Warren takes the test and according to sources:
"Strong Evidence" - CNN
"10th Generation" - Boston Globe
"1/1,024" - Boston Globe's BIG OPPS when people fact checked them.
Now people are saying, "PAY UP" because they feel that Trump lost.
CNN reports Trump's words as only, "Who Cares".
In fact, the video shows a little more than that... Trump's Original Statement:
"I will give you a million dollars, to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian," Trump said
at the time. "I have a feeling she will say 'no.' "
Now Warren is saying Pay Up.
Then a reporter hit him up and:
"Who cares?" he told reporters, when asked if he had heard about Warren releasing the results of her DNA test. Another reporter brought up his
promise of a $1 million charity donation. "I didn't say that," Trump said. "Nah, you'd better read it again."
Is Warren in fact a Native American?
My own opinion:
I'll get the "Technically" part out of the way since some might use it.... So I call First! Even though it's pretty weak:
Technically, he said INDIAN and not Native American - If you want to go by the 100% facts based on word meanings and not slang. But I don't care
So let's base it upon what Trump meant, or what we took him as meaning:
Is she Native American?
Some tribes require as much as 25% Native heritage but most require at LEAST 1/16th Native heritage. That is one great-great grandparent. Warren is
"1/1,024" which is like beginning of time native american.
Repeating what Trump said:
if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian.
Test - Check!
Native American - Womp Womp! - Bomp Ba Dummm! No Go! Fail! Donot go past Go, Donot collect 1 million dollars.
I don't think you can identify as Native American because you want to. That's still a no no.
What say you guys and gals?

We were at a fancy Hotel one summer and while we enjoyed the sun at poolside, I challenged all 3-kids to pee in the pool. I said you'll each receive
$10 if you do. Well, they all stood in the shallow end of the pool with that funny look on their faces then came to me all about the same time wanting
their money. I said, "prove it".
This was a huge mistake on her behalf she just fueled the fire. It comes back 1/1024 thats .09 percent. Europeans Ameticans statistically have .18
percent thats the genetic term for white people. Meaning trump probably has more indian in him.
The researchers found that European-Americans had genomes that were on average 98.6 percent European, .19 percent African, and .18 Native
Technically (pushes glasses up by the bridge and sniffs ) my documentation from the Chippewa tribe says we’re “Indian,” and I think the
form’s called a Certificate of Degree of Indian Blood (CDIB)... but whatevs.
Also, if I’m understanding it right, the test she took shows markers of “Indian” lineage, OR a couple of other ancestries, like Peruvian or
something, because there’s a lack of comparative or quality dna samples (again, “or something”)... I could be wrong. If I’m not, she didn’t
technically show she’s Indian, but rather there’s a possibility that she is... (eta: Technically, Trump wouldn’t have to pay, imo)
I do think it’s questionable that she didn’t announce publicly she was doing it, before she did it. That indicates to ME that she probably
didn’t really believe her claim, herself. (Shrug)
(2nd eta: Since I don’t know, so can someone confirm: Did the test show certainty of Native American? I’m starting to think it did, hence the
1/1024, or is it along the lines of what I said above, that it’s from not certain of lineage? Was it 1/1024 definite Native, and up to 3%
