Warren described her 2020 presidential campaign run as the "fight of her life".
The suggestion mocks Sen.
Even when Sioux City Democrat Tricia Currans-Sheehan asked her why she submitted to a DNA test after Trump questioned Warren's claim of Native American ancestry, Warren shifted back to economic fairness.
One attendee questioned Warren's decision to take a DNA test a year ago to prove her Native American heritage to President Donald Trump.
"This is an America that is working for those at the top and not anyone else, and that is why I'm here", Warren said at a Friday evening event in Council Bluffs, Iowa, the first of five back-to-back speeches and meet-and-greets with voters planned for the weekend. She said she hopes to talk to the people of Iowa "about what's happening in this country".
She also signalled a potential point of conflict within the Democratic primary field, suggesting billionaire candidates would not represent the party well if they used their personal wealth to help finance their campaigns. But her choice to effectively engage the criticism from the President and others in October with a DNA test irked many Democrats and overshadowed her midterm message. Taking the mic at the crowded Orpheum Theater, she asked Warren why she took a DNA test to prove her Native American ancestry after Trump called it into question.
A spokesperson for Warren announced the move to CNBC three days after the senator revealed that she is forming an exploratory committee ahead of a potential 2020 run, and a day after Warren appeared on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show", where she discussed the importance of Democrats ending their dependence on corporate donors and instead running grassroots campaigns powered by small donations from voters. "We've got to go big on this". "Meanwhile, a September poll indicated that MA voters were more enthusiastic about Patrick making a White House bid than Warren". Warren speak. Ultimately, Stroud couldn't get into the event but Warren came out and spoke to those who were turned away.
Her next stop is Sioux City. "It's about the tens of millions of families across this country who just want a level playing field". "But I still don't know enough about Sen". You know, she's constantly - I would say consciously been distancing herself from this and really just been trying to focus on the economy and how bad things are in the economy and how they can be fixed. Warren's staff logged the names and contact information for those interested in more information.
"Across Iowa and then across America", Warren told a crowd of about 500 in Council Bluffs. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kamala Harris of California, have already been to Iowa, the hires make clear that Warren intends to compete in the state.
She has been one of the most outspoken critics of President Donald Trump, a Republican, but rarely mentioned him by name at her public events on Friday and Saturday.
