President Donald Trump now says he wants to personally test the DNA of Sen. Elizabeth Warren if she becomes his Democratic opponent in 2020.

Trump said Monday that he does not owe $1 million to charity after the Democratic senator from Massachusetts’ DNA test results pointed to at least a sliver of Native American ancestry.

“She owes the country an apology,” said Trump, who quipped about the tiny percentage revealed by the DNA test during remarks at a briefing about damage from Hurricane Michael in Georgia.

“If she gets the nomination in the debate where I was going to have her tested,” Trump said. “I’ll only do it if I can test her personally, Ok? That will not be something I’ll enjoy doing, either.”
