Elizabeth Warren is one step closer to a presidential run

Elizabeth Warren,2020 US presidential bid,US president

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has launched an exploratory committee in a first step towards a 2020 presidential campaign.

In a new video, the Massachusetts Democrat, 69, says she is launching an exploratory committee, a process that allows Warren to publicly raise money and hire campaign staffers.

Senator Warren, 69, who has represented MA since 2013, was one of Mr Trump's fiercest critics during the 2016 presidential race and they have continued to exchange biting insults during his presidency.

In the video, Warren also says "America's middle class is under attack" thanks to "corruption" that has benefited "billionaires and big corporations".

Whether you read Truthout often or just share our repulsion with Trump and want to see him held accountable, we urgently need your support. "While Warren is an effective and impactful senator with an important voice nationally, she has become a divisive figure".

Bigger picture: Warren's announcement comes as experts expect the Democratic Party to be filled with a number of contenders who will challenge the party's ideology.

Warren's opening salvo showed she plans to lean into her professorial roots and her persona as a fighter.

To the surprise of no one, Sen. The fact that Liz Warren did worse than Hillary Clinton in MA suggests that perhaps she's a below-par candidate. A professor turned consumer advocate, she was instrumental in the establishment of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a watchdog agency created in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis.

"He raised a daughter who got to be a public school teacher, a law professor and a senator".

They clashed frequently through the 2016 presidential campaign and Trump has cast aspersions on her claim to Native American ancestry, repeatedly referring to her as "Pocahontas".

When Trump offered to donate $1 million to Warren's favorite charity if she took a test proving "you're an Indian", she eventually did so, hoping to put an end to his ridicule. It also tackles one of the most pervasive criticisms of the Democratic Party: that they've abandoned white working and middle-class voters. Warren has always been seen as a potential challenger to President Donald Trump in 2020. The Cherokee Nation's secretary of state called it "inappropriate and wrong" and said it made "a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonouring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven".

With Warren "exploring" - running, in effect - we can expect a large contingent of hopefuls to follow suit soon.

In a video announcing the formation of the committee, Warren focused on her own life in America, and how her mother and father struggled and worked hard to give her opporunities that were unavailable to them.
