"Donald Trump isn't the only problem we've got", she continued in her speech Sunday.

Warren's comments come after President Trump took a jab at her on Twitter shortly after she announced her presidential campaign.

She might be referring to Trump's tweet Saturday when Trump slammed Warren in what appeared to be a joke about the Trail of Tears, the forced relocation of thousands of Native Americans during the 19th century.

Democrat Elizabeth Warren took aim at President Donald Trump, saying he "may not even be a free person" by next year's election. Trump held an event in November 2017 honoring Navajo veterans in front of the Jackson portrait, and at the same event he referenced his recurring "Pocahontas" attack on Warren. "What are we as candidates, as activists, as the press, going to do about it?"

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren officially announces her candidacy for President of the United States at a gathering in Lawrence.

The more traction Warren's campaign gains, though, the more it undermines her claim that "the rich and powerful have rigged our political system", writes Ira Stoll.

Lamenting that the country is in a "dangerous moment", the Massachusetts Democrat said, "What happens in 2020 is going to determine the direction of our nation, the direction of our people". "In fact, he may not even be a free person", she added. Warren's remark comes as Trump's legal woes mount and as Mueller's investigation on Russian election interference has closed in on several key members of the President's circle, reports The Washington Post.

Saturday's appearance is part of a series of organizing events that Warren is holding around the country to boost support for the US senator from Massachusetts' presidential campaign in early primary states.

"Over the years, America's middle class has been deliberately hollowed out, and families of color have been systematically discriminated against and denied their chance to build some security", she said (transcript via Frank Camp).

She's apologized for claiming Native American identity on multiple occasions early in her career.
