Nikki Haley Jokes She’s Not An ‘Indian Woman’ In Swipe At Elizabeth Warren



“I get it, you wanted an Indian woman, but Elizabeth Warren failed her DNA test,” Haley cracked during her keynote address for the charity dinner. “Actually, when the president found out that I was Indian-American, he asked me if I was from the same tribe as Elizabeth Warren.”

The former South Carolina governor’s parents emigrated to the United States from India. 

The Cherokee Nation criticized Warren for the “inappropriate and wrong” test and said she was “undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.” 

The annual Alfred E. Smith dinner is known for its laid-back conviviality and joke-cracking politicians.

Watch Haley’s full speech below.
