Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., called it "nonsense" that President Donald Trump and his administration considered her as a potential challenger in the 2020 presidential election, The Hill reported Saturday.
Warren did little beyond dismissing the claim in an interview on MSNBC on Friday where she stopped short of directly denying she would run for president.
"I wish they would just settle down and do their jobs and stop doing this nonsense," she said. "I am out there doing my job every day. People of Massachusetts sent me to Washington to fight for working families, and that is exactly what I am doing."
Warren continues to be an outspoken critic of the president, and White House aides often rebut her comments in the media. She also has a campaign war chest of $9.2 million for her Senate reelection bid in 2018, The Boston Globe reported last month.
One White House official suggested it would be reckless to discount Warren as a 2020 presidential contender.
"As somebody who is probably, in the hearts and minds of liberal activists, a leader of the party, that voice carries some weight, and we have to respond," a White House official told The Hill earlier this week. "We don't think ignoring her is the right approach."
