Democrat Representative Encourages Cooperation

In order to promote policies and regulation that would benefit the country, it is important for the Legislative and Executive power’s members to work together regardless of their political party. Although it seems hard to achieve this unity in the next administration, Democrat Representative Tulsi Gabbard set an example of cooperation. The Congresswoman, a military combat, agree to meet with President-Elect Donald Trump to discuss foreign policy issues.

The lawmaker, who has criticized some of Obama’s action regarding ISIS, commented in a statement that

“While the rules of political expediency would say I should have refused to meet with President-elect Trump, … I will never allow partisanship to undermine our national security when the lives of countless people lay in the balance, … I will continue to seek common ground to deliver results that best serve all Americans, as I have tried to do during my time in Congress.”

Rep. Gabbard also mentioned that they had a fruitful conversation with Trump about the US’ role in the fight against ISIS and especially al Qaeda’s grow in Syria and Yemen.

We discussed my bill to end our country’s illegal war to overthrow the Syrian government, … and on defeating al-Qaeda, ISIS, and other terrorist groups who pose a threat to the American people.

Congresswoman Gabbard has proved that is possible to do what is right for the state and join forces.

“I believe we can disagree, even strongly, but still come together on issues that matter to the American people and affect their daily lives. We cannot allow continued divisiveness to destroy our country.”

Hopefully other congresspeople, instead of encouraging disunion and anger, follow her example.
