Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard attacked President Donald Trump on Twitter when she responded to a tweet of his regarding hearing from Saudi Arabia before proceeding in the oil situation.
The oil supply was attacked in Saudi Arabia and President Trump believes he knows who was responsible. He is prepared to take action on the culprit. However, Trump is waiting to hear from Saudi Arabia before proceeding. This statement was much to the dismay of presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard, who tweeted back at the president.
Rep. Gabbard stated that waiting for further instructions from Saudi Arabia made America look like “Saudi Arabia’s bitch.” According to Gabbard, being a servant of Saudi Arabia is not America first. The congresswoman went on to say it would be a giving-away of our sovereignty if the president was meaning that America should wait on Riyadh to determine how to proceed.
While the possibility remains that President Donald Trump did not actually mean what he said, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is not buying that notion. “If Trump didn't mean what he said when he tweeted that out -- under what terms we would proceed -- then he needs to clarify what he said and actually say what he meant,” Gabbard said.
Gabbard went on to say that Trump has not made any sort of clarification, so it is safe to say that he meant what he said.
It is safe to assume that presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard is not a big fan of the president’s recent remarks.
