'I'm Not Running for President': Warren Reacts to 2020 Predictions, Rips Critics of Her Ancestry
Sen. Elizabeth Warren announced on "Fox News Sunday" that she is not running for president in 2020.
Host John Roberts asked Warren about the much-discussed projections that the Massachusetts Democrat would seek to unseat President Donald Trump.
Roberts said a local paper in western Massachusetts that previously endorsed her Senate run urged her to "take the spit test" as a way to silence critics, including the president.
Trump regularly refers to Warren as "Pocahontas" -- a reference to Warren's claim that she is of Cherokee ancestry.
Warren's 2018 senatorial opponent, Dr. V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai (I-Mass.), sent her a DNA test kit for her birthday in 2017, but claimed it was 'returned to sender'.

"I'm not running for president," Warren said, adding that she stands by her identification as someone of Native American heritage.
Warren said her parents were born in Oklahoma and that her father's family was concerned about his relationship with Warren's mother, who was part Native American.
"I know who I am because of what my mother and father told me," Warren said. "It's part of who I am and no one's ever going to take that away."
