Rashida Tlaib became the first Islamic representative to wield the gavel Wednesday despite widespread criticism over her anti-Semitic remarks.
Historians are sounding the alarm about the danger in Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s comments. One America’s Kara McKinney explains how her attempts to rewrite history may actually be a ploy to undermine the right of Israel to exist.
President Trump recently took to Twitter to condemn Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib for her recent comments on the Holocaust. He said Tlaib “is being slammed for her horrible and highly insensitive statement on the holocaust.” He went on to say “she obviously has tremendous hatred of Israel and the Jewish people.” The Michigan representative came under fire after a recent interview, where she said thinking about the Holocaust gave her a “calming feeling.” One America’s Stephanie Myers has the details.
Democrat House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is defending Rashida Tlaib’s controversial remarks on the Holocaust. Hoyer is accusing the president and Republicans of taking her comments out of context, and has claimed they owe her an apology.
