Democratic presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard doubled down on her attacks on President Donald Trump’s ‘disgraceful’ allegiance to Saudi Arabia, eviscerating his ‘betrayal’ of her fellow soldiers and the US Constitution.

RNA - Singling out Trump’s statement that the US was “locked and loaded” but “waiting to hear from the Kingdom … under what terms we would proceed”, Gabbard slammed the US president for “offering to place our military assets under the command of a foreign country”, RT reported.

Gabbard called out the “betrayal of my brothers and sisters in uniform, the American people, and the Constitution” in a video posted to Twitter on Monday, reminding her Commander-in-Chief that she and her fellow soldiers took an oath to defend the Constitution - which doesn’t allow the president to offer up the country’s military on a silver platter to any foreign nation willing to pay for the privilege.

"We are not your prostitutes. You are not our pimp," she noted.

The clip echoed an earlier tweet in which she reminded Trump that “having our country act as Saudi Arabia’s b**** is not ‘America First’”, and triggered an outpouring of support – and scorn – on social media.

Trump stated earlier on Monday that “it certainly would look like” Iran was behind the attack on Saudi Arabia’s largest oil processing facility, a strike which Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah has claimed as its own, but also claimed he “doesn’t want war with anybody”.
