Gabbard Blasts Biden’s Russia ‘Sanctions’ Plan, Explains Who Will Really Be Hurt

Former Democratic presidential contender and Hawaii lawmaker Tulsi Gabbard ripped President Joe Biden’s sanctions regime against Russia after troops invaded neighboring Ukraine, predicting they will do more harm to Americans.

“The reality is the sanctions don’t work, whether put in before or now or later, the sanctions don’t work. What we do know is they will increase suffering and hardship for the American people,” Gabbard told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Wednesday evening.

“This is the whole problem with the Biden administration. They are so focused on how do we punish [Russian President Vladimir] Putin that they don’t care, and they are not focused on what is actually in the best interest of the American people,” she continued.

She then laid out what she believes the Biden administration should have done and what sanctions are really going to mean for average Americans.

So when Biden stands there and looks directly into the camera and says defending freedom will cost us, what he really should be stating is looking directly into the American people’s eyes and saying, ‘This will cost you,'” said Gabbard.

“Because the sanctions are not going to cost him or Kamala Harris or the power elite in this country or even the power elite in Russia, it is the people who will suffer, the American people, the Russian people, and people here at home working hard every single day facing those drastically increasing prices at the gas pump, facing increasing cost of the supermarket, impacting our supply chain,” she added.

The hardships that people are dealing with every day now with Biden sanctions plan, we will only see that continue to get worse.”
