At OMB she’ll support more costly regime change wars & military industrial complex. Senators, I urge a NO vote,” Gabbard said in a post on Twitter.

Tanden, a former adviser to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, has been the chief executive officer and president of the Center for American Progress 이후 2011.

Tanden and Gabbard have had previous dust-ups, including in 2016 when they traded Twitter barbs about their disagreement about intervening in Syria.
