With the presidential inauguration rapidly approaching, it’s time for Donald Trump to build his ultimate dream team! Up for his cabinet consideration is a devoted Democrat by the name of Tulsi Gabbard. Here’s everything you need to know about the politician!
1. She’s a Bernie Sanders supporter!
As a proud left-winger, it’s not really a surprise that Tulsi Gabbard, 35, is a Bernie Sanders supporter. What IS shocking, however, is how this pure-blooded Democrat found herself eligible to join Donald Trump‘s cabinet team. Tulsi actually left her position as vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee so she could endorse Bernie — that’s how much she loves him!
2. So, what is she doing with Donald?
GOOD QUESTION! Well, apparently Donald told Tulsi some things she wanted to hear during a meeting that took place at Trump Tower in NYC on Nov. 21. After their pow-wow, Tulsi revealed that she’s not only willing, but vowing to work with Donald on the issues that matter most to the American people, like the “policies regarding Syria” and “our fight against terrorist groups like al-Qaeda.”
3. She’s still undecided.
Even though Tulsi is standing behind Donald, that doesn’t mean she’s officially joining his administration. Tulsi has not commented yet on whether or not she’ll be a part of his cabinet, but when it comes to quantity of American lives, she refuses to “play politics.” Meaning, if she does join Donald, it will have everything to do with the American people and nothing to do with the titles of Democrat versus Republican.
4. Expect the unexpected.
Many were shocked by Tulsi’s decision to meet with Donald on the Nov. 21, but this isn’t the first time she’s made jaws drop. Tulsi is actually the first-EVER American Samoan/Hindu member to join the United States Congress. She’s also one of the first combat veterans to join.
5. She’s not afraid of a bully!
Tulsi is reportedly under “serious consideration” to join Donald’s administration, which is kind of good news because she’s certainly not afraid to stand up to him! We need someone like that in office! “I will not hesitate to express that disagreement,” she revealed to ABC News. You go, girl!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Tulsi will end up joining Donald’s cabinet?
