Tulsi Gabbard stands with Trump, hits at bipartisan COVID relief bill

Since President Donald Trump has been in the White House, there have been very few moments when Democrats have agreed with the president on a given issue or demand.

According to the Washington Times, one of those moments is happening toward the end of Trump’s time in the White House, as Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) recently stood with the president on his demands to raise the stimulus payment to Americans in the latest COVID-19 relief bill from $600 to $2,000.

Gabbard was incensed over many aspects of the bipartisan relief bill, slamming Congress for putting together nearly a 6,000 paged document and then dropping it on everyone’s desk on the day of the vote, with little to no time to flesh out exactly what the bill entailed.

Even more upsetting to the Hawaii congresswoman was the $600 direct stimulus payments for Americans. Gabbard called the amount a “slap in the face” and explained that $600, for a majority of struggling Americans, barely pays a couple of small bills, let alone rent or mortgage payments.

“It is an insult and a slap in the face to every single American in this country who is struggling because of this COVID pandemic who is concerned about not being able to pay the rent, about eviction, about whether you’ll have enough to buy groceries or medicine for yourself or your loved ones,” Gabbard said.

Her statements echoed those of Trump’s, who blasted the bill not only for the ridiculous amounts of foreign special interest pork contained within the bill but also the small amount set aside for struggling Americans. The president demanded that the bill be updated to increase the stimulus check amount, while also telling Congress they needed to rework it to remove all of the excess foreign spending.

According to Yahoo, the president previously called the bipartisan relief package a “disgrace.” The massive bill was sent to him while he vacationed in Florida over the Christmas break, with a number of congresspeople urging him to sign the bill, though he hasn’t indicated one way or another if he will.

Gabbard joined a number of House Democrats in siding with the president’s demands to increase the check amount, however, those same Democrats did not seem interested in agreeing to cut out the unreal amount of foreign spending included in the bill.

In the meantime, many Americans will continue to struggle while the president fights for the people and Washington politicians continue to play stupid games.

  1. Congresswoman Gabbard is the only Democrat I have ever contributed to in her campaign; as a life-time Republican and VN Vet I so much respect her views, her independence, and her combat zone history. Hope she stays active and fights for all Americans; as a nation we may survive with more like her.

  2. Tulsi Gabbard is not only “Smart” but she’s very “Pretty,”…too! She’s as Pretty and Smart as Nancy Pelosi is “Ugly” and “Dumb Stupid” … as well!!!!!!!

    1. Ur An idiot. Go get a gender change. She’s probably better then the mother that Brought you up. Huh? Need more liberal school attendance?

  3. I’m sure Nancy Piglousy or should i say Lousypig is having a temper tantrum over T. Gabbard doing that. Maybe her head will explode.. We could never be that lucky!!

  4. She needs to get other Democrats and some Republicans to understand what she now does. Why can’t congress vote on line items rather than entire thousand of pages? We need to change the way we do things like this. Then limit term limits and get voter ID.

    1. Nancy Pelosi’s become no better than a Taliban terrorist holding both Democrat and Republican citizens hostage and remember she stated she’s going to get what she wants and there ain’t no better description of a terrorist

    2. I agree why does it need to be a bill with 6000 pages.?
      There should be a limit of 50 or 100 pages. They put so much other unrelated items in these huge bills hoping no-one will see it.

  5. I always said that Gabbard should have been a liberal republican, you know just a little right of center. She does not have the mind set of a communist liberal demonicrat. I think that she would have been good with Trump, while they are not quite the same I think that they could have worked well together. Their ideas are the same their methods are different. If she were a republican she might have been a good VP for Trump.
    Just as Romney is a Rhino, I think Gabbard is a Dino, but what do I know.

    1. My thoughts are somewhat in line with yours. Tulsi belongs in the Republican party. I know it is uncommon for a veteran to turn their back on the country that we served, unless you’re a dirtbag. I certainly have more respect for Tulsi Gabbard than I do for Romney, the backstabber.

  6. McConnell are you really a republican? You always seem to be pals with the Democrats and do what they want. You are A DISGRACE . We will see you voted out in 2022 or 2024.

  7. I pray that President Trump does not sign that bill. How come other countries are helping their people with stimulus checks of $2000.00 and up. So why cant you help us with more money, obviously these other countries dont need our help money wise(no excuses)plus that is the taxpayers money(OURS) not the dems, rinos, congress, and the rest of you corrupt people. You want to help these countries, fork over your own damn money which you stole from the taxpayers(US).

    1. The bill calls for up to $1800 to illegal immigrants….did anyone hear about that?! Americans/legal immigrants only get a flat $600.

        1. I did hear that as well! That’s a BIDEN thing when he opens the BORDER for all to enter! Who else is paying this watch your tax payer $$$$$ at work! They all including Biden & his OBAMA staff he had. I said if he got office it would be OBAMA’s 3rd term!

