Elizabeth Warren: Donald Trump 'may not even be a free person' by 2020

"Here's how I see it: Donald Trump is not the only problem we've got".

The moment marked a notable shift for Warren, who has been reluctant to take on Trump directly by name since she announced her exploratory campaign on New Year's Eve.

The New York Times, a declining and laughable rag filled with fake news, had the audacity to criticize the president for "racism" because he criticized Elizabeth Warren for pretending to be a 'native American'.

Senator Elizabeth Warren targeted President Donald Trump during a campaign speech in Iowa on Sunday when she considered a run against the sitting president and suggested that he "may not even be a free person" in 2020. Warren cemented her 2020 campaign with a call to fight economic inequality and build "an America that works for everyone".

"Are we going to let him use those to divide us?"

The more traction Warren's campaign gains, though, the more it undermines her claim that "the rich and powerful have rigged our political system", writes Ira Stoll. In fact, he may not even be a free person, ' she said.

She also apologized to the Cherokee Nation for muddying the waters about tribal citizenship when she released a DNA test in October purporting to vindicate her longtime claims of Native American ancestry. 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.

Saturday's appearance is part of a series of organizing events that Warren is holding around the country to boost support for the US senator from Massachusetts' presidential campaign in early primary states.

Trump has not been charged with any crimes, but several of his former advisers have been pleaded guilty to a variety of charges. In Cedar Rapids, she said sweeping changes are needed to rebalance an economy that she now favours the wealthy at the expense of middle- and lower-income Americans.

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.

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.
