Trump On Elizabeth Warren DNA Test: "Who Cares?" I Hope She Runs, "She'd Be Very Easy"

|

President Trump said Monday morning that he hoped Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) runs for president because "she'd be very easy" to beat. Trump was asked to react to a DNA test Warren performed that apparently shows she has some Native American heritage. Warren, who Trump has nicknamed 'Pocahontas,' was challenged by the president in July to take a DNA test. He offered to donate $1 million to her favorite charity.

"Who cares?" Trump responded as he held a press availability before boarding Marine One.

"I didn't say that you better read that again," the president said about the million dollar challenge.





"I hope she's running for president because I think she'd be very easy," he said. "I hope that she is running. I do not think she'll be difficult at all. She'll destroy the country. She'll make the country into Venezuela. With that being said, I don't want to say bad things about her because I hope she would be one of the people that would get through the process. It's going to be a long process for the Democrats."

Warren went to Twitter:
