Elizabeth Warren claims she proved her Native American ancestry to the world, but one detail just destroyed her 2020 run for President.
Elizabeth Warren, one of the most far-left Democrats in Congress, has claimed for years to be part Native American.
In fact, she claimed Native American ancestry in order to enter college. That would require a significant amount of American Indian heritage in her family tree: 25%.
Donald Trump has questioned Warren’s claims for quite a while, mocking her with the name “Pocahontas.” In fact, he challenged her to prove her ancestry, saying if she was Native American, he’d give her $1 million.
This weekend, Warren tweeted out a report from the Boston Globe that claims she is, in fact, an American Indian.
By the way, @realDonaldTrump: Remember saying on 7/5 that you’d give $1M to a charity of my choice if my DNA showed Native American ancestry? I remember – and here's the verdict.

There’s just one problem with Fauxcahontas’ story.
From Washington Examiner:
[T]he Globe acknowledged that the number actually doesn’t even reach the tenths place without rounding up.
“Correction: Due to a math error, a story about Elizabeth Warren misstated the ancestry percentage of a potential 10th generation relative. It should be 1/1,024,” the Globe said in its correction. That would put the percentage at .097.
Turns out Warren has less Native American blood than most white people! According to a study from 23andMe and Harvard University, Fauxcahontas is hardly an Indian.
From Genetic Literacy Project:
With respect to European Americans, the percentages are much more different than African Americans or Latinos, with European American genomes being 98.6 percent European, 0.19 percent African and 0.18 percent Native American.
The average white American has around .18% Native American heritage. Warren couldn’t even get .01%.
Chances are, if you’re reading this and you’re a white American, you’re more of an Indian than Warren.
But she does have some Native American blood. Does that mean Trump lost? Let’s keep things in perspective. In order for the United States to recognize someone as a member of a tribal nation, they need to be at least 1/4 Indian.
That’s 25%. Fauxcahontas is a loooong way from that.
So, she’s a big fat liar.
Trump took her to task when asked about her by reporters. He reminded everyone that Warren is a prospective 2020 candidate for the Democrats. He had fun with that.
"I hope she's running for president because I think she would be very easy," says President Trump on Senator Elizabeth Warren possibly running for president in 2020. https://t.co/5fRbViPgKg pic.twitter.com/byPlKSzAI7

The president knows what’s up. There’s no way he’s giving this faker a million bucks.
Be sure to SHARE this story with everyone. Warren has been cashing in on a lie for years. It’s time she owned up to it.
