Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) suggested that President Donald Trump may be jailed by the time election day in 2020 rolls around.

Weaving specific policy prescriptions into her remarks - from Medicare for All to the elimination of Washington "lobbying as we know it" - Ms Warren avoided taking direct jabs at President Donald Trump. "Are we going to let him use those to divide us?" "I've been grateful for her counsel as we've worked together to tackle issues of importance to Indian Country", Warren said in her introduction of Andrews-Maltais.

Actor Rob Lowe's tweet mocking Elizabeth Warren's controversial claims to Native American ancestry was deleted following a wave of outrage, which in turn prompted a heated backlash about "snowflakes" and Hollywood hypocrisy.

Countless Democratic leaders have urged the party not to spend the 2020 campaign tangling with President Donald Trump over tweets and taunts.

U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris of California also is expected to make her second campaign appearance in SC this weekend. Hours after she formally kicked off her campaign on Saturday, the president renewed his criticism of her past claims of Native American heritage.

Earlier in the day, in announcing her candidacy, Warren didn't name-check the president, but she did reference him, saying "the man in the White House is not the cause of what's broken, he's just the latest and most extreme symptom of what's gone wrong in America".

"But her campaign, which has faced more direct attacks from Trump than other Democratic candidates, appears to see the question about Trump's own viability as way to stop engaging with everything he says", the Washington Post reported.

Warren made her first campaign stop in SC at Columbia College on January 23, pitching an economically populist agenda aimed at struggling middle-class voters. She downplayed talk of impeachment and stressed to reporters that she was focused on "structural" problems that "were broken long before Donald Trump got here".

"As Senator Warren has said she is not a citizen of any tribe and only tribes determine tribal citizenship", Kristen Orthman, Warren's spokeswoman, said in a statement.

A former Justice Department legal expert wrote in The New York Times in December saying that Trump technically could be indicted, but that it was unlikely to happen.

"Senator Warren did not make a surprise visit to the NCAI conference today", a spokeswoman told CNN, "although it is my understanding that she spoke at the National Indian Women Honor Luncheon".
