How old is Elizabeth Warren?

Elizabeth Warren was born on 22 June 1949, which makes her 70 years old.

She would overtake Donald Trump as the oldest first-time elected President of the United States if she beats him in 2020.

Her age at inauguration day would be 71 years, 6 months, and 29 days.

When Trump was sworn in as President, he was 70 years, seven months, and six days old.

Who is her husband?

Elizabeth Warren is married to Harvard Law professor Bruce Mann.

On her 35th wedding anniversary, she revealed that she proposed to him – not the other way around.

She wrote on Facebook: “When I proposed to him, he said yes. I bought a sundress that could double as a wedding gown, and 35 years ago today, I married Bruce.

“This anniversary, I’ll celebrate living in America where everyone can marry their own Bruce – their best friend, biggest supporter, and love of their life.”

What did Trump say about her Native American heritage

Donald Trump has repeatedly hit out at Warren for her claims of Native American ancestry – and says she got into Harvard by lying about it.

In July, the president offered to donate £756k ($1 million) to her favourite charity if a DNA test proved her Native American bloodline after accusing her of making it up.

Her test results provided some evidence of a Native American in her lineage, though the ancestor probably lived six to 10 generations ago.

Trump refused to make the payment unless he could administer the test “personally”.

What has she said about immigration?

Warren has promised to undo much of the Trump administration’s policies with a new immigration plan, including, decriminalising border crossings.

Warren writes in her summary of the plan that, if elected, she would first seek to pursue her agenda through legislation, but “move forward with executive action if Congress refuses to act.”
