Elizabeth Warren makes it official: She's running for president

Sherrod Brown, planned to be in New Hampshire on Saturday.

Warren was introduced on Saturday by Representative Joe Kennedy III, grandson of former U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy and part of the new generation of the most prominent Democratic family in MA and arguably the U.S.

Closing the gap between the country's rich and poor, a pursuit of Warren's that dates back to her time as a Harvard law professor, is set to be a dominant theme of her campaign. Elizabeth Warren is expected to launch her presidential campaign in one of New England's poorest and most heavily Latino communities.

In 1912, textile workers in Lawrence, many of them immigrant women, walked off the job and went on strike to protest wage cuts. Not even a common language.

"Hard-working people are up against a small group that holds far too much power, not just in our economy, but also in our democracy". "We are here to say enough is enough".

She said Trump is not the cause of what is broken in America, just the latest symptom. This is the fight of our lives, the fight to build an America where dreams are possible, an America that works for everyone.

I think Warren would make a great president - she is a real fighter for the working people of our nation.

The 69-year-old from the U.S. state of MA has already become a main target of Trump, who has dubbed Warren "Pocahontas" for previously identifying herself as a Native American, a controversy that has plagued the run-up to her candidacy.

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.

Weaving specific policy prescriptions into her remarks, from Medicare for All to the elimination of Washington "lobbying as we know it", Warren avoided taking direct jabs at President Donald Trump.

Warren's 2020 announcement on Saturday follows a week in which she's taken major heat after a form years ago for the Texas bar came to light. Warren apologized to leaders of the Cherokee Nation earlier this month.

Elizabeth Warren essentially has been disqualified from a presidential run by virtue of her claim, in 1986, to Native American race on her Texas bar registration card. "I am in that fight all the way", she told supporters in Lawrence, Mass. A statement from his campaign manager Brad Parscale said, "The American people will reject her dishonest campaign". "Only under President Trump's leadership will America continue to grow safer, secure and more prosperous". "But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted".

Warren joins a growing list of Democrats kicking off their White House bid, including fellow Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker. Kirsten Gillibrand has also announced an exploratory committee.

In a video announcing the exploratory committee released on social media on December 31, Warren said she's running in order to take a stand for middle-class Americans. She recently unveiled a proposal that pushes the frontier to a new place: directly taxing the very rich.
