Iranian-Americans Demand Lindsey Graham Apologize for 'Disgusting' and Racist Insult

On Monday, he first denied ever making such a promise, then said later that "I'll only do it if I can test her personally".

The DNA test results show Warren is somewhere between 1/64 and 1/1,024 Native American, or between 0.097 and 0.156 percent.

He said "using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong". Branham said that President Trump's references to Elizabeth Warren as "fake Pocahontas" are offensive because they show how pop culture has glossed over the treatment of Native Americans, particularly women.

Both Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania listed her as "Native American" on their federal labor forms.

An in-depth Globe review of Warren's professional history, including interviews with 31 professors on the Harvard Law hiring committee who offered her a job in 1993, found that Warren was viewed as a white woman by the hiring committees at every institution that employed her.

Warren has faced criticism since the Herald first reported in 2012 that she had identified herself as a minority - specifically an Indian with Cherokee and DE roots - while working as a professor.

Trump also thanked Cherokee Nation for their statement.

"Proudly Iranian over here", she said in a tweet.

Juventus are planning to deploy the tactic they used to sign Liverpool's Emre Can on Arsenal star midfielder Aaron Ramsey. That means that, as things stand, the Wales worldwide would be able to leave on a free transfer in the summer.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) weighed in on what a DNA test could potentially reveal about his ancestry on Tuesday's "Fox & Friends", awkwardly quipping: "I'll probably be Iranian".

Mullin said he is not offended by her claims, but said he finds them "extremely disappointing".

And like Trump, she's getting blowback: Jokes. Elizabeth Warren's (D-Mass.) recent announcement that she had taken a DNA test linking her to a distant Native American ancestor. "Harvard called her "a person of color" (amazing con), and would not have taken her otherwise!"

Kim TallBear, the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Peoples, Technoscience and Environment at the University of Alberta, issued a statement saying "For Elizabeth Warren to centre a Native American ancestry test as the next move in her fight with Republicans is to make yet another strike - even if unintended - against tribal sovereignty".

"While the vast majority of the individual's ancestry is European, the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor in the individual's pedigree, likely in the range of 6-10 generations ago", the report read. Trump relishes a good fight, those close to him have said, and will hit back twice as hard when he's been attacked.

A spokesman for Graham did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Should she keep to this aspiration, she would run in the American primaries for the Democrats.

The former campaign manager for President Obama, Jim Messina, blasted Warren for distracting from the "crucial" midterm races.
