Elizabeth Warren Blitzes Iowa With Populist Message

Elizabeth Warren Put the Green New Deal on Her Presidential Platform

Elizabeth Warren announced that she was starting an exploratory committee in advance of a 2020 Presidential run. NPR political correspondent Asma Khalid is in Des Moines, where Warren is appearing today.

Apparently, her heritage-related troubles aren't the fault of an incurious family who culturally appropriated indigenous American ancestry without any evidence they were related to a single Native American, but rather the fault of a "right wing" noise machine hellbent on casting Warren as.

'Tribes - and only tribes - determine tribal citizenship, and I respect that difference'.

KHALID: When you ask Democrats in Iowa what's important to them, a lot of them mention the same few issues - health care, college affordability, the climate and the economy.

Trump frequently belittles Warren's claims by calling her "Pocahantas", but she faced criticism from fellow Democrats and Native Americans for taking the test. In fact, the Cherokee Nation, of which Warren claims to be a blood member, rebuked the MA senator for even daring to claim Cherokee ancestry without going through the proper channels or providing anything in the way of proof she's a descendant of anyone of Native ancestry.

The last two years under Donald Trump have created a sense of urgency for Democrats, said Troy Price, the chairman of the Iowa Democratic Party. And she describes this as being what she thought was a personal story but years later realized it was actually a story about government because she says, you know, back when her mom got this job, minimum wage job, you could support a family of three. "But what I can do is I can be in this fight for all of our families".

Warren enters a Democratic field that's shaping up as the most crowded in decades, with many of her Senate colleagues openly weighing their own campaigns, as well as governors, mayors and other prominent citizens.

Whoopi hits Ocasio-Cortez for 'pooping on people'
Ultimately, though, Goldberg seemed to give Ocasio-Cortez more encouragement than condemnation. Taxing Americans excessively must be the "morally right" thing to do in her world.

"I went down to the border and I saw the children that had been taken away from their parents", she said.

"These are unsafe times for our country, and Iowa is going to play a big part in determining where we go next", said Warren.

"I truly believe that anyone that has him on their team, in terms of caucuses, has an advantage over anybody else", D'Alessandro said. "I don't have any power to do that", she added as an audience member yelled out, "Yes, you can!"

MARTIN: OK, Asma. And she doesn't seem to be talking to the president sort of directly that often.

"I think that campaigns should not be for sale", she said.

Smith, a financial data analyst who says she sees herself in Warren's "nerdy" personality, wondered why the MA senator made a decision to announce her exploratory committee ahead of other candidates, a move she predicted would be more necessary for people with less name recognition.

MARTIN: We only have a couple of seconds left, though. Tonight I told Rachel @Maddow: Every Democratic candidate for President in 2020 should link arms & pledge to run grassroots campaigns funded by the people. "I hate to say that, but I think that. I'd love to run against her". That is probably the most constant response. Asma, thanks so much for joining us.
