Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) appears to be dropping hints about a possible 2020 presidential run against President Donald Trump.
While speaking at the Netroots Nation convention in New Orleans, Warren addressed what she calls the politics of division that was created by the Trump administration. Then she claimed the she’s not afraid to be an underdog, Fox News reported.
“Frankly it might be the one thing that Donald Trump is really good at, that and kissing up to two-bit dictators,” Warren said Friday, as she blew a kiss into the air.
Then she started talking about saving the democracy.
“I believe that together we can save democracy....It won’t be easy,” Warren reportedly said. “We’re going to have to fight uphill. Me? I’m going up that hill. And I hope you are, too.”
During a separate appearance in New Orleans, Warren told Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Cedric Richmond at Dillard University that Trump’s presidency has caused her to reconsider her plan to not run in 2016.
“Two words: Donald Trump,” Warren said.
She went on to tell the audience that midterm elections are the first fight for Democrats in their quest to try to take away the GOP’s control of Congress.
Trump has needled Warren about her heritage by calling her "Pocahontas" and saying she has no proof that she is Native American.
In March, Warren pledged to mention sexual violence against Native American women every time the president called her the name, which she categorizes as a racial slur.
Warren has asserted that she is Native American multiple times, but has refused to take a DNA test at the urging of Republicans.
She previously told Fox News it is a part of who she is and no one can take it away. Warren has said that her mother told her she is part Native American and she simply regards it has part of her heritage and has never benefited from it.
