  • Elizabeth Warren fights back calls to take DNA test over Native American heritage claims

Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said she is not running for president in 2020. Elizabeth Warren of MA says she has no intention of running for president in 2020, but she also is leaving herself room to reconsider.

Warren further said she believes her family member's claims of Native American ancestry have been sufficient, at least for her, in addressing any questions that could be raised on the issue.

Warren sought to move past questions about her background last month in an address to the National Congress of American Indians.

Warren doesn't want to find out how much Native American ancestry she has because no matter what the percentage is, it won't be enough for most people. That's where I'm going to stay focused.

Arsenal legend Vieira hurt by Wenger criticism
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fluffed two good chances in the first half and "playmaker" Henrik Mkhitaryan once again looked clumsy. The Watford forward publicly blasted Arsenal after the reverse fixture in October, claiming the Gunners lacked "cojones".

"I know who I am because of what my mother and my father told me, what my grandmother and my grandfather told me, what all my aunts and uncles told me and my brothers", she concluded.

The President came under fire when he referred to Warren as "Pocahontas" previous year during a Navajo war veterans event at the White House.

"This government is working better and better and better for a thinner and thinner slice at the top", Warren said.

"2018. Massachusetts. Whoohoo", Warren said, adding she is more focused on the work in front of the Senate than the 2020 election.

We have let Arsene Wenger down, says Jack Wilshere
We are certainly not going to the Emirates on a day trip. "They went to Milan a little bit like when we went there in 2003". "We were not in a position to take risks, but we could not be too cautious as you lose fluidity".

Trump has taken to calling Warren "Pocahontas" as a derogatory term because she claims to have Native American ancestry. She's not running. She just said so and you heard it for yourself.

Warren added that while the issue has continued to pop up in her 2018 re-election bid, she doesn't see it as being a major concern to most MA voters.

When Todd asked her why she is against knowing the results for sure, Warren replied: 'I do know. "It's part of who I am and no one's ever going to take that away". And never used it for anything. Warren is both a lawyer and a politician, so you have to listen very carefully to how she phrases things. And he was head over heels in love with her and wanted to marry her. We need to bring some attention to it and we need to put some resources on it. A 2016 USA justice department survey said 56% of Native American women reported experiencing sexual violence.

European Central Bank ever so slowly edges closer to interest rates rise
But he said such disputes should be worked out among trade partners, not decided by measures initiated from one side. Against the pound, the euro was 0.13% lower at £0.8916 and fell 0.65% to Y130.81 versus Japan's yen.
