JUST IN: Elizabeth Warren Makes HUGE Announcement About 2020 Presidential Race

News, Politics, Women

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) is one of Donald Trump‘s fiercest and most feared political rivals. The senator enjoys support from the majority of both the Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton camps within the Democratic party, which is why so many progressives anticipate that she’ll face off with Trump in 2020.

However, on Saturday, the senator seemed to pour cold water on that idea during an interview which aired Sunday on “Meet the Press.” When pressed by host Chuck Todd on whether she planned to serve another six-year Senate term, Warren was direct.

“So look, I am not running for president of the United States. I am running for the United States Senate,” Warren said.

“But let me actually make a — underline a point on this one, and that is we can’t just be a party that says, “Oh, we’re paying attention about what happens every four years.” And I know there’s a lot of anxiety, particularly on the Democratic side, about how we are going to deal with Donald Trump in 2020,” she added.

“I take it as a no you’re not pledging to serve your full six-year term if you win reelection?” Todd asked in response.

“I already told you. I have no intention of running for the United States, for president,” she responded. “This government is working better and better and better for a thinner and thinner slice at the top. I am in these fights, and I am in this fight to retain my Senate seat in 2018. That’s where I’m focused. That’s where I’m going to stay focused. I’m not running for president.”

“So no pledge, though, on the six years?” Todd asked, one last time.

“I am not running for president,” Warren responded firmly.


While it’s disheartening to hear Warren rule out a run, keep in mind, that hardly anyone ever admits they are going to run for the presidency this early. That is unless your name is Donald Trump. Let’s just see what the future holds.

I'm a reformed "South Park Conservative" who has grown passionate about progressive issues like social justice, education, criminal justice reform, gun control, ending the war on drugs, and economic inequality. I believe America's a stronger nation when we come together as one to find a solution and humble ourselves enough to consider other points of view from our neighbors around the world. I don't believe in American exceptionalism, but I do believe America can only be an exceptional place as long as we can be brutally honest about its strengths and weaknesses.
