She also discussed her plans if she were to be elected to office, giving a list of things for which she would declare a national emergency, as President Donald Trump has declared a national emergency to build a wall on the southern border to prevent the inflow of criminal aliens.

When asked what specific issues Warren would declare a national emergency over, she said “climate change, gun violence, student loan debt, right off the top. That’s what we ought to be working on.”

The Massachusetts Democrat, who announced her presidential bid on Dec. 31, also released a new universal child care plan on Tuesday.

“Today, in more than half the states in the country, a year of childcare costs more than a year of in-state college tuition,” Warren said. “We’re placing a huge financial burden on working families looking to find a safe and nurturing place for their kids.”
