Democrat Elizabeth Warren took aim at President Donald Trump, saying he "may not even be a free person" by next year's election.

Warren, who officially announced her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination on Saturday, made the remark at the Veterans Memorial Building in Cedar Rapids in front of a crowd of several hundred.

"It's no longer just the Mueller investigation", Warren said. 'Keep America Great!' Donald Trump Unveils 2020 US Presidential Election Campaign Slogan.

"This tweet is actually racist, but there are some conservative debating that it wasn't about the trail of tears because Trump doesn't know what that is", he said. "And what are we, as candidates, as activists, the press, going to do about it? We're going to chase after those every day?"

Warren's comments come after President Trump took a jab at her on Twitter shortly after she announced her presidential campaign.

President Donald Trump could soon be trading the White House for the big house if you ask Elizabeth Warren. "In fact, he may not even be a free person".

Speaking about the appointment, Oldham owner Abdallah Lemsagam said: "Paul has won everything there is to win in football ". I have been quite critical. "I want my team to be aggressive and focused on winning first and foremost", he said.

"Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President,"he tweeted, seemingly ignoring Native American groups' past calls to stop invoking the name of a historical Native American figure in a way to criticize a political opponent".

The Trail of Tears was a string of forced relocations of Native Americans from their ancestral lands in the American southeast to reservations in Oklahoma under President Andrew Jackson following the Indian Removal Act of 1830, during which, thousands perished from hunger, disease and exposure before they arrived.

Warren came under fire previous year for taking a DNA test to demonstrate her Native American ancestry.

Warren's campaign launch has been shadowed by the controversy surrounding her past claims to Native American heritage.

Saturday's appearance is part of a series of organizing events that Warren is holding around the country to boost support for the USA senator from Massachusetts' presidential campaign in early primary states.
