CPAC 2024: Gabbard Auditions For Trump VP, Warns Of Dem Assault On Democracy

Former Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard warned American democracy is under attack, criticizing the Department of Justice’s prosecution of former President Donald Trump in a speech at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, days after Trump admitted the former 2020 Democratic presidential candidate is on a list of potential vice presidential contenders.

“The Democratic beat and the swamp creatures of Washington, who are doing all they possibly can to keep us, the American people, from a very simple thing, having the freedom to choose who we want to be our next president,” Gabbard said to applause, receiving the first standing ovation of the conservative conference.
