Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) took to Twitter to respond to President Donald Trump mocking her claims of having a native American heritage at the campaign rally in Great Falls, Montana, Thursday, even going so far as offering her a million dollars if she took a DNA test. The Hill noted recently that Warren "was questioned during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" about an editorial in a MA newspaper, 'Warren must resolve debate on heritage, ' which said a DNA test would 'permanently resolve the issue'".
"Pocahontas, I apologize to you", Trump said. I apologize to you. "And I hereby... oh no I want to apologise I'll use tonight". "To the fake Pocahontas, I won't apologize".
And while Kelly found fault with Trump calling Warren "Pocahontas", she and the president were on the same page on another subject.
Said Trump: "Let's say I'm debating Pocahontas".
Trump then said that if he debated her in the upcoming 2020 presidential election, he would confront her with a $2 DNA testing kit and demand that she take it.

US President Donald Trump could not contain his contempt for the #MeToo movement at a rally in the US on Thursday night (Friday AEST). Elizabeth Warren's claim that she has Native American heritage. "I believe him", Trump said.
"While you obsess over my genes, your Admin.is conducting DNA tests on little kids because you ripped them from their mamas & you are too incompetent to reunite them in time to meet a court order". "Instead, he mentioned the movement just so he could mock the "#MeToo generation" for their sensitivity. "[Warren] should take the heritage test and if it backs her up, she can check the box as much as she wants".
The 32-year-old's comments come shortly after her appearance at a Families Belong Together march in Los Angeles last week, which was held to protest against the separation of migrant families at the U.S border. "Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you're destroying", she wrote. To demands that he apologise for his taunts, Trump replied by sarcastically apologising to the historical figure.
"Look, I campaigned hard against Donald Trump in the primary, and I campaigned for people that were men of civility and honor and dignity".
