Former Democrat presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard unleashed a string of criticisms against President Joe Biden on Friday over his failure to unite the country, calling him “unfit to lead.”

Gabbard shared the comments during a video on Twitter posted Friday morning.

“Biden promised to unite our country. Instead he betrayed us, pouring fuel on the fire of divisiveness, tearing our country apart. Biden compares those who disagree with him to racists, traitors & enemies, & has his AG target Americans as domestic terrorists. Unfit to lead,” she wrote alongside the video.

“I supported Joe Biden, and millions of other Americans voted for Joe Biden because he promised to unite us,” Gabbard said in the video.

“He promised to bring us together, to end the divisiveness. Sadly, not only has he failed to do this, he has betrayed us all by pouring fuel on the fires of divisiveness that are tearing our country apart,” she added.

Her video included a clip from Matthew Olsen, assistant attorney general for the National Security Division, who said, “We face an elevated threat from domestic violent extremists, that is, individuals in the United States who seek to commit violent criminal acts in furtherance of domestic social or political goals. Domestic violent extremists are often motivated by a mix of ideologies and personal grievances. We have seen a growing threat from those who are motivated by racial animus as well as those who ascribe to extremist anti-government and anti-authority ideologies.”

Gabbard followed Olsen’s comments with a stern warning for Americans.

“If we allow this to continue, our country, our country, the country that we love, the land of the free, the home of the brave, it’ll be unrecognizable, and it will be lost forever,” she concluded.

The former Democratic presidential candidate also blasted Biden on Wednesday for remarks that he made during a speech this week that were widely panned as divisive and anti-American by critics. The Daily Wire reported:

Gabbard tweeted out a video clip of Biden where the president uttered the following lines:

I will defend the right to vote, our democracy against all enemies — foreign and, yes, domestic. … At consequential moments in history, they present a choice: Do you want to be the on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis? This is the moment to decide to defend our elections, to defend our democracy.

“Hillary’s calling tens of millions of Americans deplorables was divisive & disgusting,” Gabbard responded. “But Biden has gone further, calling those who disagree with his actions & policies domestic enemies, traitors, and racists. Biden promised to unite us, but he is doing all he can do divide us.”

Gabbard’s strong words against Democrats have increased in recent weeks. In November, she spoke out after an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity over disarray in the government.

“As long as we continue to have people in power who are willing to sacrifice the country for their own selfish interests, instead of sacrificing their interests for the good of the country, our country is doomed,” she wrote.
