Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., shot back at President Donald Trump after he called her campaign a "fraud", suggesting Trump could be impeached or indicted by the time the 2020 election rolls around. She's apologised for claiming Native American identity on multiple occasions early in her career. "Yeah. Donald Trump is the symptom of a badly broken system", she said.

Elizabeth Warren takes the stage during an event to formally launch her presidential campaign.

When asked to clarify her statements, Warren pointed to the multiple open investigations into the president, which includes the Russian Federation probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and two additional investigations led by federal prosecutors in NY and Democrats who won back the majority in the House of Representatives this past November.

Her visit at the event, hosted by the National Conference of American Indians, comes after she apologized last week to the Cherokee Nation for releasing a DNA test in October in an attempt to prove she had Native ancestry.

Warren said she believes the country is facing "dangerous moment", according to CNN.

"Every day there is a racist tweet, a hateful tweet - something really dark and ugly", she said. "And what are we, as candidates, as activists, the press, going to do about it?"

Warren was speaking the day after Trump attacked her 2020 candidacy, calling her "Pocahontas", and seemingly making a joking reference to the Trail of Tears - a genocide that forcibly displaced tens of thousands of Native Americans and caused the death of roughly 4,000 in the mid-1800s.

Warren officially launched her presidential campaign on Saturday in her home state of MA at a mill site where largely immigrant and female factory workers went on strike in 1912 to call attention to the wealthy power brokers who "have been waging a class warfare against hardworking people for decades", Warren said in her speech. "She's forceful and, let's say it - she persists!"

But a day later, the Washington Post reported that Warren had listed her race as "American Indian" on a State Bar of Texas registration card in 1986.

Warren has chose to ignore what she called Trump's "every day efforts to divide and distract", a campaign spokesperson told CNN.

Elizabeth Warren, 2020 Presidential candidate from MA, on Saturday said that United States President Donald Trump will be behind bars before the 2020 Presidential elections.
