Elizabeth Warren officially launches 2020 presidential campaign

Ms Warren's crossover into politics began with her opposing what turned into a 2005 act limiting bankruptcy access for individuals. Warren said she wrote that based on stories her family told about their heritage.

He launched his case with this words: "I will show you how together we will defeat George Bush next November".

The announcement came after a hard week for Warren.

She has been forced to apologise for claiming on several occasions in her early political career that she was of Native American descent.

The entire saga - from Trump's derogatory nickname for her, to the controversial release of her DNA test, to her Texas state bar registration - has Democrats anxious the claims to Native American ancestry will weigh on Warren as the missing e-mails did on Hillary Clinton's campaign.

"It won't be enough just to undo the bad acts of this administration", Mrs. Warren said. "We can't afford to just tinker around the edges - a tax credit here, a regulation there". Elizabeth Warren of MA on Saturday officially kicked off her presidential campaign, telling voters that she plans to bring "big structural change" that curbs the power of the wealthy and levels the playing field for working-class Americans. The fight to build an America where dreams are possible, an America that works for everyone. In her view, Trump is an "extreme symptom of what's gone wrong in America".

"I like her anger", said Christiane Alsop, who has donated to Warren's previous campaigns and is backing her presidential bid. "Warren has left herself open on a couple fronts to pile on".

But so far, Warren has not offered a unique argument as to why she can best beat Trump.

Others anxious that the country isn't ready for a female president.

Callahan, who noted that he's looking at other progressive candidates, said he'd like to see White House hopefuls make gun control, student loans, income inequality and LGBTQ issues top priorities in 2020.

Even before she had taken to the stage, President Donald Trump's 2020 campaign team had responded calling her a fraud.

The 69-year-old from the USA state of MA has already become a main target of Trump, who has dubbed Warren "Pocahontas" for previously identifying herself as a Native American, a controversy that has plagued the run-up to her candidacy. The Green New Deal, supported by an array of Democrats, is a sweeping environmental initiative.

Despite their similarities, Warren and Sanders have taken somewhat divergent paths in recent months as they prepare for the primary. "There will be plenty of doubters and cowards and armchair critics this time around", Warren said.

"All she's doing is trying to protect us when the story's twisted and, of course as usual, it's gets pushed on things like 'Oh, she said she's Native American.' Like, who cares about that?" she said. Day that she was surpassing an exploratory committee and seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidency, as did New Jersey Democratic Sen.
