"We must not allow those with power to weaponize hatred and bigotry to divide us", said Warren, who is 69, adding later, "Bigotry has no place in the Oval Office".

Mrs. Warren said President Trump is "a product of a rigged system that props up the rich and powerful and kicks dirt on everyone else". "This is the fight of our lives", she said, according to CNN.

"All I know is, during this time period, this is consistent with what I did because it was based on my understanding from my family's stories, but family stories are not the same as tribal citizenship", Warren said.

Earlier today, Trump's 2020 campaign also slammed Warren as a "fraud" in an email sent to supporters. "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".

Warren is part of an increasingly crowded and diverse field of Democrats vying for the chance to challenge President Donald Trump, the likely Republican nominee.

In 2003, Senator John Kerry chose for his announcement not the reliably blue MA, but the red state of SC, and stressed his military service during a time of war by using a US Navy ship for a backdrop.
