With border agents working tirelessly trying to secure the Southern border, President Joe Biden decided not to congratulate them or thank them for their hard work. Instead, following false rumors, President Biden decided to open an investigation into border agents supposedly “whipping” migrants. Although the photographer behind the photo says the claims are false, Democrats charged ahead. Now, former Democratic Representative of Hawaii, Tulsi Gabbard, is demanding that Biden apologizes to the American people, suggesting he is an autocratic-type leader.
Speaking on “Watters World” with host Jesse Watters, Gabbard tore into the president.“I consider Joe Biden a friend, but he’s absolutely wrong. And he needs to apologize to the American people for saying what he said. And here’s why, you know: He’s somebody who’s been very outspoken as being against autocrats, autocracies, dictators, but what he essentially did was act as judge, jury, and executioner for these Customs and Border Patrol agents on horseback.”
Gabbard also found issue with how Biden is already saying the agents in question are guilty before the investigation has even started. “How can they expect to have any kind of fair outcome to an investigation when the President of the United States has already declared their guilt and that they will be punished?”
Seeing the Biden administration moving America in the wrong direction, Gabbard added, “The bigger issue here that this points to, which is one that that we all need to be concerned about is that if we are no longer a country of laws, if we are no longer a country where we know we will be presumed innocent, unless proven guilty, then we don’t have a democracy. And that’s the increasing feeling that a lot of us have is that we are losing our democracy, and moving closer and closer to what essentially is an autocracy.”
