Trump Denies Making $1M Offer to Sen. Warren Over Ancestry Claims

President Donald Trump denied on Monday that he offered Sen. Elizabeth Warren $1 million to take a DNA test proving her Native American heritage, The Hill reported.

Trump made the comments after Warren released earlier in the day the results of a test conducted by Stanford University Prof. Carlos Bustamante that "strongly support" her claims of Native American ancestry, showing that it dates back six to 10 generations, according to the Boston Globe.

When asked about his $1 million offer, Trump told reporters, "I didn't say that. You'd better read it again."

However, according to The Hill, the facts show that during a campaign rally on July 5, Trump taunted Warren, saying "I will give you $1 million, to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian. I have a feeling she will say 'no.'" 

In a tweet on Monday, Warren named the charity to which Trump should make the donation.

“NIWRC is a nonprofit working to protect Native women from violence,” Warren said, referring to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center. “More than half of all Native women have experienced sexual violence, and the majority of violent crimes against Native Americans are perpetrated by non-Natives. Send them your $1M check.”

She also called the president a liar about denying the $1 million offer, including in another tweet a video of Trump clearly making the promise.

"Having some memory problems, @realDonaldTrump? Should we call for a doctor?," Warren wrote.

Warren taunted Trump even more on Twitter.

"I took this test and released the results for anyone who cares to see because I’ve got nothing to hide. What are YOU hiding, @realDonaldTrump? Release your tax returns – or the Democratic-led House will do it for you soon enough."
