Her actions say otherwise.
Elizabeth Warren says she’s not running for president in 2020. She could have fooled us. Her actions suggest not only is she running, she has already begun. Still, she denies it.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Warren: ‘I’m Not Running for President in 2020’
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D, Mass.) stated that she is not running for president in 2020 during an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Wednesday night.
The question came at the end of an interview in which Warren discussed her new book, This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save Working People. Maddow also asked Warren to discuss the ongoing questions about the possible connections between President Trump’s campaign and Russia.
Finally, at the end of the interview, Maddow popped the question.
“If you were running for president in 2020,” Maddow asked Warren, “you would not want to talk about it now, with me or anybody else, is that true?”
“That is true,” Warren said. “But let me be clear, I am not running for president in 2020.”
Here’s a video of that moment:
Warren has positioned herself as a leader of the “Resistance” against Donald Trump. She’s pretty busy for someone who’s not planning to run for president.
From The Hill:
Warren builds her brand with 2020 down the road
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) says she’s not running for president.
Her office says she’s focused on her Senate reelection bid.
But she has the public schedule of a future presidential candidate.
Warren will speak Sunday to the NAACP in Detroit, and next month she will deliver the keynote address to an annual gala held by EMILY’s List, which aims to elect female candidates who support abortion rights.
Both groups represent important Democratic constituencies, and the NAACP speech will bring Warren to Michigan, a key swing state President Trump wrested from Democrats last year.
Warren has also released a new book titled “This Fight is our Fight” which she promoted in an appearance on the Today Show last week. During the segment below, she is asked about 2020 and gives pretty much the same answer she gave Maddow:
At this point, it’s hard to imagine who the Democrats will run in 2020 if not Warren. If you watched the Today Show video, you may have noticed that Warren repeatedly mentions the middle class.
That ship sailed with Donald Trump in 2016 and Warren’s party has shown no interest in winning back those voters.
