Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) slammed President Donald Trump for turning the nation into “Saudi Arabia’s bitch” after he assured the kingdom that the U.S. is “locked and loaded” as it waits to hear who may be behind an attack on its oil supply.
“Trump awaits instructions from his Saudi masters,” the Democratic presidential candidate tweeted Sunday. “Having our country act as Saudi Arabia’s bitch is not ‘America First.’”
Gabbard, a member of the Hawaii National Guard who served in Iraq, has used the “Saudi Arabia’s bitch” insult against Trump before, calling him out in November for defending the nation following the slaying of U.S.-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
She has been an outspoken opponent of U.S. military intervention in conflicts surrounding regime change.
