Sen. Elizabeth Warren Isn't Running For President in 2020

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA says she has no intention of running for president in 2020, but she also is leaving herself room to reconsider.

Warren added that while the issue has continued to pop up in her 2018 re-election bid, she doesn't see it as being a major concern to most MA voters.

Warren, during an interview on WGBY-TV's "Connecting Point", largely dismissed a Berkshire Eagle editorial's call for her to "take the spit test" and set the record straight on whether or not she has Native American ancestry. "It's a part of me, and nobody's going to take that part of me away".

"Look, this is what I was trying to tell you", Warren responded. Elizabeth Warren of MA says she has no intention of running for president in 2020, but she also is leaving herself room to reconsider.

"I am in this fight to retain my Senate seat in 2018", Warren said. At a Saturday rally in Pennsylvania to boost GOP special election candidate Rick Saccone, Trump alluded to a potential run by Warren, saying that "ratings" for news media companies would go down if she or Senator Bernie Sanders ran on the Democratic ticket. Warren and the National Congress of American Indians consider it a racial slur when used as shorthand for Native Americans.




Warren said she also is concerned Trump's lack of staffing and expertise at the State Department could undercut his planned meeting with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un.

Trump's tariffs, which he announced last Thursday, were met with swift opposition from numerous president's fellow Republicans who say they will harm the economy. Her parents, she said, fell in love as teenagers in Oklahoma and eloped because her mother's Native American heritage made her father's family "bitterly opposed" to the union. "I understand that tribal membership is determined by tribes - and only by tribes", Warren said, adding that she never used her heritage to advance her career.

"I think that our trade deals have been negotiated for a very, very long time now to benefit large, multinational corporations, not to benefit the American worker", she said.

"But I want to make something else clear, too: My parents were real people", she said.
