She also slammed Trump over his tweets, calling them "racist" and "hateful" and called for her supporters to ignore the President's comments and not to merely respond to every single action of Trump's.

Jordan Gale/Polaris/NewscomSenator Elizabeth Warren, announcing her campaign for president here over the weekend, used the word "rich" or a variation on it-"richer", "richest"-at least nine times in a single 45-minute stump speech". Warren's campaign wouldn't say what the senator believes Trump was referencing. "It's to talk about what we understand is broken in this country, talk about what needs to be done to change it and talk about how we're going to do that because that is not only how we win, it's how we make the change we need to make".

Elizabeth Warren takes the stage during an event to formally launch her presidential campaign. Warren drummed up the usual accusations of Trump 'trying to divide us, ' because the president wants a wall to protect Americans. "In fact, he may not even be a free person".

The offensive remark, largely characteristic of the 41-year-old's pugnacious and near-constant social media presence, is another in a series by the President and his son to engage in racism to smear the Massachusetts Democrat.

Prodded by reporters to explain the remark a few hours later in Iowa City, Warren said she was simply noting the proliferation of probes into the president. Warren cemented her 2020 campaign with a call to fight economic inequality and build "an America that works for everyone".

As well as special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, President Trump faces a probe by the House intelligence committee of his inaugural committee over illegal foreign donations, as well as inquiries into practices at the Trump Organization.

With last month's indictment of Roger Stone, Trump's longtime friend and adviser, 34 people have been charged in the Mueller investigation, and six Trump associates have pleaded guilty. She also gave a speech past year discussing her reasons for why she called herself a Native American, but she didn't apologize.

That shift made her sharp, though brief, shot at Trump on Sunday all the more notable.

Warren has struggled to shake the controversy surrounding her past claims to Native American heritage.
