At a rally in Cincinnati, Ohio, President Trump decided to take another jab at Elizabeth Warren and her lies about her Native American heritage.
But a man who really has done a fantastic job. He campaigned so hard, and this was a star right from the fields of the great Pocahontas, who’s now lying and cheating her way to the presidency if possible. She’s trying to win. Remember?
She defrauded people with her credentials. She said she was Indian, and I said that I have more Indian blood than she does – and I have none. I’m sorry – and we drove her crazy, and we drove her crazy. That’s a good thing, not a bad thing.
And she went out and she had a blood test done, and it came out 1,024th. He says, ‘Somewhere back there, hundreds of years ago, there may have been an Indian, or it may have been a statistical error,’ [because] it was so small, which it was.”
The Washington Post obtained a card for the State Bar of Texas from 1986, allegedly filled out by Warren herself, on which her ethnicity was listed as “American Indian.”
The outlet adds that from 1986 to 1995, Warren listed herself as a “minority” in the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) directory. Additionally, from 1995 to 2004, Harvard Law School reportedly listed Warren as Native American on forms relating to affirmative action.
The Harvard Crimson referenced then-Harvard Law School spokesman Mike Chmura when it included the following passage in a 1996 article:
Although the conventional wisdom among students and faculty is that the Law School faculty includes no minority women, Chmura said Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren is Native American.
“Warren also had her ethnicity changed from white to Native American in December 1989 while working at the University of Pennsylvania,” reports The Washington Post.
