Sen. Elizabeth Warren Speaks at Native American Event

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren contended that President Donald Trump "may not even be a free person" by the 2020 election.

Warren added that her 2020 bid extends beyond just hoping to replace President Donald Trump.

Warren recounted her decision to go to law school when Amelia was not quite two years old, but said the only day care she could find - with five days before classes were to start - would take the child only if potty-trained. "I've been grateful for her counsel as we've worked together to tackle issues of importance to Indian Country", Warren said.

According to HuffPost, Warren delivered a speech at the National Conference of American Indians, during which she did not address the aforementioned controversy - which grew larger last week when it was discovered she wrote "Native American" on a State Bar of Texas application in 1986.

"Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President", Trump tweeted.

Warren officially launched her campaign in MA on Saturday, where she issued a challenge to the super wealthy and called Trump "just the latest and most extreme symptom of what's gone wrong in America".

Cardi B says she feels anxiety ahead of the Grammys
The annual Grammy Awards has always been the most talked about night in the music industry; and for good reason. Her most recent Grammy win was back in 2014, when her album Girl on Fire took home the award for best R&B album.

Her fake news media allies celebrated the results anyway and claimed she turned the tables on Trump.

Warren came under fire past year for taking a DNA test to demonstrate her Native American ancestry. "See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!" the President tweeted on Saturday.

Warren has faced strong criticism for her claims of Native American ancestry, especially from tribal leaders who have ripped her attempts to confirm that she has some Native American ancestry via a DNA test as a "mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring tribal governments and their citizens". Still, about as many Democrats said they'd be at least somewhat likely to support Warren as said the same of Harris or Sanders.

Warren has made a decision to ignore what she called Trump's "every day efforts to divide and distract", a campaign spokesperson told CNN. "In fact, he may not even be a free person", Warren told an audience at a campaign event on Sunday in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

In a brief statement with the newspaper, Warren once again apologized for claiming Native American heritage.

Warren has said the story of Pocahontas long has "been taken away by powerful people who twisted it to serve their own purposes". Cory Booker of New Jersey, in his first trip to Iowa as a presidential candidate, suggested in passing Saturday that if he won the Democratic nomination, he was not certain he would face Trump in the general election.
