Sen. Elizabeth Warren spoke in front of the Boston State House on New Year’s Eve.

Warren’s speech was primarily targeted towards President Donald Trump and contrasting ideas with her fellow democratic rivals in hopes to re-energize her own White House campaign.

Warren addressed President Trump’s impeachment, warning that he would “try to cheat his way through yet another election” if he is not removed from office.

As a U.S. senator, Warren will vote on whether to convict President Trump of improperly pressuring Ukraine for political favors.

The race for the Democratic election continues into the new year with 15 Democrats still in the running. Warren remains a top candidate in third place behind former Vice President Joe Biden and fellow U.S. senator Bernie Sanders, according to RealClearPolitics National Polling Average Website.

Warren had front running status in the election, but her momentum stalled under sustained attacks from more moderate Democratic candidates.   

In response, Warren revisited her Medicare For All proposal and her view on economic populism in her New Year’s Eve speech.

“The billionaires, the corporate executives and their favorite presidential candidates have one clear goal: to convince you that everything you imagine is impossible.” 

While she did not name the names of her rivals, her remarks were likely aimed at Biden and South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, whom she previously criticized for holding high-priced fundraisers.

The nominating contests in Iowa and New Hampshire in early February will be critical tests of candidates’ viability and the final Democratic candidates.
