Former US Representative Tulsi Gabbard spoke with Tucker Carlson on Monday’s edition of Carlson’s eponymous show, where she discussed the US’s support of Ukraine with expensive weaponry, and how concerns of nuclear war are likely legitimate.
The US recently passed a $40 billion funding package for Ukraine.
“Tonight, Biden is sending another $8 billion to Ukraine that will help pay the salaries of Ukrainian bureaucrats, the ones who paid off his drug-addicted son,” Carlson said.

“The Biden administration’s policies, words, and actions,” Gabbard said, “It’s just been made very clear to us what their real goal is, and their real goal is the destruction of the Russian state. We heard just a few days ago how Secretary of Defense Austin kind of spilled the beans on what our real mission and goal is when he said, and I quote, ‘We want to see Russia weakened to the degree it cannot do the kinds of things it’s done in invading Ukraine.'”
“And so what that means is total destruction of the Russian state. What he’s not telling the American people is that Russia has also made it very clear that if we even get close to ‘winning and achieving this mission and goal’ he’s outlined, Russia’s said very clearly, they will have no other option than to resort to the use of nuclear weapons, starting first with tactical nuclear weapons and if necessary, escalating to the use of strategic nuclear weapons,” Gabbard said.
“This is not fear-mongering to point this out, the American people need to know that this is the track that this administration has put us on, and the very dire consequences that will occur if we continue down this path to our families, our communities, our country, and frankly, the world. This is the reality that we’re facing.”
“I would hope that the Secretary of Defense and the president United States would know this, that Secretary of State Blinken would know this,” Gabbard continued. “You know, there’s no explanation for their actions, their decisions and their policies because it directly threatens the lives and wellbeing of the American people.
“But not only the American people, frankly, the world if we continue down this. I think on a hopeful note, it’s not too late. That by God’s grace, we the people can stop this before it’s too late by taking action throwing out the war-mongers that are in Congress, and actually voting for and electing leaders in this country who will take action to end this insanity before, frankly, the world is destroyed,” she said.
