Tulsi Gabbard announces 2020 presidential run to take on Trump

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard D-Hawaii greets supporters Tuesday Nov. 6 2018 in Honolulu

"He asked me bluntly whether I'll run for president, and I told him straight: I've made a decision to run and will make a formal announcement next week".

Here are all the Democrats who have announced they will be running.

According to Gabbard, 37, her campaign would primarily focus on "the issue of war and peace".

Apple’s iPhone 2019 series will bring no major upgrade
The iPhone XR in particular, the cheapest of Apple's latest line-up, is thought to have fallen flat with consumers. The news, first reported in the Wall Street Journal , comes as sales of the iPhone in China continue to suffer.


"There is one main issue that is central to the rest, and that is the issue of war and peace", Gabbard told Jones.

"I'm thinking through how I can best be of service and I'll make my decision based on that", she said. "There are a lot of challenges that are facing the American people that I'm concerned about and that I want to help solve".

Gabbard is now serving her fourth term in congress after being elected in 2012 to the US House, serving Hawaiʻi's 2nd District. But the last three general elections have been won by the major party candidate who staked out the more dovish position on America's foreign wars-so don't count her out right away. A source close to Gabbard confirmed to CBS News that she is running. She has visited early primary and caucus states New Hampshire and Iowa in recent months and has written a memoir that's due to be published in May. She also met with refugees and Syrian opposition leaders. Though Gabbard has been aligned with Trump over some aspects of Middle East policy ― including whether the USA should provide support for Syrian militias fighting Assad ― she recently called Trump "Saudi Arabia's bitch" for his failure to react to the Saudi killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. She also endorsed Keith Ellision for DNC chair in 2017. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Vice President Joe Biden for the party's nomination.

White Sox add another Manny Machado friend
The White Sox have signed Manny Machado's dad to replace Roger Bossard as head groundskeeper. The White Sox have signed Manny Machado's sister to work in the public relations department.


Despite - or because of - her military background, she has opposed United States involvement in Syria and faced criticism for visiting that country and meeting President Bashar al-Assad.

Indian Americans have been keenly following both Gabbard and Harris in anticipation of their run for the White House with mixed feelings: Gabbard is a white American but as a practicing Hindu is an icon among Hindu Americans.

While Gabbard is wildly popular with many Sanders supporters - she was the only member of Congress to join him at a post-election conference in Vermont - she's viewed skeptically on much of the left. She said "whoever is found responsible" must be held accountable and talked about "if" Assad is indeed guilty.

Several inches of snow possible Friday night, heaviest amounts south
Heading to the Chiefs game? Snow showers will linger Sunday night and into Monday morning before conditions dry out. In parts of the 77 corridor and Southside, ice accumulation on top of some accumulations of snow will be possible.


Gabbard has earned her right to be critical of those conflicts.
