Elizabeth Warren apologises for Native American claims: 'I am not a tribal citizen'



‘I am sorry that I extended confusion about tribal citizenship and tribal sovereignty and for harm caused,’ Senator Elizabeth Warren told reporters about her previous claim to  Native American heritage. ‘Tribes, and only tribes, determine tribal citizenship.’ Her apology comes after it was found that Warren listed her race as ‘American Indian’ on a 1986 State Bar of Texas registration card. The Cherokee Nation said the Massachusetts senator had apologised to them for taking a DNA test to push back against Donald Trump’s taunts about her claim of Native American heritage. Warren has said she will run against Trump for president in 2020
