"I'm not running for president", Warren, a champion of the Democratic Party's progressive wing, told "Fox News Sunday".
"This is a group that is being injured every single day", Warren said. Elizabeth Warren is hoping to defuse an issue that has dogged her for years, her claims of Native American heritage, ahead of a possible run for president in 2020. In that speech, she said she understood "why some people think there's hay to be made" over the issue, because she wasn't enrolled in a tribe.
Warren responded with the story she said she had been told by family members about her parents - that her father's family didn't want him to marry her mother because she was part Native American. "I did not mention her Native American connection because I did not know about it".
Warren, up for re-election in November, on Friday told Carrie Saldo, host of WGBY's "Connecting Point" the story told by her parents and grandparents that her mother was part Native American "was just fine for my brothers and me". "Warren's potential appeal as a national candidate constitutes too much of a threat", the western MA newspaper editorialized.
The push is in part a rebuttal to Trump, who has repeatedly referred to Warren as "Pocahontas" to try to discredit a potential rival by calling into question her claims of heritage. "And never used it for anything".