  8. Until this country stands up and pushes that gas bag out of the speaker position, Americans will suffer. She does not give a damn about the average American. Everything is all about politics with her. That’s obvious.

  9. I hear that the regular dems want to start a new party. With out the radical leftists. They want a democratic party that they recognize. They don’t like all of this social BS that the communists are trying to shove down their throat. They think that the communists should have started their own party instead of trying to hi-jack theirs. They think people like AOC and the squids are not democrats they are commies that have use the democrat party to conceal what their real agenda is, and get democrats to support them before they know what they are. Now the democrats must reorganize a new party, and leave the radicals to rot on the vine.

  10. Thank you Rep Gabbard this is the way the parties are suppose to work, for the good of the people and country. With more democrats like you both parties could get more accomplished for the US,

    Thank You

  11. Congress was going to send Americans 6 hundred dollar Stimulus Checks, while sending 1.7 billion dollars to Egypt, and hundreds of millions, and billions to 3rd world countries, where Dictators can line their pockets!
    They want to send 751 million dollars to Pakistan, and 3 million dollars to make sure Russians go to college.

    Pelosi has made Americans suffer, because she did not want to release any money, while Trump was still in office!

    Any Congress person that voted for this Bill, should be put out of office, it does Not matter what state you live in, vote them out!

  12. There are Republicans in the House, (Kevin McCarthy), and Senate, (Roy Blunt (RINO, MO), Mitch McConnell (RINO, KY), and John Thune (RINO, South Dakota) who oppose giving American citizens direct payments of $2,000 under the Covid-19 stimulus bill. However, they never opposed giving billions of dollars to foreign countries, or giving payments to illegal aliens. Something tells me they are protecting earmarks that will help them monetarily and politically. This is what is wrong with our country under the Democrats and it looks like McConnell and Thune want to go back to that time when they controlled everything and allowed earmarks. This is not right and must be corrected. These RINOs are, all of a sudden became brave because (like McConnell who just won reelection has become brazen with his corruption of our country. If he had this attitude before he was reelected, he would be gone.

  13. THE 900 BILLION DOLLARS IN THIS BILL WOULD GIVE EVER AMERICAN CITIZEN OVER 20 MILLION DOLLARS, DIVIDE 360 MILLLION AMERICANS INTO 900 BILLION DOLLARS. OH, THE DEMS AND SOME REPUBLICANS HAD MUCH RATHER GIVE IT TO FORIEGN COUNTRIES FOR POSSIBLE KICK BACKS. HOW LOW ARE WE CITIZENS GOING TO ALLOW THE PEOPLE WE ELECT KEEP STEALING OUR TAX MONEY AND GIVING IT TO COUNTRIES THAT HATE US????? WAKE UP AND START A NEW PARTY, THE MAGA PARTY AND GET RID OF BOTH DEMS AND REPS.

    1. Bad math, Walt. $900B would be appx $2500 per person, citizen or not. Still it’s money that has to be borrowed from the future generations and added to the appx $82000 we each owe already. Glad I’m old and won’t live to see the outcome of fiscal stupidity on a grand scale.

  14. NO BILL SHOULD HAVE ANY FOREIGN AID IN IT> NOW USE TAX PAYERS MONEY FOR TAX PAYER AND THE USA > CONGRESSMAN SHOULD VOTE FOR FOREIGN AID AT ANY KIND>:IF THEY DO STOP THEIR PAY>:

  15. To put money for foreign aid into the bill is a slap in the face to Americans who are without jobs, food, money to pay utility bills etc. People now face the possibility of losing their homes and their businesses. My thanks to Representative Gabbard. I was beginning to believe that here was no one in congress that cared about the people who elected them to office. Maybe we should cut the pay of those in the Congress and Senate who do not care about us. How can a bill of 6000 pages be put on Congress members desk and expected to be voted on when they haven’t read what is in the bill. This is absolutely insane. Wake up America and quit voting these people in office that are not working for you.

  16. How about this, why not us a true American peoples get together and we have our own power of law and governor etc. democrats and some republicans are damaging our country. We can set up our own plan.

    Let me know. Let us be wise and strong. So we can have Trump as our president. He is very smart man

  17. All, listen up. I just noticed about the covid/pandemics. The reason why that covid/pandemic s are killing the Americans peoples which is for older/ill health issues for people. The democrats and that nasty monster Pelosi want to rid of them bcuz they want to bring china/immigrants and other foreign people in our American country. They want to wipe US Americans out soon. Look what Biden/Harris say about that. They have mentioned before. Trump is fighting for Americans people. This why China is taking over the American. So, the capital was plan by china, democrats, blm and antics gangs. Please Americans people stand up for your right . Do not let democrats destroy you and our American country
