Gabbard: Trump decision of Soleimani Strike ‘Undermines Our National Security’


2020 Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) said President Trump decision to launch the airstrike that killed Iran’s top military commander, Qassem Soleimani last week is “undermining our national security interest.”

Gabbard added that the killing of Soleimani was an “assassination” because it was an “illegal and an unconstitutional act of war.”

“The Commander-in-Chief needs to make decisions based on what’s the best national security interest of our country,” Gabbard said. “The decision that he made is undermining our national security interest. It was an assassination and this attack was unconstitutional and illegal act of war by this president.”
