Warren continued. "Are we going to let him use those to divide us?"
Warren officially launched her presidential campaign on Saturday in her home state of MA at a mill site where largely immigrant and female factory workers went on strike in 1912 to call attention to the wealthy power brokers who "have been waging a class warfare against hardworking people for decades", Warren said in her speech.
"Elizabeth Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career, and the people of MA she deceived to get elected", campaign manager Brad Parscale 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".
Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has officially launched her 2020 presidential campaign, said that President Donald Trump might be unable to finish his term by the time Election Day comes next year. "And what are we, as candidates, as activists, the press, going to do about it?"
Warren came under fire a year ago for taking a DNA test to demonstrate her Native American ancestry.
But she's largely avoided talking about Trump since she began testing the waters for a presidential campaign more than a month ago, hewing more closely to the populist economic message that has long made her a favorite of liberals.
Warren herself may "not be a free person" soon.
At the event in Cedar Rapids earlier on Sunday, Warren lamented that the country is in a "dangerous moment", and that, "what happens in 2020 is going to determine the direction of our nation, the direction of our people". Warren elaborated on those comments to reporters at an event in Iowa City, pointing to the ongoing investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election by special counsel Robert Mueller.
Warren has come under fire for previously having identified herself as Native American and releasing a DNA test showing possible Native American ancestry.
In her announcement speech Saturday, Warren established the theme of her campaign: America is "rigged" against the middle class, lower classes, minorities - everybody but the 1%.
Voters in Cedar Rapids did not ask Warren about the controversy during a question-and-answer session, focusing instead on her stances on issues including tariffs and student loan debt.
