BOSTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is falsely denying that he offered $1 million for Sen. Elizabeth Warren to take a DNA test to prove whether she had Native American ancestors.

Warren, a Democrat from Massachusetts, is a widely rumored 2020 presidential candidate. On Monday she released results of a DNA test that provide what an analyst says is “strong evidence” she has a Native American in her family tree.

Trump has long taunted Warren about the claim, calling her “Pocahontas.”

At a summer rally in Montana, the president declared that he would give a million dollars to charity , “paid for by Trump,” if Warren takes the test “and it shows you’re an Indian.”

But when asked by reporters on Monday, Trump claimed “I didn’t say that.”

In a tweet, Warren asked Trump to donate $1 million to a Native American women’s group.
