Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren shot back at President Trump’s offer to pay her $1 million dollars this Thursday to take a test to prove her Native American heritage using the same DNA resources his administration used in an attempt to reunite separated immigrant parents and children.
“Hey, @realDonaldTrump: 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,” Warren wrote.
“Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you’re destroying.”

The Department of Health and Human Services declared Thursday that it was conducting DNA tests in an attempt to reunite immigrant children separated from their parents at the border under a now-suspended administration policy.
Trump argued during a campaign rally this Thursday that if he were going up against Warren, he would pay her $1 million to take an ancestry test to back up her previous claims of Native American heritage.
“And we will say, ‘I will give you a million dollars, paid for by Trump, to your favorite charity if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian,” Trump said. “And we’ll see what she does. I have a feeling she will say no but we will hold it for the debates.”
Trump has repeatedly blasting Warren coning the nickname “Pocahontas.”
Warren has stood firm on her claims of Native American heritage, which is not documented, stating earlier this year “I know who I am.”
“Look, I do know. I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere,” Warren said at the time. Warren’s critics suggest she obtained past academic positions in part because she claimed to be Native American.
He's attacking you because he's scared of you. Stay strong. We need your voice. Don't back down. 👏👏

I can only assume that Donald Trump is terrified of Senator Warren and @RepMaxineWaters. Actually, he seems terrified of women in general.
