Stephanopoulos asked Gabbard about a Daily Beast story listing the support her campaign has received from Russophiles. He also noted her meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, her defense of Russian military operations in Syria and her statements that Russian election interference is no worse than what America has historically undertaken.

“Is Putin a threat to national security?” he asked.

“You now it’s unfortunately you’re citing that article, George, because it’s a whole lot of fake news. What I’m focused on is what’s in the best interest of the American people? What’s in the best interest of national security? Keeping American people safe,” Gabbard said. “And what I’m pointing out consistently, time and time again, is our continued wasteful regime change wars have been counterproductive to the interests of the American people and the approach this administration has taken in essentially choosing conflict … has been counterproductive to national security.”
