Tulsi Gabbard, first Hindu in US Congress, officially enters presidential race

Tulsi Gabbard, first Hindu in US Congress, officially enters presidential race

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-H.I.) officially kicked off her campaign for president on Saturday.

Gabbard has been serving in Hawaii's second congressional district since 2012.

"Join me in putting this spirit of service above self at the forefront and stand up against the forces of greed and corruption", she said.

Gabbard, an Army National Guard veteran who was deployed twice to the Middle East during her military service, has posited herself as an opponent of military intervention in conflict zones.

Florida Politician Resigns After Face-Licking Scandal
Oakley then tried to punch McGrady after she criticized the commissioner's behavior, the report stated. Oakley reportedly said she plans to appeal an ethics violation ruling from the commission.

She remains popular with progressives but has become a target for criticism and is routinely denied the kind of media exposure given to candidates such as Senators Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren.

Gabbard has consistently opposed USA intervention in Syria, going as far as to secretly meet with Syria's president, Bashar al-Assad, in January 2017, sparking fierce criticism from some in her own party. The rally for Gabbard, one of Bernie Sanders' key surrogates in Congress in 2016, is being held one day after Sen.

Politico reported this week that her campaign manager Rania Batrice was set to depart in the coming days after weeks of disarray.

So the story goes: Russian propagandists may or may not have launched a campaign to support Gabbard, who may or may not be a Kremlin asset, but you can't believe that claim because it was made by an American company who lied about shady Russian tactics ... but you can't believe that assessment, because it's been pushed by a journalist compromised by Russia.

On Thursday, Dr Duque declared that there was also an outbreak in central and southern Luzon and in central and western Visayas. The DOH Epidemiology Bureau (DOH EB) has reported almost 200 confirmed cases through January 19 in the region.

Gabbard first confirmed her plans to run last month in an interview with CNN's Van Jones.

Democratic nominating contests begin in February 2020.

The ex-KKK Grand Wizard previously endorsed Donald trump during his 2016 presidential campaign. She comes from a multicultural, multi-religious family and, as a practicing Hindu, was the first Hindu elected to Congress.

Gabbard met with Assad in Syria two years ago, saying at the time she "felt that it's important that if we profess to truly care about the Syrian people, about their suffering, then we've got to be able to meet with anyone that we need to if there is a possibility that we can achieve peace".

Maduro: Venezuelans not ‘beggars,’ give humanitarian aid to Colombians
The 35-year-old argues Maduro was re-elected last year in a sham vote and the country must hold new presidential elections. Ambassador to Colombia Kevin Whitaker said the U.S. will get supplies to the border, and Guaido will take it from there.

The report added, "Since Gabbard announced her intention to run on January 11, there have been at least 20 Gabbard stories on three major Moscow-based English-language websites affiliated with or supportive of the Russian government". She encouraged Trump and congressional Republicans to pull US military forces out of Syria. She has since apologized for her former negative stance against the LGBT community.
