President-elect Donald Trump is set to meet with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) on Monday. There are some indicators that the meeting will regard a position in Trump’s administration, though no official report exists.
Gabbard made headlines during the presidential election when she stepped down as vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee in order to endorse and support Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
“I think it’s most important for us, as we look at our choices as to who our next commander in chief will be, is to recognize the necessity to have a commander in chief who has foresight, who exercises good judgment,” she announced.
Gabbard voted for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton over Trump but has no problems working across the aisle. She is one of the first female combat veterans to serve in Congress, alongside now Senator-elect Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.). Gabbard is also the first Hindu to serve in Congress.
