"Look forward to being able to get into this and to talk about it in depth when we make our announcement".

In an announcement on December 31, 2018, US Senator Elizabeth Warren stated that she has formed an exploratory committee for a presidential run.

Tulsi Gabbard says she has made a decision to run for president and will hold a formal announcement within the next week.

Hawaii Island's Congresswoman, Tulsi Gabbard, has announced that she will be running for President of the United States in 2020.

According to Gabbard, 37, her campaign would primarily focus on "the issue of war and peace". Gabbard said she was concerned about a number of challenges facing the American people that she wants to help solve, including health care access, criminal justice reform and climate change.

An Iraq war veteran and member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Gabbard is also the first Hindu member of Congress.

Emery: Arsenal can not make January deals
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega during the window, as well as defensive reinforcements. He added: "The club is working, telling me each moment different situations can happen".

Rania Batrice, who was a deputy campaign manager for Sanders in 2016, said she will be Gabbard's campaign manager.

"I stepped down from the legislature where I served, and headed to a war zone", Gabbard recalled at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

Asked a year ago whether she would still consider running if Senator Sanders ran, Ms Gabbard said Senator Sanders is a friend and she did not know what his plans were. Bernie Sanders, are now weighing whether to run for president and are expected to announce their decision soon. Though Gabbard has been aligned with Trump over some aspects of Middle East policy ― including whether the USA should provide support for Syrian militias fighting Assad ― she recently called Trump "Saudi Arabia's bitch" for his failure to react to the Saudi killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Ever since her 2017 visit to Syria, Gabbard has been condemned for daring to seek firsthand accounts rather than blindly trusting the MSM narrative, so on Friday the pundits were again off to the races, with fresh accusations of Assad-sympathizing.

In response, Gabbard wrote on Twitter that "being Saudi Arabia's bitch is not 'America First'". She quickly established herself as a voice for her party's left on domestic issues and a critic of foreign military intervention.

Gabbard was deployed to Iraq in 2005, and she maintains her role as a member of the Hawaii National Guard. "I'm seriously thinking of how I can best be of service to our country", she told Concord Monitor News reporter Paul Steinhauser before meeting with Rockingham County Democrats.
