"She said she was Indian. And I said that I have more Indian blood than she does, and I have none. I'm sorry," Trump said, referencing Warren. "And we drove her crazy and that's a good thing, not a bad thing. And she went out and she had a blood test done and it came out 1/1024th. He says somewhere back there hundreds of years ago there may have been an Indian or it may have been a statistical error." 

Warren took a test last year that demonstrated she was between 1/64 and 1/1028 Native American. The 2020 candidate has since apologized multiple times for the confusion caused when she identified herself as a Native American.

"I shouldn’t have done it. I am not a person of color. I am not a citizen of a tribe, and I’ve apologized for any confusion over tribal sovereignty, tribal citizenship and any harm caused by that,” Warren recently said when confronted about the blood test. 

Trump has frequently hit Warren at rallies over the subject of her heritage, often reciting inaccurate numbers from her blood test results.

Last month, Trump hit Warren during a rally for being "1/1064th" Native American.

"If she should be the candidate, which I tend to doubt, but if she should be, we'll bring it up again," Trump said at last month's rally. 

His latest jabs at Warren come after the second Democratic presidential primary debate earlier this week. Warren was seen as one of the winners of the debates, gaining more speaking time than fellow progressive front-runner Sen.
