CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — Elizabeth Warren seemed to answer for herself on Sunday the question each campaign is internally debating: How should a Democratic presidential candidate respond to the volatile attacks hurled against her or him by President Trump?

In the first three minutes of her Iowa kickoff as an official presidential candidate — on the morning after the president taunted her in a tweet — Warren did not sidestep the president’s attacks, instead countering to a supportive crowd of about 200 Iowans that President Trump could soon wind up in prison.

“By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president,” she said from the stage. “In fact, he may not even be a free person.”

Over the course of a single weekend, four contenders for the Democratic nomination tried different ways to address Trump on the stump, from taking him head on to ignoring the president altogether.

Trump, for his part, seems eager to engage from the confines of his Twitter account, firing off insults to two of his potential 2020 opponents over the weekend — Sens. Warren, D-Mass., and Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.

After Warren officially announced in Massachusetts on Saturday, Trump referred to her in a tweet as “Pocahontas” and followed: “See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!”

And he then snarkily tweeted that Klobuchar “looked like a Snowman(woman)” during her announcement amid a Minnesota snowstorm on Sunday.

Klobuchar fired back in a tweet of her own on Sunday night, questioning a particular physical feature: “I wonder how your hair would fare in a blizzard?”
