He went on to say that he hopes Warren is running for president, because she would be a "very easy" opponent. That could further excite her critics instead of placating them.

This morning, Trump declared, "Who cares..."

"Native Americans have faced discrimination, neglect, and violence for generations", Warren said.

The analysis on the Massachusetts Democrat was done by Stanford University professor Carlos D. Bustamante.

Responding to years of derision from US President Donald Trump, senator Elizabeth Warren has released a DNA test that shows "strong evidence" she has Native-American heritage.

The five-minute video depicts Ms. Warren's family recounting their history and reacting to Mr. Trump's comments.

Warren acknowledged that she had identified herself as a minority in a legal directory for almost a decade, and she was listed as a Native American in federal forms filed by the law schools at Harvard University and University of Pennsylvania where she worked, The Boston Globe reported in 2012.

He concluded that "the vast majority" of Warren's ancestry is European, but he added that "the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor".

Tamping down accusations made by many Republicans that she parlayed her heritage to benefit her career, the video includes a number of law professors - including from Harvard Law and the University of Pennsylvania Law School - attesting that she was hired for her ability. It also emphasizes Ms. Warren's claim that she never used her Native American heritage to get a job.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., (left) announced on Friday that she had sent a letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission concerning what she said were Trump's "reckless comments on market-moving economic data prior to their public release". Last month, the Globe reported that her heritage was not considered by Harvard Law faculty when analyzing her application in the 1990s.

Moments later, Trump denied making such an offer: "I didn't say that", Trump told reporters at the White House. That would make Warren one-32nd Native American. The senator has told this story many times before. As the senator explains in a video announcing the DNA results, the fact that her mother came from a family that (purportedly) had indigenous "blood" caused her father's parents to oppose their relationship. This is in part because Native American leaders have asked tribal members not to participate in genetic databases.
