Sen. Elizabeth Warren says Democrats running for president will have to do more than campaign on an anti-Trump message if they want to take back the White House in 2020.

The presidential hopeful from Massachusetts told about 500 backers at a rally in a high school gym in Reno on Saturday the challengers who want to defeat President Donald Trump must talk about their own vision for the country’s future.

She said, “If your message is ‘not-Trump,’ it’s not going to work.”

Warren touted her plan to invest $500 billion over the next 10 years to create affordable housing for low-income families.

She also said that legalizing marijuana nationally would be a great way to begin to remove racism from the U.S. justice system. She ways minorities and whites use pot at about the same rate but people of color are much more likely to be arrested for smoking it.
