Elizabeth Warren: By 2020, Trump May Not Be a Free Man

The run-up to the 2020 presidential election already looks to be the most contentious in modern memory. While Donald Trump has attacked multiple democratic candidates, he normally saves his most toxic vitriol for Elizabeth Warren.


Warren, however, is not the type of person to take Trump’s slings and arrows lightly. During an event this weekend, Warren hinted Trump could be in prison by the time the 2020 elections take place.

Warren made the comments during a campaign event in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She told the assembled crowd, “Every day there is a racist tweet, a hateful tweet — something really dark and ugly. What are we as candidates, as activists, as the press, going to do about it? We’re going to chase after those every day?”

Warren was most likely referring to a tweet posted by the president shortly after Warren announced her intention to run. Trump wrote, “Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President. Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!”

The “trail” reference was seen as particularly offensive. In 1838, 4,000 Cherokee Indians died during their forced removal from their land. This historical incident is referred to as, The Trail of Tears.

Warren was forceful in both her condemnation of the tweet and response. She told the Iowa crowd, “By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president. In fact, he may not even be a free person.”
