The 2020 Democratic presidential nominees might as well be in a three-ring circus.
Front runner Joe Biden continues to put his foot in his mouth, Elizabeth Warren is becoming a rabid socialist before our very eyes, and the rest of the bunch continues to attack each other instead of focusing on America.
But there’s one nominee that is choosing AMERICA over partisan politics… and has decided to step away from the race.
But it’s not what you think…
As first reported by The Daily Caller, Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said Monday she will be taking two weeks leave from her presidential campaign to report for active duty, as she serves with the Hawaii Army National Guard.
Gabbard will be leaving for two weeks to do a joint training exercise mission in Indonesia, saying she is not worried about how it will affect her presidential campaign and that she is looking forward to serving her country, CBS News reported.
“I’m stepping off of the campaign trail for a couple of weeks and putting on my army uniform to go on a joint training exercise mission in Indonesia,” Gabbard said. In 2017, the Hawaii congresswoman also took two weeks off to report for duty.
“I love our country. I love being able to serve our country in so many ways including as a soldier,” Gabbard continued. “And so while some people are telling me, like gosh this is a terrible time to leave the campaign, can’t you find a way out of it? You know that’s not what this is about.”
Gabbard, who served in Iraq with the Hawaii Army National Guard between 2004 to 2005, has continued to criticize fellow 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris throughout the Democratic debates. Gabbard said that Harris, instead of choosing to “make a difference” in her role as California’s attorney general, “did the exact opposite” by making decisions that “ended up hurting people.”
Like her or not, Gabbard’s move to serve her country should be applauded by everyone.
