"Politicians are looking the other way, while big insurance companies are failing patients to save their lives, while big banks are tearing consumers down and the big oil companies are destroying this planet."
The clip begins with the senator recalling a hard-nosed childhood in Oklahoma ̵

In one of several nods in the video on racial inequality, she adds that "color families face a path that is steeper and rockier, a path that has even been made harder by the effects of generations of discrimination" – an early recognition the political importance of the appeal to minority voters and their support.
Warren warns of a worsening crisis of the American middle class, with Warren showing a finger in the Republican Party, with pictures of former Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, along with grinning comedians from Treasury Secretary Steve Ryan, House of Representatives Paul Ryan , the Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell and Trump. Warren burns critics of the president and Trump has responded by mocking openly about their Native American heritage and calling them "Pocahontas". Her decision in October to respond to Trump and other critics by publishing the results of a DNA test aimed at proving her lineage coincided with many Democrats, overshadowing their intermezzo.
The announcement also takes place in the midst of a prolonged sub-government stalemate over Trump's insistence on financing a border wall that has led to a political mess that has troubled investors and triggered stock market turbulence.

More than a year after the first round and with months to go until the first debate, the upcoming Democratic pre-election collective is already becoming one of the most violent and vivacious competitions of any generation.
Warren's work on setting up and defending CFPB's Consumer Financial Bureau made her a star among the progressives that first pushed for a successful Senate run in 2012, and then, with less luck, a presidential campaign that eventually became her gave up four years later.   This time around, the Democratic mainstream is expected to include several progressive platform candidates – a reality that underlines its influence within the party, but could also complicate its path to nomination.
It is said that there were two dozen candidates showing interest in a 2020 offer. Warren's national profile, which goes back to her work as a watchdog after the 2008 bank bailouts, immediately ranks her among the favorites, along with former vice president Joe Biden, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, and up and coming Texas Congressman, Beto O & Rourke had just lost a bid for the US Senate.

Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. was one of the most outspoken critics and said Warren had undermined "tribal interests."
"Using a DNA test to connect with the Cherokee nation or any tribal nation is even inappropriate and inappropriate," Hoskin said in a statement.

While Warren talked for years about the "Warren wing" of the Democratic Party, he also gave an indication of how his group and possibly others the Massachusetts Senator want to differentiate from other leading competitors.  2] "There are several theories to be effective, but she believes in finding topics that are very popular and forging coalitions to win on these issues," he said.
