Elizabeth Warren officially launched her 2020 White House campaign Saturday, joining the growing field of Democratic candidates hoping to unseat incumbent Republican President Donald Trump. Warren made the announcement in Lawrence, Massachusetts at the Everett Mills, the site of the famous Bread and Roses workers strike in 1912.
There were some in Ms Warren's campaign kick-off crowd who expressed concern that her struggles to explain her past claims of Native American heritage could make her vulnerable to attack.
During her campaign launched, she spoke on Trump administration, saying "It won't be enough to just undo the awful acts of this administration".
After Lawrence, Warren is set to travel north to campaign in New Hampshire before flying to Iowa for a three-stop tour across the state on Sunday - her second visit to the Hawkeye State since announcing the formation of an exploratory campaign on New Year's Eve. Warren said. She said that President Trump was a "symptom of what's gone wrong in America", meaning a "rigged system that props up the rich and the powerful and kicks dirt on everyone else".
The senator accused rich people of waging class warfare against the working class for years, and vowed to fight back. In a video released before the event, Warren cited Lawrence's "history of working people coming together to make change, where the fight was hard, the battle was uphill, and where a group of women led the charge for all of us".
She added: "This is the fight of our lives, the fight to build an America where dreams are possible, an America that works for everyone".
If elected, Warren would be the United States' first female president.
He also accused her of "impersonating and disrespecting" Native Americans "to advance her professional career", referring to a DNA test she took to prove her Cherokee ancestry. They're both leaders of the Democrats' liberal vanguard, but some Sanders supporters are still upset she didn't support him during his 2016 primary challenge against Hillary Clinton.
She is the latest Democrat to launch a campaign to become the party's presidential candidate. "But Warren's disastrous handling of her false minority claims and her refusal to apologize until now has everyone, including her own supporters, cringing at her campaign", he said in a statement.
Following her re-election to the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, Warren announced the creation of an exploratory committee for her campaign in the 2020 presidential election. The paper reported Tuesday that Warren listed her race as "American Indian" on her registration card for the State Bar of Texas dated April 1986. "I'm not taking applications from billionaires who want to run a super PAC on my behalf".
"All she's doing is trying to protect us when the story's twisted and, of course as usual, it's gets pushed on things like 'Oh, she said she's Native American.' Like, who cares about that?" she said.
On Saturday, the President Trump's 2020 campaign called her a "fraud" minutes before she made her announcement.
