Gabbard Slams “Failed Legacy” of Hillary Clinton

Two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has repeatedly chosen to insert herself in politics, to the chagrin of Americans on both sides of the aisle. While Republicans have been sick of Clinton for quite some time, it appears as though Democrats are also starting to feel the same way. Earlier this month, liberal TV host Bill Maher made headlines after imploring the Clinton family to “go away.”

Another left-winger to take issue with Hillary Clinton is 2020 Democrat Tulsi Gabbard. Weeks ago, Clinton started a feud with Gabbard after branding her as “a favorite of the Russians” and claiming, without evidence, that Gabbard is being “groomed” to run as a third-party candidate.

These accusations prompted Gabbard to absolutely eviscerate Clinton by citing her as the “queen of warmongers” and the “personification of the rot” within the Democrat Party.

However, it appears as though Gabbard’s censure of Clinton is just beginning. In an opinion piece for the Wall Street Journal, Gabbard professes that by running for president, she can “defeat Trump” and “the Clinton Doctrine.”

A Close Look at Gabbard’s Op-Ed

Throughout Gabbard’s piece, the 2020 Democrat notes that she constantly faces inquiries about whether or not Russia is using her as a tool to “undermine” the United States of America. She then goes on to provide deeper insight into her recent clash with Hillary Clinton and why it’s simply more than just a “petty spat.”

Per Gabbard’s own words, she and Hillary Clinton have “a serious contrast in views” regarding which Democrat ought to challenge President Trump in a general election. After noting Clinton’s previous loss to the current president, Gabbard professes that many of the current pool of Democrat candidates would follow in the footsteps of Clinton’s policies.

Gabbard cited the aforementioned policies as overhauling governments that are unliked by America, squandering taxpayer funds, inflicting harm overseas and placing the security of this nation at risk. Then, the 2020 Democrat vowed that under a Gabbard presidency, she would “lead with a robust, positive foreign policy” fueled by “cooperation” and “diplomacy.”
