Democrats have been highly critical of Trump’s decision to maintain the US/Saudi alliance following the CIA’s conclusion that the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi was ordered by Saudi Arabian leader Mohammad bin Salman. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) sent the following tweet on Wednesday.
Hey @realdonaldtrump: being Saudi Arabia’s bitch is not “America First.”

May I remind her of this?:
President Obama reminding Medvedev that once the election is over, he would have more flexility.
Or how about this?
Ransom or Repayment? US sends $400 million to Iran
And the 5 Guantanamo detainees swapped for Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl.
And let’s not forget about when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Bashar al-Asaad a “reformer”?
Does anyone recall when former (and future?) U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi paid a visit to Bashar al-Assad. This move was “criticized by the White House as undermining American efforts to isolate the hard-line Arab country. Pelosi said Assad assured her of his willingness to engage in peace talks with Israel, and that she and other members of her congressional delegation raised their concern about militants crossing from Syria into Iraq, as well the Israeli soldiers kidnapped by the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah and the Palestinian group Hamas.”
And finally, I’d like to remind Rep. Gabbard about her virtuous remark when she declined to join 169 other House Representatives in signing a November 16, 2016 to Trump denouncing his nomination of “notorious white nationalist” Stephen Bannon to be his “chief strategist,” she told supporters:
“I made a decision very early on that I would not get into name-calling because I don’t know what it accomplishes.”
US Presidents and officials have had to deal with corrupt, murderous world leaders throughout history. So, please contain your outrage.
