On Wednesday, former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D) slammed President Biden’s remarks this week on voting rights and criticized him for failing to unite Americans.
Tulsi made the remarks on Twitter, where she shared a clip of Biden’s speech at Martin Luther King Jr.’s alma mater, Morehouse College, on Tuesday. In the clip, the president can be heard saying “I will defend the right to vote in our democracy against all enemies – foreign, and yes, domestic.”
“Consequential moments in history, they present a choice. Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis? This is the moment to decide, to defend our elections, to defend our democracy,” Biden added in the video.
Last week, Gabbard took to Twitter to call out the Biden administration for not invoking the Defense Production Act to make Pfizer’s newly-developed COVID-19-fighting oral drug, Paxlovid, available to more Americans.
