Rep. Tulsi Gabbard D-Hawaii speaks during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia

Democratic congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, an Iraq war veteran who met dictator Bashar al-Assad in Syria during that country's devastating civil war, has said that she is launching a United States presidential bid. "I look forward to being able to get into this and to talk about it in depth when we make our announcement", Gabbard said.

Who will run her campaign: Rania Batrice, former deputy campaign manager for Bernie Sanders in 2016, will be Gabbard's campaign manager.

Gabbard listed criminal justice reform, climate change and health care as issues that she was interested in solving.

She has also courted controversy by picking a fight with Hawaii Sen. That led to more critical attention to Gabbard's foreign policy views, though a few months into the Trump administration, she rejected praise from the president and his allies.

President Trump has announced to seek his re-election. "Maybe he did and maybe he didn't".

Gabbard was born in American Samoa to a Catholic father, Hawaii State Senator Mike Gabbard, and her mother, Carol Porter Gabbard, is of Caucasian descent who professes Hinduism.

That same year, a woman in a coma at a home in MA gave birth to a baby girl prematurely and with severe brain damage. Earlier this week, the chief executive of the corporation in charge of the home resigned over the case.


If elected, the 37-year-old lawmaker, who is known to surf the waters of her native Hawaii, would be the youngest president in USA history. Her participation in the race will raise the profile of some important issues, for which libertarians should be glad. "We must end all USA support for Saudi Arabia's genocidal war in Yemen now".

Gabbard drew heavy criticism when she met secretly with Assad in Damascus in 2017 during a fact-finding mission that also took her to the decimated city of Aleppo.

US Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA on 31 December announced she had formed an exploratory committee for a White House run in what is expected to be a crowded Democratic primary field before the November 2020 presidential election. On New Year's Eve, Sen. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee at the end of past year.

She is the first Hindu member of Congress and its first Samoan American member, and she sits on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

"Tulsi Gabbard has an even bigger problem than her lack of experience - it's that she has no base of support", RNC spokesman Michael Ahrens wrote in a statement released Friday evening. "Liberals think she's too conservative, conservatives think she's too liberal, and just about everyone thinks her coziness with Bashar al-Assad is disturbing".
