President Donald Trump sent the political world into a frenzy on Thursday night when he offered Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) $1 million to the charity of her choice if she took a DNA test to prove she is Native American like she claims.
"We have to do it gently because we’re in the Me Too generation, so we have to be very gentle," Trump told a rally crowd in Montana. "We will very gently take that kit, and we will slowly toss it, hoping it doesn’t hit her and injure her arm, even though it only weighs probably 2 ounces. 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.' And we’ll see what she does.”
The president added, “I have a feeling she will say no, but we will hold out for the debates.”
Well, the 2020 presidential hopeful responded to Trump’s challenge, sidestepping the questions surrounding her heritage claims and attacking him over the administration’s tough immigration policies.
“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,” she tweeted. “Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you're destroying.”
It sounds like she doesn't have any interest in taking the DNA test.
Trump brutally mocked Warren during the Montana rally, indicating he believes she will be running as a Democratic candidate in 2020. He repeatedly called the far-left liberal "Pocahontas," mocking her heritage controversy.
Watch part of his speech below:
"They want me to apologize for saying it," Trump said. "No, I want to apologize. I'll use tonight. Pocahontas, I apologize to you. I apologize. To you, I apologize. To the fake Pocahontas, I won't, though."
No matter what, the 2020 presidential election is going to be an exciting event.
