In the two videos above, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren discusses the hottest topics in American politics today with “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert. The two touch on the Republican tax plan and the 2016 Democratic primaries, as well as the current outpouring of sexual harassment allegations.

Colbert also asks Warren if she’ll consider running in 2020 for president, to which the senator replies, “Look, we’ve gotta be really careful. … We’ve got fights in front of us right now. We can’t play this game of ‘every four years we’re going to get focused and we’re going to get active in politics.’ “
