Elizabeth Warren Makes 2020 Presidential Run Official

Senator Elizabeth Warren to formally launch 2020 presidential campaign

He is merely "a product of a rigged system that props up the rich and powerful and kicks dirt on everyone else".

"This is the fight of our lives, the fight to build an America where dreams are possible - an America that works for everyone", she said.

"I can't go back", Warren told the Post. "And that is why I stand here today - to declare that I am a candidate for president of the United States".

Trump refers to Warren as "Pocahontas", a slur referencing accusations that she falsely claimed Native American ancestry in a Harvard directory.

She used the backdrop to highlight what she sees as the plight of an American working class that has been left behind by rapacious big business and indifferent government.

The Cherokee Nation criticized Warren's announcement previous year, saying her use of a DNA test is "useless" for determining tribal citizenship and that using DNA analysis to determine connection to any tribal nation is "inappropriate and wrong". An attempt by Warren to put the episode behind her by releasing a DNA test indicating a sliver of Native ancestry backfired after drawing criticism from Native American advocacy groups.

"All I know is, during this time period, this is consistent with what I did because it was based on my understanding from my family's stories, but family stories are not the same as tribal citizenship", Warren said.

"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.

Warren's announcement makes her the eighth Democrat officially running for president, joining the likes of Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, Senator Kamala Harris of California, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, former Congressman John Delaney of Maryland, Spiritual author Marianne Williamson of Texas and businessman Andrew Yang of NY. Kirsten Gillibrand has also announced an exploratory committee. Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar, expected to jump in soon.

Watch the announcement in the media player above.

But it is the story of Warren's family that also had the 2020 candidate facing fresh questions about her credibility this week. "People who will say it's "extreme" or "radical" to demand an America where every family has some economic security and every kid has a real opportunity to succeed".

Even CNN admits that Warren's path to the White House has become a lot harder since the DNA fiasco blew up last October.

At the MA event, Warren added some biographical elements, describing herself, as a young mother entering law school, having to quickly toilet-train her toddler so she could leave the child at a day-care center while she attended classes.

Her first husband, Jim Warren - to whom she was married during the period she described, from 1968 to 1978, and with whom she has two children - worked as NASA mathematician.
