Democratic senator Elizabeth Warren has made her bid for the United States presidency official, during a 44-minute speech in sub-zero temperatures. On Saturday, she officially threw her hat into the ring during a a rally in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) - introduced Warren Saturday and revealed his endorsement of Warren.

Warren introduced her campaign by telling the story of Lawrence, where laborers - many of whom were immigrants - toiled under awful working conditions.

She pointedly said of President Donald Trump, "The man in the White House is not the cause of what is broken".

In the announcement, she called President Trump "the latest - and most extreme - symptom of what's gone wrong in America".

The senator accused rich people of waging class warfare against the working class for years, and vowed to fight back.

The 69-year-old from the U.S. state of MA has already become a main target of Trump, who has dubbed Warren "Pocahontas" for previously identifying herself as a Native American, a controversy that has plagued the run-up to her candidacy.

"This is the fight of our lives".

The Democratic Party has many alternatives to Warren for the 2020 presidential race.

He also accused her of "impersonating and disrespecting" Native Americans "to advance her professional career", referring to a DNA test she took to prove her Cherokee ancestry.

In a way, it's nearly like a sleeper cell: You just have to turn your brain off and rely on your training to kick in by instinct. That's how I was thinking actually. "I'm aware of all the work I put in". "You just need to get used to the attention as well".

Standing against the backdrop of Lawrence's Everett Mills - the site of the "Bread and Roses" labor strike - the Massachusetts Democrat laid out her vision for an America that prioritizes working and middle-class people over the wealthy and well-connected.

"And she shouldn't presume that the scrutiny of her past is going to end as she formally launches her presidential campaign".

Ms Warren has always been a star in the progressive left, however, and she has already built a formidable nationwide campaign.

Warren faced renewed criticism this week over her controversial Native American heritage claims after the Washington Post reported that she listed her race as "American Indian" on a Texas State Bar registration card in 1986. Viewed alongside a new proposal from Sanders to hike the estate tax, Warren has positioned herself at the center of the progressive push to reduce corporate influence in Washington and economic inequality across the country.

Warren's 2020 announcement on Saturday follows a week in which she's taken major heat after a form years ago for the Texas bar came to light. "I want to see a revival of civic grace". "I think the story needs to come back to more of that, which is hard in this day and age". She meant to spend Sunday in Iowa, where the leadoff caucuses will be the first test of candidates' viability.

Warren has been a frontrunner among democrats in the presidential running for months now.

I will always vote to reelect Warren to the Senate, but she should not be the Democratic nominee.

Three of her fellow senators also are running - Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Kamala Harris of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey - with others actively considering it. Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is set to announce her plans on Sunday.
