Tulsi Gabbard Announces Presidential Run
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii announced her candidacy for President of the United States earlier today in Honolulu. Speaking to a crowd of her supporters and media at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, Gabbard took aim at America’s foreign policy establishment in her campaign announcement Saturday, blaming politicians in “ivory towers” for U.S. involvement in costly armed conflicts abroad.
“We must stand against powerful politicians from both parties who sit in ivory towers thinking up new wars to wage & new places for people to die. Wasting trillions of dollars, hundreds of thousands of lives, undermining our economy and security, and destroying our middle class,” Gabbard said during her address.
