Elizabeth Warren Insists She Isn't Running for President in 2020

Trump hits possible Warren presidency: 'Pocahontas' is losing an audience

Sen. Elizabeth Warren reportedly said that she knows who she is when asked if she would take a DNA test to determine if she has Native American ancestry. At a Saturday rally in Pennsylvania to boost GOP special election candidate Rick Saccone, Trump alluded to a potential run by Warren, saying that "ratings" for news media companies would go down if she or Senator Bernie Sanders ran on the Democratic ticket. It's a term that Warren has said she considers a racial slur. But she's also been dogged by the allegation that she has claimed Native American ancestry to advance her academic career.

Rather than address that question specifically, Warren told a story about how her mother and father, born and raised in Oklahoma, met as teenagers and fell head-over-heels in love.

Host John Roberts asked Warren about the much-discussed projections that the Massachusetts Democrat would seek to unseat President Donald Trump.

Still, Warren says there does need to be a diplomatic solution with North Korea.

"This is a group that is being injured every single day", Warren said.

Speaking with NBC's Chuck Todd, Warren did not shy away from her critique of the pending banking legislation and-though she did not name names-made it clear she has little patience for those she views as siding with Wall Street banks over American consumers and the broader health of the economy.

Warren added that while the issue has continued to pop up in her 2018 re-election bid, she doesn't see it as being a major concern to most MA voters. Her parents, she said, eventually eloped.

"Therefore, we offer a simple suggestion that could not even have been contemplated when Warren first listed her heritage on an employment form".

Warren's response came after Todd read a portion of the editorial, posted on the television screen, that appeared in The Eagle's Tuesday edition.

"I know who I am", Warren tartly responded.

She said she wanted to turn the incident into a positive and try and lift up other people to tell their stories. "That is just fundamentally wrong". "More than half of all native women have been the victims of sexual violence", she said.

"We need to bring some attention to it and we need to put some resources on it", she added.
