Trump says Elizabeth Warren should apologize for ancestry "fraud"

President Trump attacked Senator Elizabeth Warren's "bogus DNA test," which she announced Monday in a bid to prove her Native American ancestry, and asked her to apologize for "perpetrating this fraud" in a series of Tuesday morning tweets.

"Pocahontas (the bad version), sometimes referred to as Elizabeth Warren, is getting slammed. She took a bogus DNA test and it showed that she may be 1/1024, far less than the average American. Now Cherokee Nation denies her, 'DNA test is useless.' Even they don’t want her. Phony! ... Now that her claims of being of Indian heritage have turned out to be a scam and a lie, Elizabeth Warren should apologize for perpetrating this fraud against the American Public. Harvard called her 'a person of color' (amazing con), and would not have taken her otherwise!"
