At a rally in July, Trump said: "And we will say, 'I will give you a million dollars, paid for by Trump, to your favorite charity if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian. we'll see what she does".

The test was analyzed by Stanford University Professor Carlos Bustamante, who teaches a course on Biomedical Data Science. She provided her test results to The Boston Globe for a story published Monday. "But mocking Native Americans or any group in order to try to get at me, that's not what America stands for".

He concluded Warren's ancestry is mostly European but says "the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor".

The Native American ancestor traces back "in the range of 6-10 generations ago", according to Mr. Bustamante's analysis.

After his initial "who cares" response, Trump said Monday he hopes Warren runs for president because she will be "easy" to beat. Please send the check to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center: "http://www.niwrc.org/donate-niwrc", Warren tweeted.

With the video release, Warren appears intent on putting to rest the president's main line of attack on her ahead of a potential presidential challenge.

"When I chose to run for Senate in 2012, I never thought that my family's Native American heritage would come under attack and my dead parents would be called liars", Senator Warren said in a statement. When pressed on the once-promised $1 million payment, Trump responded: "I didn't say that".

"Her heritage had no bearing on her hiring".

He has previously offered to make a $US1 million donation to a charity of Senator Warren's choice if she took a DNA test proving her claims. This is in part because Native American leaders have asked tribal members not to participate in genetic databases. "I understand that tribal membership is determined by tribes - and only tribes", she said. Pauline Reed's family was against her marriage to Donald Herring, so the two eloped in 1932. In August, she's posted 10 years of tax returns online.

"The 2016 Democratic nominee for president", Linskey wrote, "chafed at releasing personal information and was dogged throughout her campaign by her use of a private server while she was secretary of state".

Warren replied that it's time "for women to go to Washington to fix our broken government, and that includes a woman at the top".

Those critics have charged that Warren advanced her career with a narrative she is a descendant of Cherokee and DE tribes, although Warren has released personnel files to support her insistence that ethnicity was never a factor.
