President Donald Trump on Monday reneged on a promise to donate $1 million to charity if Elizabeth Warren took a DNA test to prove her Native American ancestry.
Trump responded after The Boston Globe released the results of a DNA test, which found strong evidence that Warren had Native American ancestors 6 to 10 generations ago.
According to CNN’s Abby Phillips, Trump denied that he ever made the promise to pay $1 million to charity if Warren took a DNA test.
“Who cares?” Trump told reporters on Monday. “I didn’t say that. Nope, you better read it again.”
Trump denies that he ever said he’d donate $1 million to charity if she took a DNA test and it showed she had Native American ancestry.

At a rally in July, the president fantasized about what he would say to Warren in a presidential debate.
“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,” Trump told the audience. “I have a feeling she will say no.”
