Banking bill has nothing for Americans, Warren says

  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren responded to President Trump's latest attack by bringing up native women who are victims of sexual violence

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, said repeatedly Sunday that she is not running for president in 2020, but demurred when asked if she would serve the full six years if reelected in November.

Warren's comments came one day after Trump again derided her as "Pocahontas" at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, referring to her having claimed Cherokee and Delaware Indian heritage. Asked if she will, Warren instead talked about her family and Native American issues.

Last week, an editorial in the Berkshire Eagle called on the senior senator from MA to take a DNA test to finally put the issue to rest, stating she has "nothing to lose but her Achilles' heel". But she's also been dogged by the allegation that she has claimed Native American ancestry to advance her academic career. That's where I'm going to stay focused. "I know who I am because of what my mother and my father told me, what my grandmother and my grandfather told me, what all my aunts and uncles told me and my brothers". That doesn't rule out that she won't eventually run for president, and her interviewer, CNN's Jim Acosta, should have noticed this and nailed her down as to whether she WILL run for president.

Michael Warren from the Weekly Standard said the senator appears to be eyeing a presidential run without being sure it is the right time. 'My mother and daddy were born and raised in Oklahoma. "And never used it for anything, never got any benefit out of it anywhere", she said.

While the senator said she never used her heritage claim to get ahead, she has been found listed as minority faculty in university directories.

"I am not running for president in 2020", is what she said.

"I know there's a lot of anxiety particularly on the Democratic side about how we are going to deal with Donald Trump in 2020", she added. She wanted to be elected to another term as Senator and both her Republican opponent and the NY media were asking if she would finish her term. Saying, "I am not running" is a statement in the present tense and simply means that she's not running today.

'That is just fundamentally wrong. "More than half of all native women have been the victims of sexual violence", she said. We need to bring some attention to it and we need to put some resources on it.
