Elizabeth Warren makes key 2020 hires ahead of first Iowa trip

Donald Trump and Elizabeth Warren

Warren launched her bid for the presidency in the waning days of 2018. He noted the county bordering his to the east is Pocahontas County and said he is considering bringing it up to Warren to get a laugh. I think that's how most Democrats feel, have another election and see what we can get, see if we can fix some problems. "Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie and they enlisted politicians to cut them a fatter slice", said the senator from MA, who has always been a vocal critic of big businesses and corporations.

And, in the process of all this political stuff getting put back into action, Donald Trump saw fit to come forth and comment on Elizabeth Warren's upcoming presidential campaign.

"She recently ran for her Senate seat [in November] against Geoff Diehl - and if you actually watched the debates, [he] just wiped the floor with her", he states.

Well she did, and the whole thing was hell for Native Americans, but Warren is moving on, and alas, Trump isn't. So, I'm in this fight all the way.

Warren plans to start her swing through Iowa on Friday with a stop at an organizing event in Council Bluffs followed by similar events on Saturday in Sioux City and Des Moines and a roundtable discussion in Storm Lake.

For someone known for her ability to rouse crowds with her takedowns of Wall Street and Trump, Warren ignited her audience in Iowa by promising, in her trademark style, to "persist".

Warren's mantra has been that she wants to make changes to the federal government that now "works great for the wealthy and the well-connected" but leaves millions of other Americans out in the cold.

She dodged questions from reporters about Trump and her DNA test as she gave her first news conference.

"Is this gonna be a Democratic primary that truly is a grassroots movement that is funded by the grassroots, that's done by grassroots volunteers or is this gonna be something that is just one more plaything that billionaires can buy?" she posed.

Warren fundraised this week off a Politico story that was panned by progressives for wondering if she could overcome being "written off as too unlikable". Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, another likely 2020 presidential contender. The first Democratic presidential debate is this June, however.
