US Senator Elizabeth Warren officially launches 2020 presidential bid

US Senator Elizabeth Warren has officially launched her 2020 presidential bid.

The Massachusetts Democrat had previously announced an ‘exploratory committee’ – a key first step for many presidential candidates.

However, with a year to go until the first primary votes, she now formally announced her plans to run.

She joins several of her Senate colleagues who’ve already announced their own presidential bids – including Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand.

Amy Klobuchar, another Democratic senator widely expected to join the race, has said she has a ‘big announcement’ to make later today.

Senator Warren is one of the most high-profile members of the upper house in Congress, and a prominent progressive in the Democratic party.

She has also been a frequent and outspoken critic of Donald Trump.

However, launching her bid yesterday, she stressed that she’s running on a much broader platform than simply opposing the current president.

She explained: “[Trump] is just the latest and most extreme symptom of what’s gone wrong in America … a product of a rigged system that props up the rich and powerful, and kicks dirt on everyone else. “

Trump himself has frequently targeted Warren – in particular focusing on her controversial claims of Native American heritage.

The US President took to Twitter to again mock the senator as she formally launched her presidential bid:

Many commentators took to social media to criticize President Trump for the tweet, drawing attention to the ‘trail’ punchline.

They pointed to the Trail of Tears – a ‘forced relocation’ of Native Americans in the US during the 1800s that left thousands of indigenous people dead.
