Elizabeth Warren makes big move toward 2020 US presidential run

Elizabeth Warren in November after he reelection to the Senate

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) announced on Monday that she is forming a 2020 exploratory committee for president.

According to The New York Times, Warren launching her presidential exploratory committee means she's starting to raise funds and hire people for major positions on her campaign. "We got a real opportunity to build something", Warren says.

She then asserts that "billionaires and big corporations" are responsible because they "decided they wanted more of the pie, and they enlisted politicians to cut them a fatter slice".

But, Warren said, regular people in American faced more hard challenges in 2018.

To the surprise of no one, Sen. A flurry of announcements similar to Warren's could be coming this winter, and to accommodate what is expected to be a historically large field the Democratic National Committee announced before Christmas that they will hold a least a dozen debates in 2019 and 2020.

Warren released a video on her Twitter account explaining her motivation to move towards a presidential candidacy. In an ominous sign for a candidate who was once considered a possible favorite for the nod, the vast majority of Democratic commentary in response to Warren's announcement has taken the tone of a bored yawn.

Pelosi, During Government Shutdown, Is Vacationing at Hawaii Resort
The shutdown is idling hundreds of thousands of federal workers and beginning to pinch citizens who count on some public services. Instead, the Democratic House leader was recognized at a luxury resort in Hawaii on Thursday.

"I'm holding every random person who yelled at me in 2016 to their word that they'd vote for a woman if it was Elizabeth Warren".

A darling of the far-left, Warren has come under fire for embellishing her heritage and was recently embarrassed after DNA testing showed that she was only 1/1024 Native American.

Since her re-election to the Senate in November, Warren has made hundreds of calls to political grassroots leaders in the early states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada, the source said.

Warren has often described spending her Oklahoma upbringing "on the ragged edge of the middle class". But by definition, a politician who has formed an exploratory committee is not yet a candidate for president. The clip notes that she entered politics as a major force behind the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, an agency created to serve as a watchdog over the financial industry, but whose activities have been dramatically curbed by the Trump administration. Even they don't want her. After Trump started referring to her as "Pocahontas", she took a DNA test in October. But it also risks emphasizing anger at a time when Democrats are divided over whether they instead should seek out a more optimistic and unifying nominee.

First elected to the Senate in 2012, Warren has been a reliably liberal voice, clashing not only with conservatives but with fellow Democrats in her opposition to financial deregulation. The Cherokee Nation said Warren was making a mockery out of DNA tests and was "undermining tribal interests".
