Trump mocks Elizabeth Warren again over Native American heritage

  • Watch: Democrat Elizabeth Warren releases powerful video announcing 2020 US presidential bid

"It's just way early". With her five-city campaign swing on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, as well as the hiring of four staffers who know the state well, Warren appears to be betting she can plant her flag and shape the race even before other top candidates are officially in. "Get in now, start to build your network in Iowa".

Politico noted Warren had launched an exploratory committee on New Year's Eve. Her prospective presidential opponents are learning how savvy she is, at least when it comes to campaign cash. Activists in New Hampshire, the Democratic Party's first 2020 primary state, said they have concerns about her running for president.

"It's just sort of trying too hard ... and people have pretty good radar for that sort of thing", Berkovitz said. "I want to have a chance to visit with people about how Washington can work better for them on student loans, on investments in infrastructure".

The attacks against Warren's ethnicity have circulated in conservative circles for some time, with many mocking her for allegedly being less Native American than she claims to be.

She's one of what is expected to be a crowded field of Democratic contenders hoping to retake the White House from Republican President Donald Trump in 2020.

"I'm here to ask every one of you to be a part of this", Warren said.

"It's important for everybody this year". But this trip offers the first glimpse of what the likely Democratic presidential candidate will look like in that role.

While the fire was soon extinguished, nobody seemed to be more heartbroken than Lexington's boys in blue. Given that fact, police posted some "emotional" pictures "mourning" the loss of the truck.

"We'll see how she does". Elizabeth Warren pledged her salary to HIAS, the Jewish immigration advocacy group, as long as the government is shut down. "That gives her a real upside".

Warren did not find it as humorous as the 46,000 people who retweeted it did. The results also proved she is not Native American herself.

Warren told reporters in response to the meme that the president should instead spend "his time getting the government back open".

Eliason's proposed attempt at humor with Warren might not go over well. That underscores two challenges for Warren this weekend: She is not coming in as an obvious front-runner, and she might be compared, in voters' minds, to the idealized versions of other campaigns that have yet to take shape.

During a sit-down interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, the Massachusetts Democrat, who said she was forming a presidential exploratory committee on the last day of 2018, accused Trump of pushing policy that benefit the rich and the powerful over middle-class Americans. "I think that's how most Democrats feel, have another election and see what we can get, see if we can fix some problems", she said. 'Hold on a second - I'm gonna get me a beer, ' she said, stepping out of frame.

Trump scoffed at the test - calling it "a fraud" - and at Warren's candidacy.
