Presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) has been unsparing in her criticism of President Donald Trump for, in her opinion, waiting for marching orders from Saudi Arabia on potential military action against Iran. On Wednesday, one Fox News anchor confronted the congresswoman — arguing that she went too far in her criticism.
In a spirited battle on Fox News, Neil Cavuto pressed Gabbard for her recent comments — among which she stated that the president is turning the U.S. into “Saudi Arabia’s bitch.” Cavuto led off by asking Gabbard what she meant by saying “you’re not our pimp” to Trump on Twitter.
“Look Neil, I’m a soldier,” Gabbard said. “And I took an oath as a soldier as well as a member of Congress to support and defend our Constitution of the United States, to serve the American people. And it’s a huge disgrace to hear our commander-in-chief basically put us in a position —the American people, our men and women in uniform, our military assets — in a position where we are servants of the Saudi kingdom. Standing by and awaiting their orders on how we should proceed.”
