President TrumpDonald John TrumpAccuser says Trump should be afraid of the truth Woman behind pro-Trump Facebook page denies being influenced by Russians Shulkin says he has White House approval to root out "subversion" at VA MORE last week enacted 25 percent tariffs on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum despite objections from Republican lawmakers. I never used my family tree to get a break or get ahead. "That's where I'm focused".
"If I don't win the election, [news] ratings are going to go so far down, they'll be out of business, every one of them", he said. "I'm not running for president".
The push is in part a rebuttal to Trump, who has repeatedly referred to Warren as "Pocahontas" to try to discredit a potential rival by calling into question her claims of heritage.
Appearing on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday, Warren said her "family story" was "deeply a part of me".
Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, said she was glad Trump agreed to exempt Canada and Mexico from the tariffs, but urged policymakers to think beyond a handful of particular industries when it comes to overhauling trade policy. Warren is sticking to the story she was told, but that doesn't make it true.
Elizabeth Warren in the years since her 2012 campaign, the Massachusetts Democrat this week said she doesn't plan on proving her heritage with a DNA test.
Warren is refusing to pledge to complete a second six-year Senate term if she's re-elected in November.
She said her parents survived the Great Depression and other hardships as they raised her and her three brothers.
Todd asked her why not get the DNA test anyway, just to know for sure?
"I do know. I know who I am. I never used it to advance my career", she reportedly told the organization. If it did not, she could offer an apology to Native American tribes and anyone else offended by her claim.
Trump returned to the familiar attack during a Pennsylvania rally Saturday night, mocking Warren, who has claimed native heritage based on family stories from her Oklahoma relatives, but does not claim membership in a tribe.
