Warren: Trump 'May Not Even Be a Free Person' in 2020

Ms Warren has been criticised for her past claim to Native American heritage

She called President Donald Trump "the product of a rigged system that props up the rich and powerful and kicks dirt on everyone else".

"Basically what she is saying is that Trump is not the disease but the symptoms".

Warren's comments come after President Trump took a jab at her on Twitter shortly after she announced her presidential campaign. "Are we going to let him use those to divide us?"

"Elizabeth Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career, and the people of MA she deceived to get elected", campaign manager Brad Parscale said."The American people will reject her dishonest campaign and socialist ideas like the Green New Deal, that will raise taxes, kill jobs and crush America's middle-class". "Because that's not only how we win, but that's how we're gonna make the change we need to make".

Warren came under fire past year for taking a DNA test to demonstrate her Native American ancestry.

The Trail of Tears was a string of forced relocations of Native Americans from their ancestral lands in the American southeast to reservations in Oklahoma under President Andrew Jackson following the Indian Removal Act of 1830, during which, thousands perished from hunger, disease and exposure before they arrived. "See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!" She took a DNA test to prove she was part Indian, but her Indian genes proved vanishingly small. It was a fitting backdrop for the longtime consumer advocate to advance her platform of taking a pickaxe to Wall Street.

Warren's campaign wouldn't say what the senator believes Trump was referencing.

U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris of California also is expected to make her second campaign appearance in SC this weekend. Cory Booker, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro.

In Cedar Rapids on Sunday, Warren lamented that the country is in a "dangerous moment" and that "what happens in 2020 is going to determine the direction of our nation, the direction of our people". The Massachusetts senator argued that Democrats should resist the urge to respond to "a racist tweet, a hateful tweet, something really dark and ugly" when choosing whether or not to spar with Trump. "What are we as candidates, as activists, as the press, going to do about it?"
