Sen. Elizabeth Warren officially announces 2020 presidential bid


See you later. Senator Warren announced she's entering theresidential race

and that announcement received a quick response from president trump.

ABC's white house correspondent Ta Palmeri is at the white

house with the campaign launch, the response and the backlash.

We need to take power in Washington away from the

wealthy and well-connected and put it back in the hands

of the people where it belongs Reporter: In the bitter

cold, senator Elizabeth Warren officially announcing her candidacy for president

in front of more than 3,000 people. The senator laying

out her plan for 2020 with a promise to fight

against income inequality. This is the fight of our lives.

The fight to build an America that works for everyone.

Reporter: The announcement for the presidential hopeful comes as she

looks back at backlash over her native American ancestry. Just

last week, "The Washington post" obtained her 1986 bar registration

card where under race she called herself American Indian, a

claim she has made for almost two decades, but Warren

issued a private apology to the chief of the cherokee

nation and said this on capitol hill. It was based

on my understanding from my family's stories, but family stories

are not the same as tribal citizenship. Reporter: President trump

has repeatedly referred to Warren with racial slurs, taunting the

setor on several occasions to prove her heritage. Tweeting late

last night, will she run as our first native American

presidential candidate or has she decided that after 32 years,

this is not playing so well anymore? See you on

the campaign trail, Liz. Warren isn't the only senate Democrat

to throw her hat into the ring. Senator Cory booker

of new Jersey spent the week crisscrossing Iowa, and senator

Amy klobuchar is expected to announce her candidacy today. Dan

and Eva? It is busy. Thank you very much.
