Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren on Saturday (local time) kicked off her campaign for the post of President in the 2020 elections from Lawrence in Massachusetts.

The Senator from Massachusetts anchored the backdrop of Everett Mills in Lawrence, site renown for the 1912 labour strike led by women and immigrants, to act against the wealthy power brokers who "have been waging class warfare against hardworking people for decades."

"The man in the White House is not the cause of what is broken, he is just the latest and most extreme symptom of what's gone wrong in America," CNN quoted Warren while targeting President Donald Trump during her campaign.

"A product of a rigged system that props up the rich and powerful and kicks dirt on everyone else. So once he's gone, we can't pretend that none of this ever happened," she added.

Warren is one of the first stalwarts from the Democrats to have announced her candidature for the 2020 Presidential elections, according to The New York Times.

Warren would be contesting against incumbent President Trump, who on one occasion called her "Pocahontas" due to her alleged Native American ancestry.

She has, in turn, labelled him as "a thin-skinned racist bully" and a "wannabe tyrant".

Warrens campaign comes after senators, including Kamala Harris and Cory Booker has already jumped into the race for the Presidential bid.

However, Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, in a statement issued on Saturday, in response to Warrens campaign said, 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," the statement noted. (ANI)
