The video is a snippet from an Instagram live video Warren filmed from her kitchen. In it, she casually drinks a beer and introduces her husband.

Trump earlier this month shared a mock campaign logo for Warren that took aim at her claims to Native American ancestry. The logo read "Warren 1/2020th," a play on "Warren 2020" and the DNA test results released in October that showed Warren had a Native American ancestor several generations ago.

Warren released the DNA information after Trump for months questioned whether she had Native American ancestry, calling her "Pocahontas" at multiple public events.

The Boston Globe reported in October that the results of the test indicate it's possible Warren is anywhere from 1/64th to 1/1,024th Native American.

Warren before the new year announced that she is forming an exploratory committee to run for the White House.
