Rashida Tlaib Just Sent ‘Racist’ Trump To The Frying Pan
Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), the first Muslim woman to be elected to Congress, did not hold back on Thursday when she went after Donald Trump.
During an interview with Hill.TV’s Jamal Simmons, Tlaib was asked what she thought of Trump’s remarks against specific cultural groups and religious groups.
“Look, I truly believe he is racist — and that’s probably controversial — he is,” Tlaib responded.
“It’s in his policies, it’s in his words, and the fact of the matter is that he’s still our president … but it doesn’t matter, I’m going to hold him accountable,” she added.
Tlaib, along with Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), are the first two Muslim women to be elected to Congress in the history of the country.
Tlaib went on to take one last jab at Trump by saying that both lawmakers and the public have no idea what drives Trump’s rhetoric.
“There’s so much, even when I watch national media outlets, it’s baffling because we’re all guessing like what is in his mind, what do you think that tweet was about,” she told Hill.TV.
