Senate

Warren calls Trump ‘creepy’ over response to her DNA test

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called President Trump "creepy" on Monday for saying he will only make good on his $1 million bet on the senator's Native American ancestry if he can test her "personally."

"We all know why [Donald Trump] makes creepy physical threats about me, right?" the Massachusetts Democrat asked on Twitter.

"He's scared. He's trying to do what he always does to women who scare him: call us names, attack us personally, shrink us down to feel better about himself," she continued. 

"It may soothe his ego - but it won't work," the senator added.

Earlier Monday, Warren released a video showing she took a DNA test that a researcher said "strongly supports" the senator's claim she has a Native American ancestor. 

Her video referenced taunts made by Trump at a campaign rally in July, during which he also said he would pay up if it's proven she is "an Indian."

"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," the president said at the time. "I have a feeling she will say 'no.'"

On Monday, Trump initially denied he ever made the offer then later said that "I'll only do it if I can test her personally."
