President Donald Trump says Sen. Elizabeth Warren "is getting slammed" for releasing DNA test results showing she has some Native American ancestry.

In a series of tweets Tuesday morning, Trump called her a "complete and total fraud" and called for her to apologize.

Trump says Tuesday on Twitter that "she took a bogus DNA test and it showed that she may be 1/1024, far less than the average American."

He called it "phony" and said even the Cherokee Nation denies Warren.

The Massachusetts Democrat and possible 2020 presidential candidate on Monday released DNA test results that genealogists say show she could be anywhere from 1/64th to 1/1024th Native American.

The Cherokee Nation has questioned Warren's use of a DNA test, saying such exams are useless in determining tribal citizenship.

Trump has long ridiculed Warren's claim of Native American heritage by calling her "Pocahontas."
