Elizabeth Warren makes a surprise appearance at Native American luncheon

  • US President Donald Trump has frequently attacked US Senator Elizabeth Warren on Twitter

She is part of a rapidly expanding Democratic White House field that includes Senators Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand and Amy Klobuchar, who announced her bid on Sunday. Hoping to ride the momentum of her Lawrence speech, she heads next to early-voting Iowa and New Hampshire, followed by five other states.

Elizabeth Warren suggested that she may not face Trump in the 2020 elections because he "may not even be a free person" by then.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren: "By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president".

Warren has faced criticism from some Native people for amplifying sensitive issues around tribal citizenship versus ancestry, though she never claimed citizenship in a tribe.

Warren has come under fire for previously having identified herself as Native American and releasing a DNA test showing possible Native American ancestry.

Following Warren's recent apology to the Cherokee Nation, the Washington Post reported Warren identified as "American Indian" on her Texas Bar registration card, which raised fresh questions about whether she used her claim of Native American heritage to advance her career. It said her "socialist ideas" would hurt workers.

Warren told reporters her comments were a reference to the multiple investigations that have shadowed Trump's presidency.

In a tweet, Trump referenced the controversy over her Native American identity, once again using the insulting nickname he's given her.

"I can't go back", she said.

"Every day there is a racist tweet, a hateful tweet - something really dark and ugly", Warren said as she opened an event in Cedar Rapids. Such attacks didn't work for Hillary and they won't work for Warren. I am in that fight all the way. "She's forceful and, let's say it - she persists!"

"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", Parscale said. Warren, who announced she was forming a presidential exploratory committee in December, could see additional documents surface to keep the issue alive, according to the Post.

She pointed to her own rise from humble origins - the daughter of a janitor, she started her schooling in a $50-a-semester community college and ended up teaching law at Harvard - arguing that she can help bring a revival of the American Dream. It makes no matter to her that such investigations were based on lies paid for by Hillary Clinton. "Because that's not only how we win, but that's how we're gonna make the change we need to make".
