Sen. Elizabeth Warren creating presidential campaign exploratory committee

The Senator from MA announced on December 31 that she is launching an exploratory committee for a Presidential challenge, putting her name in contention for the Democratic nomination.

"To be able to work hard, play by the same set of rules and take care of the people we love".

"How did we get here?" she asked rhetorically.

She said the middle class was "under attack", highlighting the "broken system" of billionaires, big corporations, and Wall Street finance.

Warren has sparred with Trump over policy such as healthcare, as well as over more personal attacks. "That's one of the many causes of our current reality". The fact that Liz Warren did worse than Hillary Clinton in MA suggests that perhaps she's a below-par candidate.

A former Harvard law professor, Warren has been a vocal advocate of consumer and workers' rights.

To return to the example of Mr. Jones' poll, if he had decided against running for office, he would not have to disclose who paid for his poll or how much he spent on it. "That's a fundamental promise of America", Warren says.

"Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person's ancestors were indigenous to North or South America", Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said in a press release.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., speaks during the first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in July 2016.

At his election-style rallies Trump took to mocking her claim to have some Native American heritage by dubbing her "Pocahontas", a derisive reference to the 17th-century Native American who lived in what is now Virginia. 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. And while she never mentions President Donald Trump by name, both he and his administration officials appear onscreen when Warren talks about an "echo chamber of fear and hate".

The video, which runs for almost four-and-a-half minutes, touches on Warren's family's military tradition, her parents' struggle to provide their children with opportunities and her career fighting for the marginalized in a political system that has been rigged to favor the wealthy.

The move was meant to rebut Trump's taunts of Warren as "Pocahontas". 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?" She ran for Senate in 2012, and beat incumbent Scott Brown. After Trump started referring to her as "Pocahontas", she took a DNA test in October. Instead, her use of a genetic test to prove ethnicity spurred controversy that seemed to blunt any argument she sought to make.
