Democratic Senator Manchin Calls Rep. Tlaib’s Comments Disgusting
0

Senator Steve Manchin condemned fellow Democrat Rashida Tlaib during an appearance on Fox News earlier today. Tlaib, America’s first Palestinian-American Congresswoman, called President Trump a motherf*cker and advocated his impeachment on her first day in office. Senator Manchin called her comments disgusting and horrible.

Tlaib’s comments about the president aren’t her first controversial statements. The congresswoman from Michigan, who identifies as a democratic socialist, has been extremely critical of Israel. According to Buzzfeed, on her very first day in congress, a map in Tlaib’s office was altered to replace Israel with a Post-It Note that reads “Palestine.”

Tlaib has previously accused Israel of racism and discrimination. The congresswoman supports the BDS movement, which is a boycott of Israeli goods and services. She also stated that she supports ending US foreign aid to Israel.

President Trump directly responded to her statements earlier today. The president called her comments disgraceful. He went on to say that the congresswoman dishonored herself and her family. The president also called the comments “highly disrespectful to the United States of America.”

In addition to being the first Palestinian-American congresswoman, Tlaib is also one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress in the United States. She was raised in Detroit by parents who immigrated from Palestine. Congresswoman Tlaib was elected to the US House of Representatives by voters in Michigan’s 13th congressional district.
