Ms Warren is running for the Democratic nomination for president
Ms Warren waded into the contentious debate during a town hall hosted by CNN, saying that she would take action as president to remove the divisive symbol — regardless of the argument that the flag celebrates heritage, not hate.
“As a presidential hopeful, do you have any plans on addressing the removal, or lack thereof, of the reminders of the nation’s dark past, or have any plans on preserving the nation’s history in a way that explains it in a more education sense versus showing praise to the losing side?” an audience member asked.
Ms Warren responded forcefully, saying she would “support removing Confederate celebrations from federal land and putting them in museums, where they belong”.
The Confederate flag has re-emerged in national debate over the past few years as advocates have urged leaders to remove the symbol, which was flown by the Confederate army during the Civil War.
