Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she is not running for president in 2020.

She said that on CNN on Sunday, a day after President Donald Trump taunted the idea of her running at a Pennsylvania campaign rally and referred to her as "Pocahontas."

That's a longstanding nickname Trump gave Warren due to her claims of Native American heritage. Warren and the National Congress of American Indians consider it a racial slur when used as shorthand for Native Americans.

Warren addressed the nickname Sunday and also responded to an editorial's call for her to take a DNA test on NBC's "Meet the Press," saying, "I know who I am."
