Elizabeth Warren blindsided Donald Trump with these eight words
Democrats are beginning to test the waters to run for President against Donald Trump.
Senator Elizabeth Warren is one of the biggest names many expect to jump into the race.
But when Warren was asked if she was running for President, her eight word answer left jaws on the ground.
Warren appeared on CNN and was asked point blank if she was running in 2020.
Her answer was not what anyone was expecting.
Warren declared “I am not running for President in 2020.”

Warren may have been throwing cold water on her Presidential aspirations because she is up for re-election in 2018.
While she may be running in deep blue Massachusetts, past potential Presidential frontrunners have slipped up in their re-election and were forced out of national contention.
In 2006, Virginia Republican George Allen was considered one of the top-tier contenders for the 2008 nomination.
But he lost his re-election and was never mentioned against as a potential presidential nominee.
Warren could be trying to remove any Presidential speculation until after the midterm elections.
As a radical leftist, she is well in tune with the socialist voter base in the Democrat Party.
Warren’s ability to raise money from the grassroots and her attacks on capitalism make her well positioned to win the Democrat nomination, but her left-wing radicalism would make her toxic in a general election.
