Rashida Tlaib: Trump Has 'Failed as a President'
Democrat claims president's criticisms of Squad's anti-Semitism are a 'distraction'
Radical Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has claimed that Donald Trump criticizes her anti-Semitism because he has "failed as a president."
Tlaib, a lower-level footsoldier in AOC's "Squad" of offensive Democrats, says President Trump is "attacking" her as a way of "distracting" from his own alleged "failure."
Talib made the comments during an interview with MLive.
The Michigan lawmaker accused President Trump of criticizing her as a “way of distracting from the fact that he’s failed as a president.”
She also said that Trump’s comments, calling out anti-Semitic rhetoric, were “such absurdity” and “very painful.”
According got the Daily Caller, President Trump has repeatedly called out the Michigan congresswoman for her rhetoric on Israel and Jewish people.
In May, he accused her of having “tremendous hatred of Israel and the Jewish people.”

Earlier this month, the president again claimed that Tlaib, along with Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar hate Jewish people.
“They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds,” President Trump said.
"Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!"
It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit. They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds.

In another recent interview, the 43-year-old claimed that Trump criticized her and Omar because he’s afraid of “women of color.”
“He’s afraid of women of color,” she said.
"Because we’re not afraid of him and we’re not afraid to speak up and say that we have a white supremacist in the White House who has a hate agenda."
