Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) went after President Trump at her first campaign stop in Cedar Rapids, Iowa Sunday, speculating that the president “may not even be a free person” in 2020.

“One of the things we’re gonna have to decide about how campaigns go forward is about what Donald Trump does every day,” Warren said. “Every day, there is a racist tweet, a hateful tweet, something really dark and ugly. And what are we as candidates, as activists, as the press, going to do about that? Are we going to chase after those every day? Are we going to let him use those to divide us?”

“You know, here’s what bothers me,” she continued. “By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president. In fact, he may not even be a free person.”

“Here’s how I see it,” Warren concluded. “Donald Trump is not the only problem we’ve got. Yeah. Donald Trump is the symptom of a badly broken system.”

Warren was asked about her comments and told reporters, “come on, how many investigations are there now, into him? It’s no longer just the Mueller investigation … These are serious investigations.”

However, when asked if she thought Trump should be impeached, Warren responded that the Mueller investigation needed to come out first.

Sen. Warren was mocked by President Trump when she announced her 2020 presidential bid Saturday. He joked about her past claims to Native American heritage.

Warren was forced to apologize last week when The Washington Post revealed that she claimed Native American heritage not only at Harvard, but also when applying for the Texas State Bar in 1986.

She took a DNA test last year that found she was likely 1/1,024th Native American. The Cherokee Nation took offense at her use of the DNA test to claim tribal heritage, calling it "indefensible."
