Elizabeth Warren Talks Iowa Trip, Drinking Beer On Instagram Live

Last week, Warren announced she was launching an exploratory committee, the first step in seeking a party's nomination for president. You know it. I know it. "And it needs to stop".

The Massachusetts Democrat told reporters on Wednesday that she's planning to visit the state with the nation's first presidential caucuses after being sworn in on Thursday to a second Senate term.

Warren is throwing her name into the ring early - but supporters in Council Bluffs say she should bring it on.

Warren said she plans to run on many of those same basic economic issues, which she said have been made even more precarious by Washington politics.

"As a lower middle class American, budget and finances sometimes - living paycheck to paycheck is very hard", she said. "And it is wrong, and that's why I'm in this fight".

Warren burst onto the national scene a decade ago during the financial crisis with calls for greater consumer protections.

MARTIN: So what are the voters hearing from her?

Warren's travels will continue with an event Saturday night in the state capital of Des Moines, followed by a meeting with female leaders on Sunday in the rapidly growing suburb of Ankeny. "We need to call this what it is, corruption pure and simple", the MA senator told Democrats in Sioux City on the second of five public stops during her three-day visit.

In the meantime, she said, Trump is focused on finding bipartisan solutions on critical issues like infrastructure and trade. Trump reaffirmed that he would consider declaring a national emergency to circumvent Congress and spend money as he saw fit.

If Warren has strong feelings about ethanol, an important issue for Iowa voters and favorite means for out-of-state candidates to pander to them, she hasn't yet let on.

The large field of potential Democratic candidates includes two prominent billionaires, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and investor Tom Steyer.

And the senator reiterated the fact that she is not a person of color. "I'm gonna get me a beer", leaving the frame, rattling about in her icebox, and then taking a big gulp from the bottle once she was back onscreen. "It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven". "I am grateful, but I am also determined". "Who just want a chance to build an America that doesn't just work for a handful of folks at the top, but an America that works for all of us, and that's why I'm in this fight". Warren said she wanted to "put it all out there" in public, but 2020 won't be "about my family", but millions of others "who just want a level playing field". And so what it comes down to for a lot of folks, like Richard Malloy from Sioux City, is just somebody who can beat Donald Trump. This week, he tweeted out a fake bumper sticker mocking the senator.

Former Housing Secretary Julian Castro also has formed an exploratory committee, and former US Representative John Delaney became the first Democrat to formally declare previous year and has campaigned extensively in the state. Dozens of candidates, including many of Warren's fellow senators, are likely to enter the contest.

Michelob Ultra is apparently Massachusetts Sen. Bernie Sanders as the Democratic front-runners. "Many winning House candidates rejected corporate PAC money in 2018 - and won", the group, which supports Warren, said in an email to supporters.

Warren, who left Friday for Iowa, visited Des Moines, Council Bluffs, Storm Lake, and Sioux City.

"I'm ready for something good, something better, " she said.

But Trump has continued to criticize her and say the test was not valid.
