Tulsi Gabbard, a former congresswoman from Hawaii, declared her departure from the Democratic Party on Tuesday.
Newsmaker: In a video shared to Twitter, she stated, “I can no longer remain in today’s Democratic Party that is completely controlled by an aristocratic cabal of warmongers who are motivated by cowardly weakness, who divide us by racializing every topic and fueling anti-white bigotry.
The big picture: Gabbard, who ran for the Democratic candidacy in the 2020 election, frequently backs policies that diverge from the party’s centre, particularly when it comes to foreign policy.
According to Sara Fischer of Axios, her statements throughout the 2020 campaign caused her to get support from conservative commentators.
