Sen. Elizabeth Warren formally kicked off her campaign for the White House with a rally Saturday in the working-class town of Lawrence, Mass.
The liberal Democrat’s 2020 message leaned heavily on her populist calls to fight back against a “rigged system” and her opposition to the policies of President Trump.
Warren didn’t directly rip into the current occupant of the Oval Office, instead accusing his administration of being the “most corrupt in living memory” and highlighting her resistance to his economic and immigration policies in calling for “structural reform.”
“It won’t be enough to just undo the terrible acts of this administration. We can’t afford to just tinker around the edges – a tax credit here, a regulation there. Our fight is for big, structural change,” Warren told the crowd at the outdoor rally.
The Trump foe decried a “middle-class squeeze” that has been compounded by “too little accountability for the rich, too little opportunity for everyone else.”
