Tulsi Gabbard Defends Trump’s Firing Of Col. Vindman

Newsweek reports:

In breaking with some of her opponents for the Democratic presidential nomination, Representative Tulsi Gabbard defended President Donald Trump’s decision to fire Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman.

Fox News host Neil Cavuto asked Gabbard if she agreed with the comparison of Vindman’s firing to October 20, 1973, when President Richard Nixon’s attorney general and deputy attorney general resigned instead of firing Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox.

“Ultimately, whether people like it or not, there are consequences to elections and the president has, within his purview, to make the decisions about who he’d like serving in his Cabinet,” Gabbard told Cavuto.
