Warren is the most prominent Democrat yet to make a move toward a presidential bid and has always been a favorite target of President Donald Trump. She said American families were "under attack from every direction", due to a government that's "bought and paid for by a bunch of billionaires and giant corporations that think they get to dictate the rules". After she delivered a sermonette on the need for stricter financial regulation during a 2010 appearance on The Daily Show, the show's host, Jon Stewart, famously asked her, "Can I kiss you?"
"I'm in this fight for hard-working families".
"Senator Elizabeth Warren's formal entrance into the 2020 race for president today helps launch what we believe will be a vibrant discussion of bold, inclusive populist ideas in the Democratic primary", Democracy for America Executive Director Charles Chamberlaine said in a statement provided to LifeZette. She also blasted how Washington, D.C. works well for the pharmaceutical companies instead of the patients.
Warren would also be up against many more possible candidates, such as Sens.
But Warren stands out for having already built the framework of a serious campaign, with a staff of more than 70 people working in several key states, and $12.5 million left in her coffers from her successful re-election effort.
The impact of a Warren presidency might not particularly bode well for the crypto industry, with the Democratic politician not seeming to be a fan of digital assets and initial coin offerings (ICOs) in particular.
Many of Warren's policy positions have focused on economic inequality.
Warren's criticism of Trump's trade policies, erosion of consumer protections, and openness to authoritarian regimes has drawn his attention, and his disdain.
"Well, that I don't know", Trump answered.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was first elected in 2012. "Warren has a lot of convincing to do", adding the same is true of many other Democratic contenders.
"The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will be a watchdog for the American consumer, charged with enforcing the toughest financial protections in history".
Warren will begin campaigning soon in some of the states with early presidential nominating contests, a person familiar with her plans said. Rumors about her 2020 prospects have been circulating for years now, but it became semi-official on Monday morning. She resisted a push from some liberal activists to run for president in 2016. She married at age 19 and moved to Texas, where she finished her undergraduate studies at the University of Houston.
"America's middle class is under attack", said a video message from Warren, who has represented MA in the Senate since 2013.
"The country will realize that after trying every kind of guy, it's time to let a woman clean up the mess", said Marsh, the Boston-based Democratic consultant.
