Elizabeth Warren said on Twitter she would announce her decision on whether to run early in 2019.

US senator Elizabeth Warren become on Monday, the last day of 2018, the highest profile Democrat to formally move towards a White House run, announcing the launch of an exploratory committee, usually, but not necessarily, the first step in that direction.

Senators Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand and others are expected to follow soon, with similar exploratory committees or a formal run in coming days a week.

“Every person in America should be able to work hard, play by the same set of rules, & take care of themselves & the people they love,” Warren wrote on Twitter on Monday morning. “That’s what I’m fighting for, & that’s why I’m launching an exploratory committee for president. I need you with me,” the 69-year-old said.

In an embedded video for supporters, she pitched herself as a candidate who will fight for the middle-class, people of colour and people immigrants who may come to the country from anywhere and take on corruption by politicians and big corporation.

“Our government is supposed to work for all of us, but instead, it has become a tool for the wealthy and well-connected … If we organize together, if we fight together, if we persist together, we can win.”

Warren, a janitor’s daughter who went on teach law at Harvard, shot into public limelight after president Barack Obama named her to set up a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, based on an idea mooted by her, following the Great Recession triggered by them in 2008.

The aim was to protect consumers from banks and financial institutions, the Wall Street, that had triggered the financial crisis most of the world, because of their linkages to the US economy.

Warren went on to run, and win, for the Senate from Massachusetts and was re-elected for a second term in the November mid-term elections.

Speculation about her run has attracted attention and snide remarks from President Donald Trump, who will be seeking a second term in 2020.

He has attacked her over her claims of Native American ancestry and calls her Pocahontas, after the daughter of a Native American chieftain who interacted with the first American settler in the late 16th century and married one of them. Source : ht
