The internet has gone into overheat after United States President Donald Trump on Thursday told a mass meeting that he will be donating $1 million to Senator Elizabeth Warren's best-loved charity if she accepts to take a DNA test in order to prove her Native American heritage.

Trump seemed to mock the #MeToo movement, in a wide-ranging address in Montana and once again referred to Warren as 'Pocahontas.'

Trump said he would begin by throwing her a DNA testing kit over Warren, a major Democratic critic of Trump who listed herself as Native American earlier in her career based on anecdotal evidence provided by her parents.

"In the middle of the debate, when she proclaims that she is of Indian heritage because her mother said she has high cheekbones, we will take that little kit – we have to do it gently, because we're in the #MeToo generation and we will slowly toss it, hoping it doesn't hit her and injure her arm," Trump told the cheering crowd.

"And I will say: 'I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump if you take the test that proves you're an Indian.'"

For referring to Warren as Pocahontas, in the past, Trump has come under fire. During 2016 presidential election, Trump initially debuted the put-down and recurrent it over again in November earlier this year during an event to accolade Navajo code talkers from World War II at the White House.

Warren referencing the number of children still separated from their parents on the U.S.-Mexico border, she Tweeted saying the president should concentrate "on fixing the lives you're destroying."

Nevertheless, many commenters besides offered their assistance for the president's remarks and called on Warren to rise to his challenge.
