Even after enduring a mountain of negative press over her admission, and subsequent apology, that she falsified documents by stating she was Native American, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (D) is announcing her 2020 presidential campaign.
Warren spend the week in Washington apologizing for the recently discovered 30-year-old Texas Bar form where she clearly stated she was “Native American.”
Warren said that she was “sorry” for extending “confusion” over “tribal citizenship” and “tribal sovereignty,” adding “I am not a tribal citizen.”
Since it was first discovered that Warren may have exaggerated her Native American heritage, President Trump has poked fun at her by calling her “Pocahontas” every chance he gets. Now with the latest bar application revelation, expect Trump to pounce.
President Trump’s re-election committee was quick to pounce on Warren’s presidential bid, calling a “fraud”:
“Elizabeth Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career, and the people of Massachusetts she deceived to get elected. The American people will reject her dishonest campaign and socialist ideas like the Green New Deal, that will raise taxes, kill jobs and crush America’s middle-class. Only under President Trump’s leadership will America continue to grow safer, secure and more prosperous.”-Trump Campaign
Warren joins a slew of other 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls, including Sens. Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gilibrand, and soon-to-be-announced, Sen. Amy Klobuchar
