President Trump said Thursday that if he were facing Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) during a debate, he would offer her $1 million to take a test to prove her Native American heritage.

"But let's say I'm debating Pocahontas, I'll do this," Trump said during a campaign rally in Great Falls, Montana, referring to Warren by the racially charged nickname he gave her during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"I promise you I'll do this, you know those little kits they sell on television for $2? Learn your heritage," Trump said.

"I'm going to get one of those little kits and in the middle of the debate, when she proclaims she's of Indian heritage - because her mother said she has high cheekbones, that's her only evidence," Trump continued.

Native Americans are running for office in record numbers

  Native Americans are running for office in record numbers Native Americans are running for office in record-breaking numbers this election cycle. According a report published by NPR News on Wednesday, as many as ten Native American candidates will be on this fall's congressional ballot, which is reportedly twice as many as the number who ran in 2016.More Native Americans are running for lieutenant governor positions this year alone, reportedly six candidates, than the total number who ran for statewide offices in 2016.

Elizabeth Warren is in a 2020 presidential debate against him, he will -- at that time -- offer $ 1 million to her favorite charity on the spot if she takes a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage .

Warren has claimed Cherokee and Delaware Indian heritage , citing family stories. She did not have any documentation of her Native American ancestry to prove it, even though Cherokee groups demanded it.

"We will take that little kit, we have to do it gently because we're in the #MeToo generation, we have to be very gentle," Trump said mocking the movement, which seeks to expose sexual misconduct in media, entertainment, and politics.

"We will very gently take that kit and we will slowly toss it, hoping it doesn't hit her and injure her arm, even though it only weighs probably 2 oz."

"And we will say, 'I will give you a million dollars, paid for by Trump, to your favorite charity if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian," Trump said. "And we'll see what she does. I have a feeling she will say no but we will hold it for the debates."

Trump has repeatedly attacked Warren as "Pocahontas," most recently doing so at a campaign rally last month in Nevada.

During Thursday's rally, the president said he wouldn't apologize to Warren for using the term, but that he would apologize to Pocahontas herself.

"Pocahontas, I apologize to you," Trump said Thursday. "To the fake Pocahontas, I won't," he added, referring to Warren.

Warren has stood by her claims that she is of Native American heritage.

"Look, I do know. I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere," Warren said earlier this year.
