Sen. Elizabeth Warren Isn't Running For President in 2020

Sen. Elizabeth Warren responded to President Trump's latest attack by bringing up native women who are victims of sexual violence

On Sunday, Warren stood by family lore as justification for her claim.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren reportedly said that she knows who she is when asked if she would take a DNA test to determine if she has Native American ancestry.

Warren, speaking Sunday, insisted that she isn't running for President in two years.

On her ancestry, the Massachusetts Senator says: "It's a part of who I am and no one's ever going to take that away".

"My mother and daddy were born and raised in Oklahoma", Warren said. And his family was bitterly opposed to that because she was part Native American.

"I think that our trade deals have been negotiated for a very, very long time now to benefit large, multinational corporations, not to benefit the American worker", she said.

"I know who I am".

She said that on CNN on Sunday, a day after President Donald Trump taunted the idea of her running at a Pennsylvania campaign rally and referred to her as "Pocahontas".

Palace talisman Zaha back in training ahead of Chelsea trip
Crystal Palace: Eagles boss Roy Hodgson has a number of injury concerns to contend with, the most pertinent being Wilfried Zaha . The defending Premier League champions are on a hard run of form to heap pressure on their Italian head coach Antonio Conte .

Last week, an editorial in the Berkshire Eagle called on the senior senator from MA to take a DNA test to finally put the issue to rest, stating she has "nothing to lose but her Achilles' heel".

The Massachusetts Democrat appeared to pushed back on calls in her home state to test whether she's actually part Native American, a claim President Trump has used against her in recent years.

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. "Never used it for anything".

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

"Her Indian heritage claims have the potential to be a wildfire, but it will take one of her primary opponents raising it to strike the match", Gray said.

'And more than half of them are attacked by non-natives.

The DNA test would settle the issue once and for all.

The speech was a clear attempt to put the controversy around her claims of heritage to rest and potentially another sign of 2020 presidential ambitions.
