Warren: Trump 'May Not Even Be a Free Person' in 2020

Elizabeth Warren

- President Trump wasted little time Saturday before needling newly declared presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren over her controversial efforts to align herself with Native Americans.

By entering the 2020 race, Warren joined what is expected to be a very crowded list of candidates that already includes California Sen.

Warren formally launched her White House bid Saturday in MA, grounding her campaign in the populist calls to combat economic inequality that have long made her a favourite of liberals.

Sheri Clark Nadell, a ME resident who traveled to Warren's New Hampshire event, said that while she likes Sanders and voted for him in his previous campaign, she is less inclined to do so now.

Warren officially launched her campaign in MA on Saturday, where she issued a challenge to the super wealthy and called Trump "just the latest and most extreme symptom of what's gone wrong in America".

She referenced her previous apology call to a tribal chief about her earlier public release of a DNA test that showed a tiny fraction of native American blood. For her part, Warren sought to address the controversy again previous year when she took a DNA test.

Trump's re-election campaign issued a dismissive statement ahead of Warren's announcement, saying she had "been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career". "She's forceful and, let's say it - she persists!"

"I'm not sure, at this point, that he could win", Nadell said.

When asked to elaborate, Warren said: "Come on, how many investigations are there now?"

The 69-year-old senator has made the protection of middle-class rights the central pillar of her political message. I am in that fight all the way.

Trump has frequently taken digs at the senator by calling her Pocahontas, a reference to the native woman who lived in present-day Virginia in the 1600s and agreed to marry an English colonist to help ensure peace and protect her people.

Brenda Toineeta Pipestem, a former NIWRC board member and now a tribal Supreme Court justice said it is "important" the native community show their support for Warren, calling her an ally. She also supports universal health care. "The fight to build an America where dreams are possible, an America that works for everyone".

Warren tried in her speech to appeal to a broad ethnic coalition, saying, "We must not allow those with power to weaponize hatred and bigotry to divide us".

The Democrat Senator said her nation was in a "dangerous situation".
