Elizabeth Warren, President Trump Spar Over Cherokee Heritage

Trump rival takes up DNA test challenge - INTERNATIONAL

President Donald Trump has been asking for Warren's DNA results, claiming that the senator was lying about her ancestral connection to Native Americans.

The MRC noted that NBC's "Nightly News" was "eager to prove that it was somehow a awful day to be President Trump", while focusing on Warren's claim that there is "strong evidence" of her Native American ancestry. Elizabeth Warren took, which showed she has Native American ancestry, is "completely irrelevant to the process" of determining her tribal identity, the Cherokee Secretary of State told NPR's Morning Edition.

An ancestor six generations removed would make Warren 1/64th Native American while an ancestor as much as 10 generations removed would render the Massachusetts Democrat only 1/1024th Native American, Blaine Bettinger, a genealogist and author who specializes in DNA evidence, explained to the Associated Press.

Trump gleefully incorporated the statement into his tweets at the MA senator, saying on Tuesday: "Now Cherokee Nation denies her, 'DNA test is useless.' Even they don't want her. Phony!". He claimed that the results were vague at best and he criticized Warren for her using them to prove a point, describing her actions as an insult to the American Indian tribe.

Having provided the results to American newspaper the Boston Globe yesterday, Warren now has conclusive proof of her Native American ancerstry.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday derided Sen.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) weighed in on what a DNA test could potentially reveal about his ancestry on Tuesday's "Fox & Friends", awkwardly quipping: "I'll probably be Iranian".

Google Aware Of Large-Scale Data Breach But Chose Not To Disclose It
By the company's reckoning, up to 438 applications may have been able to access private profile data because of the software bug. The company said it'll focus its energy on using Google + as an enterprise product within companies.

"Argue the substance all you want, but why 22 days before a crucial election where we MUST win house and senate to save America, why did @SenWarren have to do her announcement now?"

"I think I can beat her", Graham said.

Charles Fried, the Harvard law professor who recruited Warren, has said any suggestion that she got her job in part because of a claim of minority status is "totally stupid, ignorant, uninformed and simply wrong".

"I'll only do it if I can test her personally", he said.

"That will not be something I enjoy doing either", he added.

Warren's disclosure was met with a scoff by Trump, who succinctly said "who cares?" when asked about the results by reporters. Running for re-election this fall, she also presented herself as someone who was standing up for working people and vulnerable communities. "It may soothe his ego - but it won't work", Warren tweeted.

"I never thought the President of the United States would tweet something like this out", said Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ).
