Warren didn't answer on that front.
"I am in this fight to retain my Senate seat in 2018".
But Todd kept pressing her.
Warren also confirmed that she has no plans of running against Trump in 2020.
Todd pointed out that many presidential candidates in the past said they were not running two years before an election. Rob Gray, a Republican political analyst, said the criticism could hurt Warren more if it came from a rival Democrat. "That's where I'm focused. It's a part of who I am, and no one's ever going to take that away", Warren said.
Yikes. Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren claims to have Native American heritage, but refuses to take a DNA test to prove once and for all her heritage.
She said that on CNN on Sunday, a day after President Donald Trump taunted the idea of her running at a Pennsylvania campaign rally and referred to her as "Pocahontas".
Warren also said that she respects the distinction between heritage and citizenship and "that tribal membership is determined by tribes - and only by tribes".
Warren sought to move past questions about her background last month in an address to the National Congress of American Indians.
"Fox News Sunday" host John Roberts brought up an editorial last week from the MA newspaper The Berkshire Eagle, which wrote Warren needed to resolve the debate over her heritage. Do you think that he is being disrespectful to Native Americans when he does that?
"I am very anxious that they're going to take advantage of him", Warren said.
We all know what that test will show.
"Look, I do know". "I know who I am. Never got any benefit from it anywhere", she added.

She said her goal was to raise awareness about Native American issues everytime someone asks about her family history.
Warren further said she believes her family member's claims of Native American ancestry have been sufficient, at least for her, in addressing any questions that could be raised on the issue.
