'I have chose to run, ' Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard told CNN and will soon make a formal announcement for president.

"I have chose to run and will be making a formal announcement within the next week", Gabbard told CNN's Van Jones, the network revealed on Friday evening.

"There is one main issue that is central to the rest, and that is the issue of war and peace", she continued.

Gabbard, a native of American Samoa, was elected to the Hawaii State Legislature in 2002 at the age of 21, the youngest woman to be elected to a state legislature in US history at the time. She was a major in the Hawaii Army National Guard and served two tours of duty in the Middle East.

At age 21, Gabbard was elected to serve in the Hawaii state Legislature. "As a combat veteran, I know the costs of war".

She comes from a multicultural, multi-religious family and, as a practicing Hindu, was the first Hindu elected to Congress. She quickly established herself as a voice for her party's left on domestic issues and a critic of foreign military intervention.

Gabbard's declaration follows a December 12 appearance on MSNBC's "Hardball" in which she said she was "seriously considering" a presidential run.

FA to investigate allegations Leeds sent 'spy' to Derby training
Tonight, the FA said: "We are aware of the incident at Derby County's training ground and we will be investigating the matter". Earlier a Derbyshire Police statement had confirmed a man was removed from a position near the club's training ground.

Gabbard criticized the Obama administration on Iran, before ultimately supporting the Iran nuclear agreement.

Within minutes of the news that Gabbard is mounting a presidential campaign, the Republican National Committee (RNC) blasted out a press release detailing her potential vulnerabilities. After coming back home, she worked as a legislative aide to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., becoming a sought-after surrogate in the primaries. She was one of a handful of Democrats who met with Trump during the presidential transition, amid speculation that she could become United Nations ambassador or secretary of state. Though Gabbard has been aligned with Trump over some aspects of Middle East policy ― including whether the US should provide support for Syrian militias fighting Assad ― she recently called Trump "Saudi Arabia's bitch" for his failure to react to the Saudi killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"Trump's so-called populism has been a fraud", Gabbard said in August 2017.

Asked past year whether she would still consider running if Sanders ran, Gabbard said Sanders is a friend and she didn't know what his plans were. She said she sat down with Assad in an attempt to end the civil war in Syria.
