President-elect Donald Trump is meeting on Monday with Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii), who was one of the staunchest supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) presidential campaign. 

{mosads}According to pool reports, Gabbard will meet with Trump Monday at Trump Tower in New York City, though there is no indication what the two will discuss.

One reporter for The New York Times tweeted that Gabbard was under discussion for U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, is reportedly a big fan of Gabbard because of her right-leaning stances on guns, refugees and Islamic extremism. 

Gabbard did not join the majority of her Democratic colleagues in co-sponsoring gun control legislation this summer.

She also voted in favor of a Republican-sponsored bill that requires refugees from Iraq and Syria receive background checks from the FBI. 

And the congresswoman condemned Obama earlier this year for not referring to recent terror attacks as “Islamic extremism.” 

Gabbard stepped down from her post as a vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee to support Sanders in his presidential bid. 

But after Hillary Clinton clinched the Democratic nomination, Gabbard said she would vote for Clinton over Trump.
