Elizabeth Warren officially launches 2020 presidential campaign - live updates
Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., formally announced her candidacy for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination on Saturday, saying she wants to fight for "an America that works for everyone".
Despite such criticism, several MA lawmakers joined Warren for her Lawrence 2020 campaign launch, including U.S. Reps.
"This is the fight of our lives", she said. "And that is why I stand here today: to declare that I am a candidate for President of the United States of America".
In the announcement, she called President Trump "the latest - and most extreme - symptom of what's gone wrong in America". "Separating a momma from a baby does not make this country safer", Warren said in an interview with CNN last summer, a message she has returned to during her time on the campaign trail.
"The American people will reject her dishonest campaign and socialist ideas like the Green New Deal, that will raise taxes, kill jobs and crush America's middle-class", Mr Trump's campaign manager Brad Pascale wrote.
A Monmouth University poll showed Warren get a boost in national support after she announced her exploratory campaign at the end of a year ago.
Warren has often spoken of how her parents eloped after her father's family disapproved of his future wife's Native American lineage, but Warren for years could never produce documentation to bolster her claims.
To no surprise, Warren drew sharp contrasts between herself and President Donald Trump, painting the president as a cancerous disease, while promoting her progressive agenda as the anecdote America desperately needs. He is expected to focus heavily on economic issues and detail Warren's efforts in that space, arguing that her record sets her apart. Tribal activists, who were sharply critical over DNA test and earlier refusal to address the harm it might have done to their interests, have mostly welcomed her apologies.
When she was 12, her 50-year-old father suffered a near fatal heart attack and their family almost lost their home.
Joan Vennochi ("Warren can't beat Trump") is assisting the GOP in its effort to tear down Elizabeth Warren, whom the Republicans probably know may be the most formidable opponent to President Trump in 2020.
Warren and the other women running so far, among whom are Senators Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand, are hoping to build on the success of women candidates who played a significant role in Democrats regaining control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November's congressional elections.
Watch the announcement in the media player above. She laid out the vision for her presidency in the video as one in which democracy and our economy "work for all of us".
"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. And families of color face a path that is steeper and rockier.
Born and raised in Oklahoma, the 69-year-old is a graduate of the University of Houston and Rutgers Law School.
Warren is a staunch consumer advocate who played a key role in the establishment of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau during the Obama administration.
