Trump imagines giving Warren DNA test in debate

"You deserve a senator who doesn't just talk like he's from Montana, you deserve a senator who actually votes like he's from Montana", Trump said, endorsing the Republican candidate for the Senate seat, state Auditor Matt Rosendale.

President Donald Trump resumed his racially charged attacks on Elizabeth Warren's claims of Native American heritage Thursday.

"Hope he has the opportunity to take a look at some of the challenges we have in the state, whether it's getting around to some of our veterans clinics, especially in our rural towns, to make sure he sees the challenges they have", Tester says.

While Trump's comment originally began as an attack on the media - as most mainstream outlets have infamously been branded "fake news" by him - it quickly transformed into an obvious jibe at Warren, who is rumored to be his potential opponent in the 2020 election cycle. "You know those little kits they sell on television for two dollars?" "To the fake Pocahontas, I won't apologize", he continued as the almost all-white crowd roared. "I'm going to get one of those little kits and in the middle of the debate, when she proclaims she's of Indian heritage - because her mother said she has high cheekbones, that's her only evidence, that her mother said she had high cheekbones".


His barbs against the media came on a day when newsrooms across the US held a moment of silence in remembrance of five Maryland newspaper staffers who were fatally shot last week by a man who authorities say held a grudge against the publication. Elizabeth Warren, who he continues to dog over her past statements on her Native American heritage.

'I want to apologize. "Navy Admiral Ronny Jackson,"' Trump told a crowd in Montana at a political rally. "To you, I apologize".

Despite groans from his supporters in the crowd, President Donald Trump apologized during his campaign rally in Montana on Thursday for repeatedly using the name "Pocahontas" as an insult over the years.

She responded Thursday on Twitter, alleging Trump sought to redirect national attention from migrant children separated from their families at the border. "Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you're destroying".


But the free-wheeling speech also featured a laundry list of Trump's favorite rally topics during another summer campaign event in a state that went heavily for him in 2016.

Mr. Trump accepted Pruitt's resignation in a tweet and said that Pruitt's EPA deputy Andrew Wheeler will take over his position starting Monday. And Trump is campaigning hard there to maintain or possibly enlarge the slim GOP majority.

"Democrats want anarchy", Trump said during his Montana rally. "The joke, I guess, is supposed to be on me", she added.

Mr. Trump said he felt guilty for nominating for Jackson, who withdrew his nomination amid questions of ethical lapses involving drinking and prescribing medication. Trump appears to have conflated it with being polite. Trump's message will influence his decision, he said.
