Elizabeth Warren is a politician and author. Since 1996, she is a member of the Democratic Party and currently a senator of the United States. Recently, the senator was asked to take a DNA test to prove that she is a Native American.
The Massachusetts Democrat talks about her ancestry on NBC’s Meet the Press, “I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere.”
Many people expect Warren to run for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Instead of answering the question about the DNA test, she talks about her family story.
The senator said:
So let me tell you the story of my family. My mother and daddy were born and raised in Oklahoma. My daddy first saw my mother when they were both teenagers. He fell in love with this tall, quiet girl who played the piano. Head over heels. But his family was bitterly opposed to their relationship because she was part Native American. They eventually eloped. They survived the Great Depression. The Dust Bowl. A lot of knocks. They raised my three brothers, all of whom headed off to the military, and me. And they fought. They loved each other. And most of all they hung together for 63 years. And that’s the story that my brothers and I all learned from our mom and our dad, from our grandparents, from all of our aunts and uncles. It’s a part of me, and nobody’s going to take that part of me away.
On Sunday, the Donald Trump Jr mocked up Warren on Twitter.
