Elizabeth Warren looks to challenge Trump in 2020 race The senator from Massachusetts, 69, said she would decide whether to run early this year.“Every person in America should be able to work hard, play by the same set of rules, and take care of themselves and the people they love. That’s what I’m fighting for, and that’s why I’m launching an exploratory committee for president,” Warren said on Twitter.In a video released with the tweet Warren attacked billionaires, big corporations and politicians for cutting their own taxes and rolling back financial regulation.“America’s middle class is getting hollowed out and opportunity for too many of our young people is shrinking,” she told reporters outside her home. “So I’m in this fight all the way.
