Former Hawaii Congresswoman and 2020 Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard announced on Tuesday that she is officially leaving the Democratic party.

In a statement posted to social media, Gabbard criticized the party and President Joe Biden, stating that they were intent on only allowing their beliefs to be heard and trying to squash any opposing views.

Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard announces her departure from the Democratic Party.

"President Biden campaigned on a message of unity, healing the partisan divide, bringing the country together," she said in her statement. "He just gave a big speech saying supporters of President Trump are the most extremist group in our country and a threat to our democracy. That's half the country."

Gabbard, who represented Hawaii's 2nd Congressional District from 2013-2021 and made history as both the first American Samoan and practicing Hindu also referred to the entire party as an "elitist cabal of warmongers" as she explained her departure and encouraged "common sense, independent-minded" members of the party to join her with their own departure.

"I can no longer remain in today's Democratic Party that's under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers who are driven by cowardly wokeness, who divide us by racializing every issue & stoking anti-white racism, who actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms that are enshrined in our Constitution," she said. "Who are hostile to people of faith and spirituality, who demonize the police and protect criminals at the expense of law-abiding Americans. Who believe in open borders, who weaponize the national security state to go after political opponents, and above all, who are dragging us ever closer to nuclear war."

Gabbard has long been an outspoken critic of her former party, and following her unsuccessful 2020 presidential bid, became a frequent guest on Fox News, where she has voiced her displeasure with the Biden administration.

Gabbard's full statement announcing her decision and airing her grievances with the party coincided with the launch of her new podcast series, "The Tulsi Gabbard Show."

Gabbard also drew the ire of Democrats earlier this year when she chose to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, which actively raises funds to oppose Democrats nationwide.

The former Congresswoman did not state where her future party affiliations would align.
