President Donald Trump, who said that he'd "love to run against" Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), tweeted out a meme poking fun at her purported Native American heritage.
An October DNA test revealed that Warren could be as little as 1/1024th Native American.
On Monday, Warren announced an apparent intent to run for president with the launch of exploratory committee.
What was this all about?
On Thursday, Trump shared a Twitter meme that featured a fake 2020 presidential election mock-up campaign slogan that read, "Warren 1/2020th" instead of "Warren 2020."

During an interview with Fox News' "All-American New Year" on Monday night, Trump said that he'd welcome a run against Warren in the 2020 presidential election.
"We'll see how she does, I wish her well," Trump said. "I hope she does well. I'd love to run against her."
Warren was once considered a favorite among the Democratic hopefuls, but her star has dimmed lately with the rise of more dynamic options such as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and former Congressman Beto O'Rourke (Texas).
Did her Instagram Live video work?
Warren sought to quell questions about her likability by releasing an Instagram Live video in which she cracked open a cold beer and answered questions from potential voters and her followers about her apparent presidential bid.
In her video, Warren awkwardly greeted her viewers before — very awkwardly — stepping away from the camera to get herself a beer.
"I'm gonna get me a beer," she proclaimed as she walked out of the frame.
