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

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

A MA newspaper has challenged Warren to clear up questions about her claims to Native American heritage by taking a DNA test.

The high-profile liberal is often discussed as a potential 2020 rival to President Donald Trump.

"If I don't win the election, [news] ratings are going to go so far down, they'll be out of business, every one of them".

Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, said she was glad Trump agreed to exempt Canada and Mexico from the tariffs, but urged policymakers to think beyond a handful of particular industries when it comes to overhauling trade policy.

In several television interviews, Warren, who has been touted as a potential 2020 presidential candidate, said she saw a role for tariffs as part of United States trade policy.

Woods has been slowed by mistakes, some leading to big numbers the last time he played at the Honda Classic. While at Kent State, Conners listed Woods as one of the golfers he'd most like to play with in a foursome.

Last November Trump used the name at an event honoring Native American Code Talkers who served in World War II.

"I know who I am".

Also Sunday, Warren denied she intends to challenge Trump in 2020.

Warren, during an interview on WGBY-TV's "Connecting Point", largely dismissed a Berkshire Eagle editorial's call for her to "take the spit test" and set the record straight on whether or not she has Native American ancestry.

The Democrat, who had reportedly claimed family ties to Cherokee and DE tribes, said she was unaware that the university had promoted her as a minority professor, according to the Associated Press.

Warren also said that she respects the distinction between heritage and citizenship and "that tribal membership is determined by tribes - and only by tribes".

"I am very anxious that they're going to take advantage of him", Warren said. When asked about her claim of Native American heritage, however, the MA lawmaker deflected, citing her family history and what she had been told by her parents. "Never used it for anything".

Harvard Law School professor Charles Fried, who helped recruit Warren, has called any suggestion she enjoyed an affirmative-action benefit "nonsense". Warren could deliver the rebuke of all rebukes to Trump by posting her DNA test results to back up her claims.
