Warren tests anti-corruption theme to cheers in Iowa debut

President Trump Suggests a Slogan for Warren's 2020 Campaign

Some of the questions she answered dealt with topics such as affordable housing, corporate power and preparing for 2020 presidential debates.

Warren's trip - her first to Iowa since 2014 - caps a week in which she took significant steps to formalise her 2020 efforts by launching a presidential exploratory committee and hiring a team of veteran Iowa staffers.

Warren has been an emerging national figure for more than a decade as an advocate for consumer protection, now a senator and a regular target of President Donald Trump. "Tribes, and only tribes, determine tribal citizenship, and I respect that difference". I'm not a citizen of a tribe. However, indigenous tribes quickly slammed the results as a stunt and said it is not acceptable to demonstrate "tribal affiliation".

'I can't stop Donald Trump from what he's going to do, ' Warren said.

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is kicking off her presidential run this weekend with a swing through the early voting state of Iowa.

The controversy with Warren stems back to her early claims of having a Native American ancestor, one that she has stuck by despite critics accusing her of either exaggerating or outright fabricating those assertions.

While Warren has received backlash within the party for her handling of the DNA test, some other voters who came to see her in Iowa say her overall approach and message competes with the president's.

She has been spending big on social media advertising and, in a classic sign of an impending presidential run, is about to release a memoir.

Nevertheless, Warren persisted in not discussing Trump by name unless specifically asked about him, although she got in a dig when asked about crop prices by an Iowa farmer.

Warren became emotional as she described her frustration at witnessing the Trump administration's border security policies.

Iowa is also a place where people watching agricultural commodities such as soybeans and hogs fall under President Trump's tariffs may take a shine to Warren's trademark message of economic populism. "But what I can do is I can be in this fight for all of our families". "I think that Warren has great ideas about how to get us out of that".

Joe Rospars, who led former President Obama's digital strategy in both 2008 and 2012, has joined Warren's newly launched presidential exploratory committee in a senior capacity, according to two sources familiar with staffing. "Today a minimum wage job will not keep a momma and a baby out of poverty".

"It reminds us of when we were growing up", said Ed Slattery, a retiree from Des Moines.

"What I want to see is what the field's going to look like, and how these individuals do in putting together outreach around the state", said Matt McCoy, a former Democratic state senator and current Polk County supervisor, adding that Warren had called him late a year ago as she laid the groundwork for her presidential announcement.

In an apparent attempt to set the record straight, Warren acknowledged that she was not a minority.

Warren also has some other issues.

But her decision in 2020, Wertz said, would turn on more concrete questions.

"All three of my brothers still live in Oklahoma". "We gotta stay focused on what matters to us". Price also pointed to the fact that Iowa's smaller population lends itself to "retail politics", meaning voters get a chance to meet candidates in church basements, coffee shops and school auditoriums. "I think she's guilty of claiming she's been American Indian, but had no proof ... and then using it ... for political reasons ... that was all wrong but she did that this whole time". "I'm in this fight because it's been the fight of my lifetime".
