"No," Warren answered when asked on NBC's "Today" show if she was planning a White House bid. "I am running in 2018 for senator from Massachusetts."

Host Matt Lauer appeared to question her response, saying, "A lot of people are already printing up those bumper stickers for 2020 that say, 'She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.' "

Warren did not respond to his comment.
