First Palestinian-American Congresswoman Calls Trump a Motherf*cker, Urges Impeachment

Rashida Tlaib, America’s first Palestinian-American congresswoman, is already making headlines on her first day in office. After being sworn in earlier today, the congresswoman made some controversial remarks about President Trump to a crowd. She called the president a motherf*cker, and said she would be working toward impeaching him.

This isn’t the first time Tlaib has made controversial statements. The congresswoman, who identifies herself as a democratic socialist, has been highly critical of Israel. Buzzfeed is reporting that a map in Tlaib’s congressional office has been altered to replace Israel with a Post-it Note that reads “Palestine.” Tlaib has accused Israel of racism and discrimination. She also supports the BDS movement, which is a boycott of Israeli goods and services. Tlaib has stated that she supports cutting all US aid to Israel.

Not only is Tlaib the first Palestinian-American congresswoman, she is also one of the first two Muslim women elected to congress in the United States. Tlaib was raised in Detroit by her parents who immigrated from Palestine. She was elected to represent Michigan’s 13th congressional district.

Although Tlaib is the first Palestinian-American congresswoman, the United States does not officially recognize Palestine as a nation. The US isn’t alone in that decision, either. About 30% of UN member nations do not recognize the State of Palestine. This is due to the ongoing conflict between Palestinians and Israelis, as Palestine has essentially declared sovereignty on land inside of Israel.
