Tulsi Gabbard: Impeachment "Increased" Likelihood of Trump Re-Election

2020 Democrat Tulsi Gabbard has maintained her campaign as the various primaries and caucus elections take place across America.

Thus far, Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada have voted accordingly. While the Iowa results remain debatable, 2020 rival Bernie Sanders won big time in both New Hampshire and Nevada. Next up is the South Carolina primary and the Super Tuesday states which will vote on March 3.

As of late, Gabbard has adopted a different approach to her campaign, spending time in Utah, rather than South Carolina like other candidates. On Friday, the war veteran also wrote an op-ed for Fortune. In her piece, Gabbard weighed in with her thoughts on the unsuccessful impeachment sham, stating that it boosted the likelihood of President Trump winning a second term in office.

Gabbard on Failed Impeachment Proceedings and Probability of Trump’s Re-Election

The 2020 Democrat kicked off her written piece by opining that a second term of President Trump would “be a disaster” and thereby warrants the necessity for Trump to be “defeated” in this election.

She then continued, stating that Congressional Democrats contributed to the likelihood of a second Trump term by forcing their impeachment through government. At multiple points in her op-ed, the war veteran also states that she always believed the impeachment sham would ultimately result in Trump’s acquittal.

However, Gabbard’s piece for Fortune provides a closer look at her perspective regarding appropriate leadership. According to the war veteran, effective and competent leaders ought to employ “thoughtfulness and foresight” as influencing factors for the decisions they make, rather than pure emotion.

Citing foreign policy as an example, Gabbard professed that political leaders have a tendency to just “do something” on issues, in spite of the negative, subsequent aftermath.

More on Foresight from Gabbard

A recurring theme throughout Gabbard’s piece was the importance of foresight. The war veteran ultimately stated that Democrats’ lack of foresight in pushing impeachment proceedings will engender the very outcome they didn’t want.

Towards the end of her op-ed for Fortune, Gabbard cited foresight in politics as being guided by the “best interests of the American people” rather than one’s own political interests. The 2020 Democrat then explained that her interest in running for president is not only guided by foresight, but also by the interest in bringing in “new leadership” and rising above “shallow partisan divides.”
