Donald Trump Asks Elizabeth Warren if She'll "Run as Our First Native American Presidential Candidate?"

The war of words between President Donald Trump and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts continued Saturday after Warren officially announced her candidacy for a 2020 presidential bid.

The president has often referred to Sen. Warren as "Pocahontas," poking jabs at her claim to be of Native American heritage. Earlier this week Sen. Warren apologized after a public document from 1986 showed that she claimed American Indian as her ethnicity.

Sen. Warren, when dared by the president to take a DNA test, finally submitted one, only to find out she was estimated somewhere between 1/64th to 1/1024th — or 6-to-10 generations away from — Native American heritage.

After that test, the president said he he should back off calling her Indian names because "she's got no Indian blood."

"We can't use Pocahontas anymore, she's got no Indian blood! I have more than she does and I have none, so I can't call her Pocahontas anymore but I think I will anyway, do you mind?"

She publicly apologized for that as well. Then on Saturday, she kicked off her 2020 Democratic presidency, only to find the current president still firing shots at her.

The president welcomed the senator to the 2020 campaign Saturday via tweet, asking if she'd run as a Native American or not.

"Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President. Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!"

Shortly after declaring her run for the presidency and making a speech, Warren didn't call the president by name, but called him a key factor of "what's gone wrong in America," according to Fox News.

But before she made her announcement Saturday, Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale released a statement on Warren,

"Elizabeth Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career, and the people of Massachusetts she deceived to get elected," Parscale said. "The American people will reject her dishonest campaign and socialist ideas like the Green New Deal, that will raise taxes, kill jobs and crush America's middle-class. Only under President Trump's leadership will America continue to grow safer, secure and more prosperous."

Warren claimed it to be a grassroots campaign.

"I'm deeply grateful for everyone who made our announcement in Lawrence so incredible. This grassroots movement will put power back in the hands of the people – where it belongs.

Here's a list of barbs traded by Trump to Warren over the last few years.
