Demo­crat El­iz­a­beth War­ren to seek US pres­i­dency in 2020

Asian Journal - - WORLD -

Wash­ing­ton: Mas­sachusetts Sen­a­tor El­iz­a­beth War­ren, one of the most prom­i­nent faces among Democrats, an­nounced the for­ma­tion of a com­mit­tee to weigh a bid for the party’s 2020 nom­i­na­tion for pres­i­dent of the United States.

“Amer­ica’s mid­dle class is un­der at­tack,” she said in a video on Mon­day declar­ing her in­ten­tions. “How did we get here? Bil­lion­aires and big cor­po­ra­tions de­cided they wanted more of the pie. And they en­listed politi­cians to cut them a fat­ter slice.” War­ren, a 69-yearold Ok­la­homa na­tive, was a pro­fes­sor at Har­vard Law School known for her ex­per­tise in bank­ruptcy re­ported cit­ing Rus­sian news agency In­ter­fax. On Mon­day, a large blast, be­lieved to have law when she was named in 2009 to chair a con­gres­sional panel mon­i­tor­ing the mas­sive bailout of Wall Street fol­low­ing the fi­nan­cial cri­sis, EFE news re­ported. Sub­se­quently, she helped cre­ate the Con­sumer Fi­nan­cial Pro­tec­tion Bureau be­fore win­ning elec­tion to the Se­nate in 2012. “No mat­ter what our dif­fer­ences, most of us want the same thing. To be able to work hard, play by the same set of rules and take care of the peo­ple we love. That’s what I’m fight­ing for and that’s why to­day I’m launch­ing an ex­ploratory com­mit­tee for pres­i­dent,” War­ren said in the video.
