President Donald Trump said Monday he won't donate money on behalf of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., until he "personally" handles a DNA test that would prove she is part-Native American.

In response to whether he would pay her the money Warren claims he owes her or the charity of her choice, President Trump said she would first have to win the 2020 Democratic nomination for president.

"You mean if she gets the nomination in the debate where I was going to have her tested?" Trump said in Georgia when asked about the story, according to The Hill.

"I'll only do it if I can test her personally, OK? That will not be something I enjoy doing, either."

Warren had a DNA test done to show whether she really has Native American heritage, a claim she's made for years. Trump and others on the right have ridiculed her for it because they felt she was lying.

Warren's DNA test results, published in The Boston Globe, showed that there's a slight chance — between 1/64th and 1/1,024th — that she is actually Native American. Warren said Trump owes her or a charity of her choice $1 million after he pledged to donate the money if she proved through a DNA test that she was Native American.

"Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong," Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin said, according to Fox News.

"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. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage."
