USA election 2020: The Democrat candidates who are running for president

He asked her if she's going to run, and she responded, "I have chose to run and will be making a formal announcement within the next week".

Gabbard said "the issue of war and peace" would be the main focus of her campaign.

"There are a lot of reasons for me to make this decision", Gabbard told CNN.

Republican National Committee spokesman Michael Ahrens dismissed Gabbard's White House announcement, saying that the Hawaii Democrat has no voter base. Her endorsement came in dramatic fashion, with her resigning as a vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee to express her support. "We must end all USA support for Saudi Arabia's genocidal war in Yemen now". "As a combat veteran, I know the costs of war".

Since entering national politics in 2012-when she became the first Hindu elected to Congress-she has been an outspoken critic of the bipartisan consensus on foreign policy. By the middle of her second term, she was getting asked if she might one day run for president.

The previous Democratic president, Barack Obama, was also raised in Hawaii, and is the only president who was born in the island state.

She accused the party leadership of being partial to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and against Sanders and resigned as a vice president of the party.

The race for UnS presidency in next year's election is likely to see a Hindu representative and a senator of part-Indian-American descent vying for the Democratic Party's nomination.

She has advocated cutting U.S. aid to Pakistan and pressuring it to end its support global terrorism.

Individuals who are at the highest risk for experiencing complications of influenza include children under 2 and adults over 65. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends annual flu vaccinations for everyone age 6 months or older.

California senator Kamala Harris, New Jersey senator Cory Booker and Vermont senator Bernie Sanders are all weighing their own presidential bids and are expected to announce decisions in the upcoming weeks.

But after the election, some on the left began to view Gabbard more skeptically.

Rania Batrice, a former deputy campaign manager for Bernie Sanders' 2016 campaign, will be Gabbard's campaign manager, CNN said.

But this year she harshly criticised Trump for not taking a strong stand against Saudi Arabia for the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

"Trump's so-called populism has been a fraud", Gabbard said in August 2017. "It is long overdue that we end USA complicity in Saudi Arabia's atrocities", Gabbard said of the hot button issue.

Gabbard moved to Hawaii when she was two and embraced Hinduism as a teenager and is well-versed in the scriptures, PTI reported.

Gabbard recalls that she found the meeting encouraging.

"There is no force more powerful than love", Gabbard said.
