Rep. Tulsi Gabbard gets 2020 endorsement from David Duke

Tulsi Gabbard has been criticised for being sympathetic to Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and Russian leader Vladimir Putin, which has seen her clash with a number of fellow Democrats.

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". "There is no battle we can not win", said Gabbard, who is not of Indian descent but comes from a Hindu family in Hawaii.

Gabbard officially announced her campaign last week after serving as one of Hawaii's representatives since 2013.

She told the crowd gathered she was running against "powerful, self-serving politicians and greedy corporations", and vowed to restore "dignity, honor and respect to the presidency".

She is now serving as the Congresswoman from Hawaii's 2nd District and has previously served in the combat zone in Iraq, following which she was deployed in Kuwait.

Gabbard, an Iraq War veteran who gained national prominence in 2016 as an outspoken supporter of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders' 2016 campaign, will run for president as an anti-interventionalist Democrat who supports a populist economic agenda.

Gabbard serves on the House Armed Services Committee where she is a strong advocate for veterans, our service members, and making smart strategic decisions that best secure our nation. "I look forward to being able to get into this and to talk about it in depth when we make our announcement". Before even making her candidacy official, she posted a video and series of tweets apologizing for a previous lack of support for LGBTQ issues. "I'm deeply sorry for having said and believed them", she said.

"I believe that she really has made that change and she'll fight for the progressive values for all people".

Now in her fourth term in Congress, Gabbard says she brings with her a broad range of real world experience, a storehouse of personal strength, and tested leadership.

Also, she has called for the US recognition of the Armenian Genocide on many occasions.

News published a predictably viral story Friday, claiming that "experts who track websites and social media linked to Russian Federation have seen stirrings of a possible campaign of support for Hawaii Democrat Tulsi Gabbard".

The Hawaii congresswoman and Democratic presidential candidate, appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe", dodged when asked to more specifically categorize Assad's relationship to the United States but admitted "it's possible" Assad has used chemical weapons on his own people.
