Kellyanne Conway called Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test ‘junk science.’ Is it?

Warren DNA analysis points to Native American heritage

President Donald Trump's feud with Democratic U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA resumed in October 2018 after Trump falsely denied offering a challenge to Warren's claim that she had Native American ancestry.

Ms Warren provided the DNA test results in a statement on her campaign website, suggesting she has a Native American ancestor dating back six to 10 generations. It shows most of Warren's ancestry is European, but a Native American relative appears in her family tree 6 to 10 generations ago. Trump falsely denied ever making the offer and later said he would donate the money only if he can personally administer the genetic test.

So Trump did say he would give $1 million to a charity of Warren's choice, but he said he would do it while engaging with Warren in a political debate, presumably for president. "No, you'd 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, reiterating that she hadn't gotten any benefits because of her heritage. While running for office in 2016, then-Republican candidate Donald Trump routinely referred to her by the race-baiting slur, "Pocahontas", at his campaign rallies.

"Her heritage had no bearing on her hiring", Jay Westbrook of the UT Austin School of Law says in the video.

At a rally in Montana this summer, the president said he would give $1m (£761,000) to charity if Ms Warren would prove her claims of Native-American heritage.

Despite Monday's DNA results, Senator Warren mentioned she is now not enrolled with any tribe. Trump has dubbed her "Pocahontas" for months.

"And Trump can say whatever he wants about me", she adds.

Although Warren and her supporters may see her DNA test results as a victory, some Democrats see it as nothing but a distraction and a waste of time as election day draws nearer.

She submitted her DNA to an expert in the field, Carlos D. Bustamante of Stanford University. "Please send the check to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center".

Warren wrote Monday morning on social media that she had not forgotten Trump's promise. "I know everybody likes to pick their junk science and sound science depending on the conclusion it seems some days, but I haven't looked at the DNA test and it really doesn't interest me to be frank with you".

In the South it became known as the "one-drop rule, " meaning that a single drop of "black blood" makes a person a black.

"I hope she is running for president, because I think she would be very easy", he said. This is in part because Native American leaders have asked tribal members not to participate in genetic databases...

"Only a Democrat, folks, would think their report from a scientist saying that she might be one 1/1024th Indian would make their claim of minority status valid".
