Tulsi Gabbard addresses the Democratic National Convention

“Your challenge is clear,” Gabbard said to party members. “We are all Americans, our diversity is who we are, our strength is who we are. Whether you’re Sikh, Filipino, African American, Muslim or Christian, whether you’re gay, black, Latino, Asian or LGBT, whoever you are, you are an American. I challenge all of you to see that we are all Americans.”

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard told fellow Democrats at the close of their convention in Atlanta they must “stop trying to divide us and let’s go out and speak to each other” now that the party has triumphed.

The Hawaii Democrat spoke to reporters after the convention concluded, a day after the “blue wave” that defied expectations and swept Democrats into control of the House. Gabbard predicted “overwhelming results” in November’s midterm elections, saying that there was “huge hope” that Democrats will take control of the Senate and take back the White House from President Donald Trump in 2020.

Gabbard, who is an outspoken ally of the administration, was noncommittal about backing Hillary Clinton in 2020. Asked about a potential 2020 bid, she said, “I’m thinking about how I can do my part in speaking out about what the Democrats believe and why we’re here.”
