CNN’s Jim Acosta asked Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) if President Trump “gets under your skin” with attacks on her claims of Native American heritage on “State of the Union” on Sunday.

Warren cited family stories, saying her father’s family did not want him to marry her mother because of her Native American blood.

“Does that bother you when the president calls you ‘Pocahontas?’ Do you think that he is being disrespectful to Native Americans when he does that?” Acosta asked. “Doesn’t that bother you?”

The senator told Acosta that she would respond to Trump’s “racial slur[s]” with more defense of the Native American community.

Warren then began discussing issues facing Native communities.

Just last week, a Massachusetts editorial challenged Warren to take a DNA test over her ancestry claims, which have never been proven. She has refused.
