The Bureau of Indian Affairs discourages the use of DNA tests in trying to prove ancestry from a specific federally recognized tribe - something Warren said she was not attempting to do. "Her false claim of Indian heritage is only selling to VERY LOW I.Q. individuals!" the President tweeted.

Warren said earlier this month that she will strongly consider running in 2020, once next month's midterm elections are done.
