Senator Elizabeth Warren today announced she was running to rival President Donald Trump in the 2020 U.S. elections.

She planned a late morning announcement at a mill site in Lawrence where largely immigrant factory workers went on strike about 100 years ago, providing the longtime consumer advocate a forum to advance her platform.

She was introduced Saturday by Rep. Joe Kennedy III, D-Mass., who has endorsed her in the primary.

Warren picked up the endorsement of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) simultaneously with her launch - a group that could pump millions of dollars behind her candidacy and provide an outside attack dog against her Democratic opponents.

Warren's announcement comes a little more than one month after she announced an exploratory committee, the first step major candidates take when considering a run for president.

President Donald Trump frequently derided Warren as "Pocahontas" beginning in 2016 when she would blast the then-Republican nominee, and she eventually released a DNA test showing she had a distant Native American ancestor to try to quell the controversy.

Arguing that the struggles mill workers faced 100 years ago are similar to those million of American families face today, Warren said she - like the women of Lawrence - is here to say "enough is enough" and take her fight for US middle class workers to the White House.

"This is the fight of our lives. This go-around, Warren needs to deal with the issue now, rather than in October 2020".

Warren is undoubtedly a well qualified and strong addition to the 2020 democratic primary, which a lot of public and political support behind her.

The Cherokee Nation blasted Warren for the test, which they said was a false claim to tribal membership, leading the senator to apologise. "And that is why I stand here today: to declare that I am a candidate for President of the United States of America".

For her 2020 campaign, Warren has proposed a 2% wealth tax on fortunes of $50m or greater and a 3% tax on fortunes $1bn or greater.

Speaking at her campaign launch event in Lawrence, Massachusetts, on Saturday, Warren vowed to "fight to build an America where dreams are possible, an America that works for everyone".

Elizabeth Warren essentially has been disqualified from a presidential run by virtue of her claim, in 1986, to Native American race on her Texas bar registration card. "I want to see a revival of civic grace".

"Elizabeth Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career, and the people of MA she deceived to get elected", campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. On that form, she listed herself as an "American Indian" in her handwriting - and even after she apologized, she's faced strong criticism for it.

The Cherokee Nation criticized Warren's announcement past year, saying her use of a DNA test is "useless" for determining tribal citizenship and that using DNA analysis to determine connection to any tribal nation is "inappropriate and wrong".
