Tulsi Gabbard, a US Politician, Presidential candidate, and military combat veteran, lambasted US President Donald Trump for his decision to provide US military assets and defense support to Saudi Arabia.

Expressing her anger and criticism on this decision, Gabbard said on twitter, “Despicable. Offering to place our military assets under the command of a foreign country—Saudi Arabia—is a disgrace and betrayal of my patriotic brothers and sisters in uniform and to our Constitution.”

Tulsi Gabbard added, “We are not your prostitutes. You are not our pimp.”

Trump “Pimping” US Army

Sharing a video message on her Twitter account, Tulsi Gabbard said, “Yesterday, President Trump offered to place our military, my brothers and sisters in uniform, under the command of Prince Mohammad bin Salman, the dictator of the Islamist Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”

Earlier on 15th September, US President Donald Trump said that the US is “locked and loaded” and waiting for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to provide evidence on who caused the attack.

Trump tweeted, “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!”

Tulsi Gabbard said Trump’s decision to “offer US military assets to the dictator of Saudi Arabia to use as he sees fit is a betrayal of my brothers and sisters in uniform, who are ready to give our lives for our country, not for the Islamist dictator of Saudi Arabia.”

Addressing President Donald Trump, Tulsi Gabbard said, “For you to think you can pimp out our proud servicemen and women to the Prince of Saudi Arabia is disgraceful and it once again shows that you are unfit to serve as our Commander in Chief.”

Saudi Arabia is waging a terrible war in Yemen, which we are supplying despite a clear rebuke by Congress, and Yemeni forces attacked them.

The US Presidential candidate added, “As a member of Congress, as well as, as a soldier, I and all my brothers and sisters in uniform have taken an oath to protect and defend the American people and the Constitution of the United States.”

“There is nothing in our Constitution that gives you the power to go to war without the express consent of Congress, what to speak of giving you the power to offer our military to a foreign power, like the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to use as they wish.”

Addressing the US President, Tulsi Gabbard said, “President Trump, your words and actions are a betrayal of my brothers and sisters in uniform, the American people and our Constitution.

Saudi War in Yemen

In a telephonic conversation with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, US President Donald Trump pledged US military and diplomatic support after Yemen’s Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for the explosive strikes targeting key oil infrastructure.

David Rothschild, a British economist, observed that the United States should not be dragged into a war with Iran, because Saudi Arabia’s conflict with the Houthi rebels will not end unless the Kingdom ends the barbaric war.

Rothschild said, “Saudi Arabia is waging a terrible war in Yemen, which we are supplying despite a clear rebuke by Congress, and Yemeni forces attacked them. If they want to stop attacks on themselves, they should try ending their war in Yemen, not dragging US into an insane war against Iran.”

The British economist added, “Yemen forces have taken responsibility for the attack on Saudi Arabia and Iran has denied responsibly: both of these are more reliable sources than either President Trump or Prince bin Salman, who are desperate for an excuse to drag US into war against Iran.”

Rothschild continued, “Saudi Arabia is not an ally in any sense of the word and it is INSANE that US President would defer to them on what to do in a crisis or go to war (a holy war for radical Sunnis, which has nothing to do with US) on their command.”
