    “And we will say, ‘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,’ ” Trump said, to cheers and applause from the audience. “And let’s see what she does, right? I have a feeling she will say no. But we’ll hold that for the debates.”

    Posted on another forum, but i'll post it here:

    "Cherokee tribal citizenship requires that you have at least one direct ancestor listed on the Dawes Final Rolls, a federal census of those living in the Cherokee Nation that was used to allot Cherokee land to individual citizens in preparation for Oklahoma statehood in 1907.

    If you don't have that, then you're not Cherokee and shouldn't go around claiming to be."

    "Elizabeth Warren’s test fails to meet the standard required for claiming Native American tribal ancestry Funny how the media reports forgot to mention this part"

    You're shifting the goalposts. She claimed to have Native American blood. She did not claim to be a member of the Cherokee tribe.

    Source.

    Citing notorious white supremacists for support on this issue doesn't really help with the credibility of your arguments.

    What have I posted that is factually untrue? She doesn't have enough Native American DNA to claim she is one, yet she has claimed to be a monitory in the past.

    As already noted, she isn't claiming tribal citizenship. You're applying the wrong standard.

    Hot off the presses, Trump about Warren DNA test: Who cares?
    Answer: The people who know you are a male chauvinist pig, sexual predator, idiot, bully, and liar. You lost, you big fat loser. Get that pen out and right that check. We won’t hold our breaths.

    Trump coined her Pocahontas to mock and bully her while insulting native Americans. They showed a clip of Trump at the White House, honoring a WWII (?) Native American veteran and he (Trump) said: They call her Pocahontas, but I like you. The elusive, imaginary “they” who Trump often refers to as his cheer leaders.

    He is the only one who called Warren, Pocahontas. :mad:

    He said "I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the (DNA) test and it shows you're an Indian". She does not meet that criteria

    I will take the words of the great Lakota holy man, Black Elk on this matter as the final word.

    Black Elk, a famous wičháša wakȟáŋ (medicine man and holy man) of the Oglala Lakota (Sioux) said, “ I am an Indian. If you have one drop of Indian blood in your veins, then you are Indian.”

    Keep trying to defend his comments. His teasing. And moving the goalpost. Now we know he will never pay up. He never does. Just another in a long line of lies that he will never own up to.

    Again, does this test prove she's a Native American?

    I wonder if those pushing this ridiculously hyper-technical and largely irrelevant argument know how foolish it looks to the general public. Warren is now an all-but certain candidate for president. Continuing to argue that she doesn't count as Native American, despite the DNA test results, will backfire on those making it. Sometimes, you need to understand when to shut up and drop a losing argument.

    No it won't. Again, she does not meet the criteria, or standards to claim she's a Native American.

    She's not claiming to be a Native American. She is claiming she has Native American ancestry. And she does.

    Yeah funny stuff....

    This means she could be 1/1024th Native American if the ancestor is 10 generations back, Bustamante said.

    Heck I might be 1/10000000000000th Martian for all I know... LOL

    She has self identified in the past of being a minority. That's dishonest. She does not meet that criteria by DNA standards.
