Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., to take a DNA test to end doubt about having Native American blood grabbed the national spotlight Sunday.

The latest interest in questioning whether or not Warren has her sights set on a 2020 run is the result of Donald Trump, who mentioned that "ratings" would go down if her or Bernie Sanders were to run for president at a rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday.

When asked on Sunday morning's "Meet the Press with Chuck Todd" if she would "pledge" to voters to serve out a full six-year term representing Massachusetts, Warren repeatedly avoided the question, while insisting she is not running for president.

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 the story that my brothers and I all learned from our mom and our dad, from our grandparents", Warren said.

Chad could be removed from the U.S. travel ban list
Nigeria is Africa's biggest oil producer whose security forces are battling Boko Haram Islamist militants in the northeast. And in the months since, the US has repeatedly praised Chad's efforts to improve its compliance with USA requirements.

Last year, Warren famously spawned the #ShePersisted hashtag on social media after she was silenced by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on the floor of the Senate during the confirmation battle over Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

What Warren said this weekend was a non-answer and the usual, deceptive verbal dancing of politicians everywhere.

"Let me tell you a little bit about my family", Warren said Sunday.

"My mother and daddy were born and raised in Oklahoma".

Trump derisively refers to Warren as "Pocahontas" to mock her claim about being part American Indian.

Makol Mawien led the Wildcats with a total of 16 points and helped contain the Horned Frogs under 70 points for the entire game. Theo Pinson, who dropped the ball out of bounds with 11 seconds left, made two free throws with 3.2 seconds left to seal it.

"It's a part of who I am and no one's ever gonna take that away", she said.

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.

Warren's response came after Todd read a portion of the editorial, posted on the television screen, that appeared in The Eagle's Tuesday edition.

"I do know. I know who I am".

"She obviously sounds very evasive", Raju said. If it did not, she could offer an apology to Native American tribes and anyone else offended by her claim. "More than half of all native women have been the victims of sexual violence", she said. "We need to put some focus on this and we need to make some changes on this".
