Elizabeth Warren Publicly Apologizes For Calling Herself Native American

The report revives a controversy over Warren's past assertions of Native American Indian heritage that threatens to be a drag on her nascent run for her party's nomination to challenge President Donald Trump next year.

"I can't go back", Warren said in an interview with The Post.

Warren has been asked to clarify her apology to the Cherokee Nation multiple times this week.

Warren's sharp criticisms of Wall Street and efforts to regulate large corporations that she depicts as preying on ordinary Americans have made her a polarizing figure.

However the latest snafu has raised questions about whether or not Warren's presidential campaign, which has still not officially been announced, will be able to endure a sustained amount of negative coverage.

A reporter on Wednesday asked if she would drop out of the race and she responded, "Thank you". On Wednesday, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith slammed Elizabeth Warren after the senator apologized for claiming to be "American Indian" in a Texas State Bar application from 1986. "She is sorry that she was not more mindful of this earlier in her career", said Kristen Orthman, a spokeswoman for Warren, in a statement.

Kanter's expiring contract at $18.6 million made trade options a hard match for the Knicks. NY also has roughly $70 million in cap space this summer - enough for two max contracts.

Warren's claims have long drawn taunts from Republicans who suggested she was lying about them - including President Trump, who has called her "Pocahontas". She had been planning to formally launch her presidential campaign on Saturday.

Warren apologized to leaders of the Cherokee Nation earlier this month.

Warren also had her ethnicity changed from white to Native American in December 1989 while working at the University of Pennsylvania.

Another reporter followed up by asking whether there could be any other documents on which she identified herself as an "American Indian". I'm not a Tribal Citizen, tribes and only tribes can determine citizenship.

She reiterated that she is not a tribal citizen, and would not directly answer why she marked herself as such on the form.

Warren told the Post on Tuesday that she was sorry "for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted". At a debate with her Republican opponent in her Senate race in October, she said she took a DNA test and posted a video about it because she believes one way to rebuild trust in government is by posting her full family history online "so anybody can take a look".
