Warren criticizes Obama, discusses plan for 2020 bid


In a published interview with The Guardian, Sen. Elizabeth Warren made it clear she was less than impressed with former president Barack Obama’s time in office, saying that he, as well as other politicians, do not relate to “the lived experiences of most Americans.”

Warren is promoting her new book, “This Fight Is Our Fight,” and was recently interviewed by the publication.

“I think President Obama, like many others in both parties, talks about a set of big national statistics that look shiny and great but, increasingly, have giant blind spots … that GDP, unemployment no longer reflect the lived experiences of most Americans. And the lived experiences of most Americans (are) that they are being left behind in this economy,” Warren said. “Worse than being left behind, they’re being kicked in the teeth.”

Warren has made recent headlines after suggesting she will run in the 2020 election. In an effort to bring Democrats back to the top, she has been more critical of the Obama administration and Democrats, as a whole. She most recently said she was “troubled” by the former president’s decision to partake in paid speeches.

Warren has also toed the abortion line, saying Democrats should be more accepting of candidates who are pro-life. Yet, she still told The Guardian she would “probably not” endorse a candidate who opposes abortion rights.

“Let me be clear. Look, I’m pro-choice. I’m strongly pro-choice. I’ve been in these fights forever and forever and, at the federal level, this is powerfully important to me,” she said. “I get that not everyone in the Democratic Party agrees with me, but I am in this fight all the way.”
