Trump Rags On Elizabeth Warren's Native American Heritage In Wordless Tweet

The president shared an image of a mock campaign sign after the senator announced she may run for president in 2020.

President Donald Trump once again dunked on Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and her marginal Native American heritage on Thursday morning, this time with a mock presidential campaign logo.

The image, apparently taken from right-wing website The Daily Wire, reads “1/2020th” below Warren’s last name, a reference to her very slight Native American ancestry. 

Earlier this week, the senator and former Harvard Law School professor became the highest-profile Democrat to officially announce that she is seriously considering a presidential run for 2020.

Warren released the results of a DNA test in October to back up her claim that she likely had a Native American ancestor after enduring repeated mockery by Trump and conservative pundits. It provided “strong evidence” that she had a native ancestor six to 10 generations ago.

“It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven,” a Cherokee Nation representative said in a statement at the time.
