Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., to take a DNA test to end doubt about having Native American blood grabbed the national spotlight Sunday.

"Fox News Sunday" host John Roberts brought up an editorial last week from the MA newspaper The Berkshire Eagle, which wrote Warren needed to resolve the debate over her heritage.

Warren, speaking later on CNN, noted that she spoke to a group of Native Americans last month to say she'd fight for them when Trump uses the slur. She's making a cynical political play to have Native Americans back her story whether it's true or not.

"I am not running for president of the United States", she said on NBC.

Warren's response came after Todd read a portion of the editorial, posted on the television screen, that appeared in The Eagle's Tuesday edition. "And the American government is doing nothing about this". Elizabeth Warren of MA says she has no intention of running for president in 2020, but she also is leaving herself room to reconsider.

For her critics, Warren's speech did little to quell suspicions she used claims of Native American heritage to give herself a leg up early in her academic career.

Condotta says that the team was interested in trying to get Sherman to agree to a pay cut but that he "balked" at such a proposal. He will be 30 years old going into next season and coming off an Achilles tendon injury that cost him half of the 2017 season.

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

Making the Sunday show rounds today, Warren definitively ruled out a 2020 presidential run.

An analysis of the bill from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said its passage would increase the likelihood of a major financial institution cratering or a financial crisis, a point Warren cited during the interview, taped Saturday. "Warren's potential appeal as a national candidate constitutes too much of a threat", the western MA newspaper editorialized.

"I know who I am because of what my mother and my father told me, what my grandmother and my grandfather told me, what all my aunts and uncles told me and my brothers. Never got any benefit from it anywhere", Warren said. She said "no one" could take that away from her. Scott Brown continuously questioned her claims of Native American heritage.

Certainly not a DNA test that might actually establish who she is.
