President Donald Trump continued to train fire on possible 2020 challenger Sen. In the video, originally posted on Instagram in December, Warren is seen sipping beer in her kitchen while introducing her husband to viewers. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Beto O'Rourke.

"Wounded Knee" refers to the 1890 massacre of Lakota Indians by USA troops, while "Bighorn" refers to the 1876 Battle of Little Bighorn, often called "Custer's Last Stand".

In the Instagram video, livestreamed on New Year's Eve, Warren introduces her husband after making her announcement to run for the Democratic nomination for president. "It's their house, he's supposed to be there!"

"I drink Michelob Ultra - the club soda of beers", she joked.

"Um, want a beer?" she then asked as her husband, Bruce Mann, briefly entered the room.

Trump has repeatedly attacked Warren over her claims of Native American heritage and has publicly nicknamed her "Pocahontas".

The test, performed by Stanford University professor Carlos Bustamante, concluded that while the vast majority of Warren's ancestry is European, there is definitive evidence that she has Native American blood. While she used the results to counter allegations she lied about that ancestry to get ahead in academia, Trump and other Republicans highlighted how diluted that ancestry was revealed to be.

At a campaign rally in July past year, Trump said he would donate a million dollars to Warren's "favourite charity" if she took a test proving her Native American heritage.

On the day the live stream was posted, Warren had announced that she would be running for US President in 2020 - the first major candidate to do so. Besides advocating for reforms to health care, student debt, and the minimum wage, Warren touched on breaking news with a call for an end to the ongoing partial federal government shutdown, which is now the longest in American history.
