Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is continuing to take shots at Hillary Clinton after the former secretary of state said she was a “Russian asset.”

In a new campaign video released Tuesday, the Hawaii Democrat called on Clinton to “step down from your throne.”

"Hillary, your foreign policy was a disaster for our country and the world—it’s resulted  in the deaths and injuries of so many of my brothers and sisters in uniform, devastating entire countries, millions of lives lost, refugee crises, our enemy al Qaeda and ISIS strengthened" and more, Gabbard said.

"Yet despite the damage you have done to our country and the world, you want to continue your failed policies directly or indirectly through the Democratic nominee."

She continued: "It's time for you to acknowledge the damage you have caused and apologize for it. It is long past time for you to step down from your throne so the Democratic Party can lead with a new foreign policy which will actually be in the interests of and benefit the American people and the world."

The video comes after one Gabbard published on Sunday that explained she believed Clinton was targeting her because she supported Sen. Bernie Sanders in the 2016 election.

"People warned me in 2016 that my endorsement of Bernie Sanders would be the end of my 'political career,'" Gabbard said in the video. "They said, 'Clinton will never forget,' that she and her rich and powerful friends, her allies in politics and the media will make sure that you are destroyed."

"If they can falsely portray me as a traitor, then they can do it to anyone—and in fact, that's exactly the message they want to get across to you,” she continued. "If you stand up to Hillary and the party power brokers—if you stand up to the rich and powerful elite and the war machine, they will destroy you and discredit your message. But, here is the truth: They will not intimidate us. They will not silence us."
