Iowa debut trip for potential 2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren

Sen. Elizabeth Warren: "America's middle class is getting hollowed out".

Her call for billionaires not to self-fund campaign operations follows CNBC's reporting that Democratic donor and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg was prepared to spend more than $100 million on his own campaign organization if he were to run in 2020.

It also pointed out that Trump has been critical of Warren's claims that she had some Native American ancestry. The president has repeatedly referred to her with the racially charged nickname "Pocahontas".
