TULSI vs TRUMP
GABBARD,THE FIRST HINDU ELECTED TO US CONGRESS, TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT
TULSI Gabbard, the first Hindu elected to U.S. Congress and a four-time Democratic lawmaker, has said she will run for President in 2020, becoming the latest member of her party to challenge Republican President Donald Trump. Gabbard, 37, said she will formally announce her candidacy within a week.
The Iraq War veteran is the second woman after Senator Elizabeth Warren to enter the presidential race from the Democratic party. More than 12 Democratic leaders including Indian-origin Senator from California Kamala Harris are expected to announce their White House bid to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.
Gabbard, a four-time Democratic lawmaker in the US House of Representatives from Hawaii, told CNN on Friday, “I have decided to run and will be making a formal announcement within the next week. There are many reasons I'm offering to serve you as President to ensure every American gets the healthcare they need, to bring about comprehensive immigration reform, to make sure we have clean water and clean air for generations to come, to fix our broken criminal justice system, to end the corrupt influence of special interests in Washington, and so much more. But the main reason I'm running has to do with an issue that is central to the rest war and peace.”
If elected, she would be the youngest-ever and first woman President of the US. She would also be the first non-Christian and first Hindu to occupy the top post.
However, American political pundits do not give her much chance at this point.
