Warren: Trump ‘May Not Even Be a Free Person’ in 2020

Senator Elizabeth Warren suggested President Trump may be imprisoned within two years during her inaugural presidential campaign address in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Sunday.

“One of the things we’re gonna have to decide about how campaigns go forward is about what Donald Trump does every day,” Warren told the crowd. “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 said. “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. Donald Trump is not the only problem we’ve got. Yeah. Donald Trump is the symptom of a badly broken system.”

Asked by reporters to expand upon her comments after the speech, Warren cited the multiple ongoing investigations into the Trump campaign’s dealings with Russian officials.

“Come on, how many investigations are there now, into him? It’s no longer just the Mueller investigation … These are serious investigations,” she told reporters.

The Trump campaign responded to Warren’s claims in a Sunday statement, mocking her over the release of her DNA test results, which she recently apologized for amid backlash from the Cherokee Nation and liberal activists.

“Elizabeth Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career, and the people of Massachusetts she deceived to get elected,” campaign manager Brad Parscale said.“The American people will reject her dishonest campaign and socialist ideas like the Green New Deal, that will raise taxes, kill jobs and crush America’s middle-class.”
