BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Senator Elizabeth Warren is not worried about the booming field of Democratic presidential contenders.
With Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders becoming the most recent addition the the growing list, Warren welcomes the competition. "I actually think this shows us that the Democrats have a lot of ideas and a lot of energy, and a lot of people want to see change," the 69-year-old Senator told host James Corden on The Late Late Show with James Corden. "So I think it's a very exciting moment."
Citing President Trump's recent use of emergency powers to build the border wall, Corden asked the Senator what problems facing the nation she would deem national emergencies if in office. "Climate Change. Gun violence. Student loan debt," Warren stated emphatically. "That's what we ought to be working on."
"We have a chance in 2020 to say 'Enough of government working for the rich and powerful'," Warren added, summing up her drive to run for President. "We want to make government work for the people."
