President Donald Trump ripped into Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at a political rally in Montana on Thursday — and announced his million dollar plan for her in a hypothetical 2020 presidential debate.
Trump told the crowd that Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden are his likely 2020 opponents, and before a presidential debate he will order a DNA test kit so he’s prepared for Warren’s claims of Indian heritage.
“I promise you I’ll do this: You know those [DNA tests] they sell on television for $2? I’m going to get one of those little kits,” the president told the laughing crowd.
“In the middle of the debate, when she proclaims she’s of Indian heritage because her mother said she has high cheekbones, we will take that little kit and — but we have to do it very gently because we’re in the ‘me too’ generation — we will very gently take that kit and we will slowly toss it, hoping it doesn’t hit her and injure her arm,” Trump continued. “And we will say: ‘I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity — paid for by Trump — if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian.’ And lets see what she does.”
“I have a feeling she will say no,” the president concluded.
At the rally, Trump also attacked the Democratic Party’s newest platform to “abolish ICE,” the acronym for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Democratic senators considered possible 2020 challengers to Trump, such as Kirsten Gillibrand and Kamala Harris, have floated the idea of scrapping the border protection agency.
Calls to abolish the agency sprang up after Trump’s administration began strictly enforcing immigration laws at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Trump leaned heavily into the immigration issue, saying voters need Republicans to win in November if they want to protect their families and communities. Trump also claimed that Democrats “couldn’t give a damn” about law enforcement.
Warren took to Twitter to fire back at the president.
She tweeted —
Hey, @realDonaldTrump: While you obsess over my genes, your Admin is conducting DNA tests on little kids because you ripped them from their mamas & you are too incompetent to reunite them in time to meet a court order. Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you're destroying.

Social media critics fired back at Warren’s claim —
So senator, is it your considered opinion that doing DNA tests on little kids (to ensure they are re-united with a real parent and not some child-trafficker) is a bad thing? Are you going to get any better or is this it?

Hey, Someone explain to Pocahontas they are doing the DNA test because people who said this is their child don't seem to know anything about them. Little things that point to a child being sex trafficked north of the border, the reason.

Hey Lizzy, you’re screaming awfully loud against kids finding their biological parents. How complicit are YOU in all the child trafficking that’s been going on? Just paid off, or really in on it??

Sorry, Mr. President, but we just couldn’t help ourselves. We had to share.
