Trump slams 'disgraceful' profanity-laced call for impeachment

Trump slams 'disgraceful' profanity-laced call for impeachment

According to CNN, she is the first Palestinian-American ever elected to U.S. Congress.

Ms. Tlaib told a crowd hours after being sworn in Thursday night that Democrats would go after the president.

"'Look, Mama, you won".

As Ms Tlaib was sworn in, her son was caught dabbing - a gesture of triumph popular among the American youth.

Newly-elected Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) used an unprintable expletive to refer to President Donald Trump during a speech to a crowd of supporters shortly after being sworn into Congress on January 3.

Republicans have bridled at Tlaib's comments, using them to portray Democrats as politically-motivated opponents seeking retribution against Trump rather than to find common ground.

"I think she dishonored herself, and I think she dishonored her family".

In an interview with NBC News this week, Pelosi didn't rule out pursuing impeachment against Trump, but said Democrats would wait until special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation concludes.

Tlaib was elected as Michigan's representative from the 13th Congressional District.

"It is too early to talk about that intelligently", Nadler said. "I CAN'T HOLD THEM OFF MUCH LONGER ... unless you agree to end this shutdown, in which case maybe that'll soothe them for awhile".

On the morning before Tlaib's expletive-laden speech, The Detroit Free Press published her op-ed calling for Trump's impeachment.

The issue of impeachment has been a divisive one for Democrats.

With a tight smile, Pelosi rejected Tlaib's profanity and her impeachment vow.

Tlaib also explained the significance of what the Thobe means to her, especially having a mother who would hand-stitch them.

Last month, Tlaib announced that she would not participate in an annual trip to Israel sponsored by pro-Israel AIPAC lobby and pledged her support to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, saying she would organize her own delegation to the West Bank.

"People love you and you win". "We just have to see how it comes". "I assume she's new", Trump told reporters Friday.

Omar wore a hijab for her swearing in ceremony, which was a first for Congress because they had previously banned any sort of headwear.

But as the new Congress convened on Thursday, several rank-and-file members tried to jump-start the prospect of removing Trump from office.
