Sen. Elizabeth Warren officially kicked off her 2020 presidential campaign this weekend, but the Massachusets senator posed that President Donald Trump may not be in a position to challenge her.

'Elizabeth Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected...'

The joke played on the hot water Warren found herself in for exaggerating her Native American ancestry over the years.

"What happens in 2020 is going to determine the direction of our nation, the direction of our people", she said, noting that America is experiencing a "dangerous moment".

But after Trump mocked her campaign effort, Warren began to get personal as well, pointing to the ongoing investigation into alleged Russian collusion by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Speaking at a campaign event on Sunday, the day after she announced her intention to run for president, Warren said that Trump may not be a "free person" by the end of the election. "What are we as candidates, as activists, as the press, going to do about it?"

Warren has said the story of Pocahontas long has "been taken away by powerful people who twisted it to serve their own purposes".

Warren has made a decision to ignore what she called Trump's "every day efforts to divide and distract", a campaign spokesperson told CNN. Warren continued. "Are we going to let him use those to divide us?" Cory Booker of New Jersey spoke to a crowd at Fairfield Central High School. Warren, who announced she was forming a presidential exploratory committee in December, could see additional documents surface to keep the issue alive, according to the Post.

Ms Warren announced her campaign in her home state of MA at a mill site where largely immigrant factory workers went on strike about 100 years ago, a fitting forum for the longtime consumer advocate to advance her platform.
