Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has criticized President Trump in reaction to the attacks on Saudi Arabia for threatening military action against Iran.
“Trump’s Saudi masters are awaiting instructions,” Gabbard tweeted.
“To have our nation behave as the bitch of Saudi Arabia is not’ America First.'” Mediaite.com reports: Gabbard’s tweet came in reaction to Trump stating the U.S. is “locked and loaded” in reaction to the Saudis assault.
“The supply of oil to Saudi Arabia has been assaulted,” Trump wrote. “There’s reason to think that we understand the guilty, that we’re locked and loaded based on the verification, but we’re waiting to hear from the Kingdom who they think was the cause of the assault, and how we’d continue!”The supply of oil to Saudi Arabia has been assaulted. There’s reason to think we understand the guilty, are locked and loaded depending on the verification, but we’re waiting to hear from the Kingdom who they think was the cause of this assault, and how we’d continue!
Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!
