U.S. Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard Calls On Senate & Trump To Recognize Genocide.

Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard has called on the U.S. Senate and President Donald Trump to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide. She has long called for the United States government to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide, she was also an original co-sponsor of H.Res. 296.

“The denial of the Armenian Genocide has had contemporary consequences. Turkey, which denies genocide, has no fear of committing it again,” she said.

“I have long called on our government to officially recognize the Armenian Genocide. The House has spoken with a clear voice, breaking the silence, recognizing the Armenian Genocide. And we call on the Senate and President Trump to do the same,” she stated.

“The history of the United States has been intertwined with that of the Armenian people and the Armenian Genocide,” Gabbard told a House meeting on Thursday, October 31.

“There were American missionaries and diplomats who let the world know that the Ottoman Empire was attempting to cleanse itself from the Armenian and Christian populations. The U.S. became home to many survivors. Their experiences inspired Raphael Lemkin to create the term genocide only to see his Jewish family suffer the same fate at the hands of Nazi Germany.”

“I have visited both Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh. I saw Turkey which denies genocide, has no fear of committing it again. In fact, Turkey has begun an ethnic cleansing of the Syrian Kurds in northern Syria,” the presidential hopeful said.

“The House has spoken with a clear voice, breaking the silence, recognizing the Armenian Genocide. And we call on the Senate and the President to do the same. We cannot let history repeat itself,” said Gabbard.
