Tulsi Gabbard is the Democratic party At-Large representative from Hawaii. Gabbard is a member of the far left Congressional Progressive Caucus. She was an unelected Superdelegate to the 2016 Democratic National Convention pledged to Bernie Sanders.[1] Gabbard has accused fellow Democrats of risking nuclear holocaust with the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.[2]

Gabbard announced her candidacy for the 2020 presidential election in January 2019. She is a supporter of the authoritarian Green New Deal and Medicare for All bills and has won the coveted David Duke endorsement.[3] Gabbard has been criticized for homophobic remarks.[4]

Foreign policy

Gabbard was one of 50 Democrats who signed a letter authored by California communist Barbara Lee calling on President Obama not to escalate the Syrian war[5] after Obama provided covert assistance to the Islamic State.[6]

On MSNBC's Morning Joe, Gabbard had this exchange with reporter Kasi Hunt:
Hunt: Do you think Assad is our enemy?
Gabbard: Assad is not the enemy of the United States because Syria does not pose a direct threat to the United States.
Hunt: What do you say to Democratic voters who watched you go over there, and what do you say to military members who have been deployed repeatedly in Syria pushing back against Assad?
Gabbard: People who have been deployed to Syria have been there focused on their mission, which has been to defeat ISIS. Our troops have not gone to Syria to wage yet another costly, destructive regime change war.[7]

Gabbard has highlighted her noninterventionist America First foreign policy. Gabbard said, "When it comes to the war against terrorists, I'm a hawk. When it comes to counterproductive wars of regime change, I'm a dove."[8]

  6. *Obama Secret Syria Order Authorizes Support For Rebels, By Mark Hosenball, Reuters, 08/01/2012; Reuters reported
    under provisions of the presidential finding, the United States was collaborating with a secret command center operated by Turkey and its allies.
    Last week, Reuters reported that, along with Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Turkey had established a secret base near the Syrian border to help direct vital military and communications support to Assad’s opponents. This “nerve center” is in Adana, a city in southern Turkey about 60 miles (100 km) from the Syrian border, which is also home to Incirlik, a U.S. air base where U.S. military and intelligence agencies maintain a substantial presence.
    Turkey’s moderate Islamist government has been demanding Assad’s departure with growing vehemence. Turkish authorities are said by current and former U.S. government officials to be increasingly involved in providing Syrian rebels with training and possibly equipment.
    European government sources said wealthy families in Saudi Arabia and Qatar were providing significant financing to the rebels. Senior officials of the Saudi and Qatari governments have publicly called for Assad’s departure.
