Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard says she is running for president in 2020

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard delivers remarks on the second day of the Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center

Tulsi Gabbard said in an interview on Friday that she has chose to run for the White House and will be make a formal announcement over the next week.

Commenters scrambled to call Gabbard, who had spoken out against condemning Assad for his alleged war crimes, on her reconciliatory attitude toward him.

Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), a veteran of the Iraq War and critic of America's interventionist foreign policy, says she will run for president in 2020 with a message of peace. Elizabeth Warren announced on New Year's Eve that she was forming an exploratory committee for a presidential run.

Gabbard, 37, who stepped down as DNC vice chair in 2016 to support Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Party primaries, has drawn flak from her side of the aisle, largely over her stance on gay rights and the U.S. involvement in Syria.

Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is running for President in 2020. By the middle of her second term, she was getting asked if she might one day run for president. She opposed the Obama administration's interventions in Syria as being "against America's national security, global credibility, economic interest, and moral center" and has called for putting an end to the Afghanistan war "as soon as possible". Bernie Sanders are all weighing their own presidential bids and are expected to announce decisions in the upcoming weeks. "There are a lot of challenges that are facing the American people that I'm concerned about and that I want to help solve", she said, citing health care access and climate change among them. Gabbard supported legislation that made it more hard for Syrian refugees to enter the U.S.

4-Year-Old Dies From Complications Linked To Flu In Riverside County
The Canadian health agency reports 43% of the cases in Ontario so far this season are children, compared to about 20% a year ago . These numbers don't paint the full picture of influenza cases, because many people don't require medical treatment or get tested.

In 2017, Gabbard met with Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad and drew widespread criticism. Gabbard remains popular with some liberals but will have serious competition with other candidates on the left flank of the party.

Gabbard was deployed to Iraq in 2005, and she maintains her role as a member of the Hawaii National Guard. "I'm seriously thinking of how I can best be of service to our country", she told Concord Monitor News reporter Paul Steinhauser before meeting with Rockingham County Democrats. Though not Indian American, Gabbard is often considered one by the community because of her professed religion - a Hindu - and there stories that Hindu temples in the Washington-Maryland-Virginia region chimed their bells to coordinate with her swearing in in 2012.

Rep. Gabbard is a Democrat and represents the 2nd Congressional District in Hawaiʻi, which includes the Big Island.

Bernie Sanders' (I-Vt.) 2016 campaign as her campaign manager, CNN reports.
