Reports indicate former President Trump and his advisors have discussed foreign policy and potential changes to the Department of Defense with Tulsi Gabbard.

Trump is said to be frustrated by past Pentagon personnel choices and met with Gabbard last year to discuss military interventions overseas.

“Amazingly, this is the time we live in when such a statement is believed to be controversial by some and an act of courage by others,” Gabbard said.

Gabbard, a former Democratic congresswoman who criticized US aid to Ukraine, shares Trump’s views on limiting foreign entanglements.

“Last question, this came up. If Donald Trump for example wins the nomination, he has a pretty sizeable lead, and make a call and say, ‘Tulsi I want you to run with me’. What would you say?” Sean Hannity asked.

“I look forward to having that conversation,” Gabbard said.

She has expressed openness to being Trump’s 2024 running mate if he asked, saying she wants to help prevent new wars.

“I want to be in a position to help protect our country’s freedom and to prevent us from getting into yet another catastrophic war. I don’t just want to be a picture on the wall. I don’t want to be somebody who just cut ribbons,” she added.

A Fox News host previously predicted Trump would pick Gabbard due to her individuality and stances appealing to independents.

“The thing I like about Tulsi is that if she were to give you two opinions, you could not predict a third. She’s a definition of an individual. Like, I disagree with her on probably at least 30%, maybe 40% of things, but the boxes she ticks aren’t the boxes that Kamala ticks. Her boxes are achievements and ideas. That’s different than skin color and where she was born — not where she was born, but whatever her background is. So, I think that is what makes her so different. I have never seen her angry in my life. And just lastly, I think she’s going to be Trump’s VP. That’s where this is going,” Greg Gutfeld said.

“But I do think when she said ‘the anti-white racism,’ she said something most people can’t say. That takes serious stones to say that because it is true. I mean, in the Democratic Party they made it clear that, you know, you can be racist against white people because they have it coming. And I think that’s why everybody is so desperately identifying as something else. ‘No, no, I’m not white!’ Everybody is finding something else to be. So that’s why you come to the Republican Party or you become an independent. Then you can be who you are, you don’t have to pretend,” he added.

Their discussions suggest Trump may tap Gabbard for the ticket and seek her advice on altering US defense priorities if elected again.
