Roll Call reports:
Replying directly to Trump on Twitter, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) slammed the president for, in her view, seeking marching orders with regard to a potential strike against Iran following the attack on a Saudi oil plant.
“Trump awaits instructions from his Saudi masters,” Gabbard wrote. “Having our country act as Saudi Arabia’s bitch is not ‘America First.’”
Gabbard has faced her own criticisms on Middle East policy. In particular, she’s come under fire for meeting with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad in 2017.
