Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tusli Gabbard, D-Hawaii took President Trump to job over his response to assaults on Saudi oil fields, likening his wait-and-see method to being “Saudi Arabia’s b—-.”
Trump tweeted earlier Sunday that the U.S. was “ready to listen to from the Kingdom as to who they consider was the reason for the assault, and below what phrases we’d proceed!”
“Trump awaits directions from his Saudi masters,” Gabbard tweeted in response. “Having our nation act as Saudi Arabia’s b—- is just not ‘America First.’”
The assault on the world’s largest oil processing facility and a close-by oil subject in Saudi Arabia had been hit by drone assaults early Saturday by Iranian-backed Yemeni rebels.

Gabbard made the identical off-color comment final 12 months after Trump stood by Saudi Arabia amid backlash for the homicide of author Jamal Khashoggi.
“It may very effectively be that the Crown Prince had information of this tragic occasion – perhaps he did and perhaps he didn’t!” Trump mentioned in a press release that outlined the significance of a robust U.S.-Saudi relationship.
Gabbard, evidently not impressed, tweeted: “Hey @realdonaldtrump: being Saudi Arabia’s b—- is just not ‘America First.’
Gabbard, an Iraq Struggle veteran and member of the Hawaii Nationwide Guard, has confronted criticism for assembly with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad in January 2017.
