Where you can spend a Saturday morning with Elizabeth Warren in SC

Sen. Elizabeth Warren D-Mass. announced her 2020 presidential bid Saturday. File

"Every day there is a racist tweet, a hateful tweet - something really dark and ugly", she said.

The joke played on the hot water Warren found herself in for exaggerating her Native American ancestry over the years. "Are we going to let him use those to divide us?" the Senator questioned during her speech as referring to Trump.

By the time we get to 2020 Donald Trump may not even be the President. "See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!" the President tweeted on Saturday.

"What happens in 2020 is going to determine the direction of our nation, the direction of our people", she said, noting that America is experiencing a "dangerous moment".

The Massachusetts presidential candidate made the comments on Sunday during her first full day campaign stop in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, drawing cheers from the audience in attendance.

Warren launched her own controversy by claiming she's Native American. Warren said those richest families, "wanted to be even richer, and they didn't care who got hurt".

"If we go down that path, we're going to need to help pull this country together and have as many people as possible understand it was a legitimate process based on facts", she said.

First, Warren said she would take on "corruption" in Washington, citing an ethics bill to ban lobbying by former lawmakers, presidents and top appointees, with additional provisions that propose a requirement that presidents make their tax returns public and sell off companies to avoid conflicts of interest, NBC News reported.

Trump's re-election campaign issued a dismissive statement ahead of Warren's announcement, saying she had "been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career".

Warren's past battles with Wall Street have brought her a large following, and her campaign team has drawn the grudging respect of its rivals.

The president's ability to create controversies and drive debate poses a challenge for Warren and other Democrats.

"4,000 Native Americans died on the Trail of Tears due to forced relocations under the Andrew Jackson administration".

In October, Warren released what she said were her DNA test results in a failed attempt to bolster her prior claims of Native American heritage.

She spoke of "too little accountability for the rich, too little opportunity for everyone else".

"The chief and secretary of state appreciate that she has reaffirmed that she is not a Cherokee Nation citizen or a citizen of any tribal nation", tribe spokeswoman Julie Hubbard told the New York Times.
