POCAHONTAS: Trump 'May Not Be a Free Person' in 2020

Warren drummed up the usual accusations of Trump 'trying to divide us, ' because the president wants a wall to protect Americans.

U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris of California also is expected to make her second campaign appearance in SC this weekend.

On Monday, comedian Seth Meyers ridiculed President Donald Trump over his latest racist tweets and comments.

Jordan Gale/Polaris/NewscomSenator Elizabeth Warren, announcing her campaign for president here over the weekend, used the word "rich" or a variation on it-"richer", "richest"-at least nine times in a single 45-minute stump speech".

Warren did not address or make any mention of the controversies surrounding her past claims to Native American heritage, an aide told CNN, including an attempt to prove her ancestry with a DNA test a year ago, which has been a source of anger and frustration for some tribes and activists.

The moment marked a notable shift in tone for Warren, who has been reluctant to take on Trump directly by name since she announced her exploratory campaign on New Year's Eve. "In fact, he may not even be a free person", she added.

Warren's comments came a day after Trump took aim at the MA senator over her claims of having Native American heritage when she officially announced her candidacy for a 2020 presidential bid on Saturday.


Prodded by reporters to explain the remark a few hours later in Iowa City, Warren said she was simply noting the proliferation of probes into the president. Warren's remark comes as Trump's legal woes mount and as Mueller's investigation on Russian election interference has closed in on several key members of the President's circle, reports The Washington Post.

On Saturday, Trump appeared to invoke the Trail of Tears, the infamously cruel forced relocation of Native Americans in the early 19th century that caused thousands of deaths, when he mocked Warren on Twitter: "See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz".

Warren has mostly stayed away from discussing the topic of a Trump impeachment.

Haaland introduced Warren onstage, saying, "Indian Country needs strong allies like Elizabeth Warren, whose unwavering commitment to Native communities and Native American women and children is needed in this political era".

"They are actually defending Trump by saying he is too dumb to be racist", Meyers said, referring to folks like Hume.

Warren's campaign launch has been shadowed by the controversy surrounding her past claims to Native American heritage. Warren's campaign wouldn't say what the senator believes Trump was referencing.
