American Politician and Hawaii’s representative Tulsi Gabbard has slammed US President Donald Trump for ‘offering to place American military under the command of Saudi Prince Mohammed Bin Salman’ in the aftermath of attacks on Saudi oil facility, Aramco. She further refers Mohammed Bin Salman as the ‘dictator’ of Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 

Earlier, Donald Trump in a tweet said “we are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom.”

Alleging Trump of playing in the hands of Saudi Arabia as Gabbard said, “Mr President, I have never indulged in hateful rhetoric against you and your family, and I never will but your offering our military assets to dictator to dictator of Saudi Arabia to use as he sees fit, is a betrayal of my brothers and sisters in uniform.”

“For you to think that you can pimp out our proud service men and women to the prince of Saudi Arabia is disgraceful and it once again shows that you are unfit to serve as our Commander in Chief”, she added.

Gabbard said that as a member of Congress as well as, as a soldier, she and others in uniform have taken an oath to protect and defend the American people and the constitution of the United States. And there’s nothing in US constitution 'that gives Trump the power' to go to war without the express consent if Congress.
