US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii said in a press release on Monday she discussed pressing foreign policy issues during a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump earlier in the day in New York City.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — According to Gabbard, the meeting was initiated by Donald Trump.

"President-elect Trump asked me to meet with him about our current policies regarding Syria, our fight against terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS [Islamic State], as well as other foreign policy challenges we face."

The congresswoman said she relayed to Trump her concerns about the escalating fighting in Syria, and the problems a no fly zone would create for the Syrian people and the United States.

"For years, the issue of ending interventionist, regime change warfare has been one of my top priorities," Gabbard noted.

Gabbard, a Democrat, pointed out she disagrees with Trump on many issues and would not hesitate to express disagreement. However, she warned that divisiveness can destroy the United States, and therefore both sides need to come together on issues that matter to the American people.

Gabbard served as the vice chair of the Democratic National Committee until she resigned in order to support USD Senator Bernie Sanders in the primary race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
