One of the Democratic presidential candidates for 2020 elections, Senator Elizabeth Warren, took a swipe at her political rival President Donald Trump on Sunday, saying that he "may not even be a free person" by next year's election.

Warren, who has been a frequent target of the president, largely avoided talking about the Republican ever since she began testing the waters for her presidential bid over a month ago.

Trump has frequently mocked Warren over her past claims to Native American heritage, an attack he reprised against the Massachusetts Senator in a tweet on Sunday.

Warren launched her White House bid formally on Saturday in Massachusetts. She has grounded her campaign in populist calls to tackle economic inequality, a goal which has made her a favorite among the Democrats.

"Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President. Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!" Trump wrote on Sunday.

Warren, during her first of the three events on Sunday in eastern Iowa, retaliated saying that the president should not be allowed to dictate the campaigns' direction with divisive attacks. 

"Every day there is a racist tweet, a hateful tweet - something really dark and ugly," the senator said. "What are we as candidates, as activists, as the press, going to do about it? We're going to chase after those every day? Here's what bothers me. By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president. In fact, he may not even be a free person."

Although the senator did not explain her comment, she appeared to be referring to the multiple investigations that have shadowed Trump's presidency, the primary being the one run by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

When Warren was later asked whether she supported Trump's impeachment, she said that the only thing she wants is for Mueller to be allowed to finish his investigation and make his report public, according to the Daily Mail.

"If we go down that path, we're going to need to help pull this country together and have as many people as possible understand it was a legitimate process based on facts," Warren said.

The president, till now, has not been charged with any crimes in relation to possible collusion between his campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 presidential elections. However, several of his aides have pleaded guilty to multiple charges over the last two years.
