U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard had a message for President Donald Trump: “Being Saudi Arabia’s b**** is not ‘America First.’”
Then gets slammed hard by Rep. Adam Kinzinger: “And how would you describe your fondness for Assad? Asking for the 500,000 Syrians he murdered … including the 50,000 children who gasped their last breath because of him.”
Trump had said, “If we abandon Saudi Arabia, it would be a terrible mistake.” He added, “We may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi. In any case, our relationship is with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They have been a great ally in our very important fight against Iran.”
As The Washington Examiner pointed out, Gabbard has some shaky ground she’s standing on, considering she met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in January 2017 and later publicly doubted claims that Assad had used chemical weapons on his own citizens. Gabbard’s defense of Assad came in the face of the U.S. and its allies agreeing that Assad had indeed used chemical weapons on his own people. Additionally, Syria is in league with Iran, a vehement foe of Saudi Arabia.
Gabbard’s vulgar attack on Trump triggered Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) to fire back, “And how would you describe your fondness for Assad? Asking for the 500,000 Syrians he murdered … including the 50,000 children who gasped their last breath because of him.” More
More proof Democrats just spout off at the mouth for whatever feels good at the moment… This is another “rising star” of the left? The lack of self-awareness is staggering. She’s putting party before country, as usual. Gabbard needs to go back and do more research, study and learn more before she makes a comment.
Not making other countries problems our problems IS America first. Sad what happened and it's not right, but we shouldn't get involved in every terrible thing a country or kingdom does. We should protect US #BuildTheWall
