Tulsi Gabbard, former vice-chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee now serves the House Foreign Affair Committee. She is also a retired Iraq war soldier and also the first Hindu member of the Congress.
She met the Syrian dictator in 2017 which raised several criticisms.
But she explained the meeting to CNN as,
“I just met him as the opportunity arose and didn’t had any plans to meet him.If we have truly cared for the people of Syria, we have to meet anyone of them. The person who can make peace and end the suffering of the people. And that’s what I talked about in the meeting with him.”
