Trump Campaign Hypes Tulsi Gabbard's Attacks on Democratic Party During Debate With '100' Emoji

President Donald Trump's 2020 campaign hyped congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard after she attacked the Democratic Party during the fifth presidential debate in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday evening.

"Congresswoman Gabbard, you have criticized Hillary Clinton as 'the personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party, what is the rot you see in the Democratic party?" moderator Ashley Parker asked during the first half of the debate.

"Our Democratic Party is unfortunately not the party that is of, by and for the people," Gabbard responded. "It is a party that has been and continues to be influenced by the foreign policy establishment in Washington, represented by Hillary Clinton and others in foreign policy, by the military-industrial complex and other greedy corporate interests."

The Hawaii congresswoman went on to explain that she could help fix the party if elected.

"I'm running for president to be the Democratic nominee that rebuilds our Democratic Party, takes it out of their hands and truly puts it in the people of this country," she said. "A party that actually hears the voices of Americans who are struggling all across the country and puts it in the hands of veterans and fellow Americans who are calling for an end to this ongoing Bush, Clinton, Trump foreign policy doctrine of regime change wars, overthrowing dictators in others."

She concluded: "As president I will end this foreign policies, end these regime change wars... and instead our hard earned American dollars into actually serving the needs of our citizens back home."

Minutes after Gabbard's remarks, an official Twitter page managed by Trump's 2020 campaign team shared a clip and quote from the congresswoman's answer alongside the "100" points emoji.

Gabbard took the stage at roughly 9 p.m. ET at Tyler Perry Studios alongside top tier Democratic candidates former Vice President Joe Biden, and Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. They were also joined by former tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang, business executive Tom Steyer, South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senators Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar and Kamala Harris.

Earlier this month, former Congressman Beto O'Rourke dropped out of the race after participating in the fourth debate. Former Housing Secretary Julián Castro, who also participated in the last debate, did not meet the requirements to qualify for the fifth debate.

Four women moderated the event hosted by MSNBC: network hosts Andrea Mitchell and Rachel Maddow, Washington Post White House reporter Ashley Parker, who's also an NBC analyst, and NBC White House correspondent Kristen Welker.

Since launching their bids, Biden, Warren and Sanders have largely led the crowded field. However, Buttigieg has emerged as a rising star, demonstrated by his strong polling figures from Iowa and New Hampshire in recent weeks.
