Even though the report by Robert Mueller painted the current Trump administration in a very negative light, some of the president’s supporters have been trying to shift the discussion in other directions in an attempt to absolve him of his responsibility.
According to Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who is running for president, Democrats should go easier on President Donald Trump, because the report did not prove any direct collusion with Russia.
She said: "The conclusion that came from that Mueller report was that no collusion took place. Now is the time for us to come together as a country to put the issues and the interests and the concerns that the American people have at the forefront, to take action to bring about real solutions for them."
Gabbard added: "I don't think that we should defeat Donald Trump through impeachment. I think it's really important for us, in this country, to come together and have the American people vote to take Donald Trump out of office in 2020."
It does not look like Gabbard has a lot of support in the current political climate, as there have already been calls to impeach Trump from several other candidates.
One of those calls came from Senator Elizabeth Warren, who claimed that people should focus on certain things that are bigger than politics right now.
The Mueller report has been highly controversial and has contributed heavily to Trump’s already poor reputation in many circles.
Moreover, while there have been no direct repercussions yet, there is massive speculation that this is going to come sooner or later.
Trump himself has attempted to shift the discussion, as usual, but it looks like his attempts have been relatively unsuccessful this time.
Many have pointed out that the current climate in U.S. politics is quite heavily charged.
It is not out of the question to see Trump facing significant difficulties before his first term has come to an end.
Also, at this point, many are questioning whether he is a suitable candidate for a second term at all, with various rumors running around regarding his platform for the 2020 election.
Some have pointed out that Trump is facing a much more serious set of opponents this time.
Do you think Gabbard is right about Trump, yes or no?
