Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said on Tuesday that he is taking a DNA test to prove that he is more Native American than Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren.


Warren, who represents Massachusetts, released the results of a DNA test over the weekend after years of criticism of her claims that she has Native American ancestry.

Graham promised Tuesday on Fox News that he would release the results of his own test in a couple of weeks. (RELATED: Sen. Hatch Trolls Sen. Warren, Claims He Is 1/1032 T-Rex)

“I’m going to take a DNA test,” Graham said. “I’ve been told that my grandmother was part Cherokee … it may just be all talk, but you’re going to find out in a couple of weeks.”

“I’m taking it and the results are gonna be revealed here,” he said. “This is my Trump moment, this is reality TV.”

Graham said he believes he can surpass Warren, who is somewhere between 0.09 and 1.5 percent Native American. President Donald Trump once told Warren that he would donate one million dollars to her favorite charity if she proved that she is Native American. (RELATED: Warren Releases Results Of Her DNA Test)

“Will you ask for a million dollars from the president too?” Fox’s Brian Kilmeade asked Graham.

“No, I want a casino and a million bucks,” Graham replied.
