Elizabeth Warren endorses Joe Biden for president  2020

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren endorsed Joe Biden for president Wednesday morning. 

    The Massachusetts Democrat, a one-time presidential primary rival of the previous vice chairman, made the announcement online. during a video, Warren highlighted Biden’s work during the recovery from the 2008 financial crisis and his efforts to appease her state’s largest city after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing — casting him as a crisis manager because the coronavirus pandemic ravages the country. 

    “He knows that a government-run with integrity, competence, and heart will save lives and save livelihoods,” Warren said within the quite three-minute video. “And we can’t afford to let Donald Trump still endanger the lives and livelihoods of each American. And that’s why I’m proud to endorse Joe Biden as president of us .” 

    Her support for Biden, the apparent Democratic presidential nominee, comes each day after former President Barack Obama endorsed him. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent and Biden’s final primary opponent, supported Biden on Monday only a couple of days after he dropped out of the race. 
    In a statement responding to Warren’s endorsement, Biden said he had “no competitor more passionate in her convictions or sharper in her arguments” than the senator. He added that the detailed policy plans that Warren has become known are “more important than ever” because the pandemic wrecks the U.S. economy. 

    “We skill much work it'll fancy come through this crisis, and that I am proud to possess Senator Warren in my corner for the fight ahead — not even as we work to defeat Donald Trump in November, but within the years to return, as we erupt a bold and progressive policy agenda for the American people,” he said. 

    With Warren’s support, all of the intense contenders for the 2020 Democratic nomination have backed Biden. Her Senate colleagues — including those in presidential battlegrounds — have also begun to coalesce around the former vice-chairman. Sens. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wisc., and Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters, D-Mich., backed Biden on Wednesday, following Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, earlier this month. 

    The senator, who built her campaign around a steep wealth tax, ending large companies and transitioning to “Medicare for All,” has views that sometimes clash with Biden’s. When Biden first entered the presidential race, Warren — a fierce advocate for consumer protection and stricter bank regulations — criticized him over his support within the Senate for a 2005 bankruptcy bill that she opposed. 

    Since Warren left the race last month, Biden has tried to convert her supporters by adopting a number of her policies. He backed her decision to change bankruptcy rules, including by allowing people to shed student loans during a bankruptcy process during a similar thanks to other debts.

    He also called to forgive $10,000 per person in federal student loan debt during the coronavirus outbreak, an idea suggests by Warren and other Democratic senators. 

    In the endorsement video, Warren acknowledged her differences with Biden — a person she labeled a “Washington insider” during the campaign. She said she had no Democratic primary opponents “I’ve agreed with 100% of the time over the years.” But she added that Biden will “always tell you where he stands” and “listen.”

    “And he’s shown throughout this campaign that once you come up with new facts or an honest argument, he’s not too afraid or too proud to be persuaded,” Warren said. 

    Biden is that the last Democrat standing within the presidential primary, but it's unclear when he will become the nominee. He has amassed 1,288 pledged delegates — about two-thirds of what he must become his party’s standard-bearer, consistent with NBC News.

    But since a slew of states pushed their primaries back to June, he won't hit the delegate threshold for weeks. 

    Since she left the presidential race, Warren has proposed a string of coronavirus relief measures within the Senate. alongside the debt forgiveness proposal, she has suggested an idea calling for higher pay, guaranteed leave and stronger safety protections for people that need to enter their workplaces during the pandemic. 

    On Wednesday, she also proposed a $50 billion injection to stabilize the kid care system during the pandemic, to make sure parents are ready to return to figure.
