Tulsi Gabbard is a presidential candidate for the United States. The first Samoan-American and the first member of the Hindu Congress, Gabbard is a cryptic investor who revealed his holdings of Litecoin and Ether in a routine filing last year.
Gabbard is a Democrat who is currently the United States representative for the second congressional district of Hawaii, a seat he has occupied since 2013. Trumpeting critic of the Trump administration, Gabbard announced his bid for the presidential election of 2020 Friday. She believes the US government is complicit in supplying corruption by serving banks and mortgage industry lobbyists who give profits to people. She calls their actions "flagrant corruption and greed".
While 800,000 Americans wait and work without pay, the administration bows to the credit industry lobbyists. The blatant corruption and greed of an administration that puts banks above people is the root cause of our broken system. https://t.co/YHl5d2J9PA

The value of both cryptographic assets of Gabbard have not been specified and are listed between $ 1,000 and $ 15,000. He made both purchases in December 2017, close to the apex of cryptography craze when valuations rose dramatically and pushed the cryptocurrency capital cap to $ 566.2 billion, approaching its record high of 813 , 8 billion dollars in January 2018.
The current current market capitalization is around $ 118.2 billion, according to data compiled by CoinMarketCap, after falling consistently throughout 2017 in an ongoing bear market.
During the presentation of the Van Jones Show at CNN on Friday, Jones put pressure on the Iraq war veteran about the likelihood of his presidential campaign. Gabbard, who is currently a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, replied,
"I have decided to run and make a formal announcement next week."
Gabbard states that its main issues related to the platform are access to health care, climate change, criminal justice reform and global conflicts.
"There is a main issue that is central to the rest, and this is the question of war and peace".
In February 2016, the Hawaii Congress representative resigned from the National Democratic Committee to support the Vermont Senator presidential campaign Bernie Sanders. Gabbard is also known for his unorthodox and very controversial approach to foreign policy. In January 2017, he visited Syrian President Bashar Assad and claimed that instead of getting rid of Assad, the United States should focus on Islamic groups in the region.
Gabbard is likely to face his democratic colleague Elizabeth Warren, who is a straightforward cryptic critic. The Massachusetts senator announced on New Year's Eve that he is forming an exploratory committee for a possible presidential race.
Gabbard appeared on Joe Rogan Experience on September 10, 2018, where he outlined his views on global affairs, the US state, the military-industrial complex, and why US foreign policies in the Middle East have failed.
