Former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard Monday criticized President Biden for promising to choose a Supreme Court nominee who is a Black woman, saying such a move is harmful “identity politics.”
“Biden chose Harris as his VP because of the color of her skin and sex—not qualification. She’s been a disaster,” Gabbard said early Monday morning. “Now he promises to choose Supreme Court nominee on the same criteria. Identity politics is destroying our country.”
Biden promised on the campaign trail that he would nominate a Black woman to the Supreme Court, a promise he doubled down on when Justice Stephen Breyer announced his retirement last week.
