Congressman Tulsi Gabbard has officially entered the battle for the US presidency

The member of the House of Representatives of the American Congress Tulsi Gabbard (Democrat from Hawaii) said on Saturday to join the fight for the post of the President of the United States in the 2020 elections. The speech of the legislator in Honolulu (Hawaii) was broadcast on her Twitter.

Against regime change

“We have to fight back the current administration, which claims to believe in the slogan” America first”, but sells our soldiers, our weapons and the interests to those country that will pay more, ” said Gabbard. She stressed that she intends to oppose “politicians from both parties” who “are thinking about what new wars unleash and where people should start to die.”

“The President the US Donald Trump during his campaign opposed wars with the aim of regime change, but now he fulfills the wishes of the neoconservatives that surround him. He calls for wars in order to change the regimes against which he allegedly spoke, this time – in Venezuela and in Iran,” she said.

“Every dollar we spend on wars to change regimes or on a new cold war, on this nuclear arms race, is a dollar out of our pocket,” the legislator stressed. She noted that these funds “should be spent on meeting the real, urgent needs” of the US residents.

On the brink of nuclear war

The legislator recalled about false warning of a missile approaching the Hawaiian Islands on January 2018, which caused mass panic among local residents. “While powerful politicians are beating the drums of war and escalating tensions between the US and nuclear powers like Russia and China, the front line has come close to our doorstep. Because we are on the verge of a nuclear war, ” she stated.

Gabbard noted that, as the President of the United States,” she will work to stop the new cold war” and reduce the risk of nuclear conflict. The legislator said that she intends to build cooperation with other States “on the basis of cooperation, not conflict.” “I will find the courage to meet with both friends and opponents in the interests of peace and our national security,” said a member of Congress. – Because if we do not have the courage to meet with those with whom we do not agree, the only alternative is war”.

Gabbard on January 11 said that he intends to run for the President in the 2020 elections, but the official entry into the race announced just now. The legislator, who served in Iraq for two years, is a member of the foreign Affairs Committee of the Lower House of Congress. Gabbard fundamentally opposed Washington’s military intervention in the Affairs of sovereign States and in 2017 was sharply criticized in the United States for a meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad
