Rashida Tlaib removes Israel from the map in her congressional office
Jan 09 2019
On Tuesday night's edition of OutFront, Rep. Tlaib delivered her first nationally televised interview since video emerged of her remark to a crowd that "we're going to impeach the motherfucker", in reference to Trump. I'm very passionate about fighting for all of us.
"I understand I am a member of Congress. And that's the only thing that I apologize for ― that it was a distraction".
Trump has run into trouble fulfilling his defining campaign promise to build a wall paid for by Mexico, Harris said, and now he is trying to get Congress to bail him out. Meanwhile Tlaib has doubled down, tweeting "I will always speak truth to power". "This is so much more important".
"It's a critical moment for us in our country to fully grasp the human toll that this shutdown has in our communities", said Tlaib.
Canada's first and only female Prime Minister Kim Campbell has some strong feelings about US President Donald Trump and she chose to voice her opinions on social media.
Tlaib's controversial statement was likely seized upon in part because while it is easy to go after her presentation on social media, the Congresswoman was also one of the co-authors of an op-ed in the Detroit Free Press that suggested it was time to begin impeachment proceedings against the President.
Fatema, Tlaib's mother said that: "Wearing the traditional Palestinian dress during the swear-in is equivalent to the whole world for her".
Tlaib was sworn in on Thursday alongside the most diverse freshman class of new legislators in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives.
