Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard opposes impeaching President Donald Trump even as members of her own caucus seek to remove him from office.

The Hawaii Rep.’s position puts her at odds with other Democratic presidential candidates who wish to see Trump impeached, namely Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. Roughly 57% of Americans want to see the Trump replaced, according to an August poll from Monmouth University poll.  

“I don’t [support impeachment,]” Gabbard said in an interview set to appear Sunday. “You know, I think it’s important for us to think about what is in the best interest of the country and the American people, and continuing to pursue impeachment is something that I think will only further to tear our country apart.”

“Make no bones about it: We need to defeat Donald Trump,” she said. “But I think it’s important for our country’s sake and our future that the voters in this country are the ones who do that, and I believe that we will.” (RELATED: ‘Answer For It.
