Tulsi Gabbard lashed out at CNN host Fareed Zakaria in an Instagram post on Wednesday, accusing him of goading President Donald Trump into war with Russia over the Venezuela crisis. Trump has told Russia to get out of crisis-stricken Venezuela.
Gabbard is a Democratic congresswoman from Hawaii and a candidate for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination. She is also a veteran of the Iraq War and is the first American Samoan and first Hindu to be elected to Congress.
“TV talking heads love trying to goad Trump into going to war w/ Russia,” Gabbard wrote in her Instagram post. “Here’s just one example: Fareed Zakaria is trying to get Trump to prove he’s not guilty of appeasement by going to war with Russia over Venezuela.”
