"And we're gonna go in and impeach the motherf*cker".

"Don't you ever, ever, let anybody take away your roots, your culture, who you are".

"Every child of immigrant parents knows what it means", Tlaib told CNN.

Her spokesman, Denzel McCampbell, said in a statement that Tlaib, one of only two Muslim women in Congress, "was elected to shake up Washington" and will not stay silent. And your son looks at you and says, 'Momma, look, you won. The president drew major applause when telling supporters that rather than politely mention tariffs to Chinese officials, he would prefer to be more direct and say, "Listen, you motherfuckers, we're going to tax you 25%".

On Thursday, Tlaib's ascendance was met with enthusiasm by pro-Palestinian activists who have long complained that they are an ignored constituency in Washington.

Tlaib's call to impeach Donald Trump isn't a surprise.

Tlaib opted to use the Koran instead of the Bible, during her ceremonial swearing-in but that outraged racists who apparently believe anyone who is not a Christian is an enemy.

He went on to say he had "done nothing wrong" with regard to collusion with Russian Federation and had "had the most successful first two years of any president".

"So, you are not concerned at all about the way that the president's base will react to the idea of the incoming Democratic caucus coming in with the idea already prebaked into the cake - [that] they are going to go and get him; you guys will go and get him?" And the more Liz Cheney and Kevin McCarthy chastise Tlaib, the more obvious it is that double standards are their favorite standards of all.

- Michigan's newest congresswoman Rashida Tlaib sworn in Thursday in the nation's capital, swearing in a different way at a rally Thursday night. "Their whole focus here is to try and attack this president when we're trying to move America forward".


Regardless, the congresswoman seemed to shrug off judgments about her speech the following morning.

Speaking later Friday to reporters in the Rose Garden, Trump said he thought Tlaib's comments were "disgraceful" and she "dishonoured herself".

She added, "This is it". This is about all of us. "In the face of this constitutional crisis, we must rise", she wrote.

Republican House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise demanded that his new colleague apologize for her comments.

"Passions are running high".

Tension over impeachment is likely to be a persistent thorn for Pelosi, who will have to balance between a small, vocal group of the most liberal members of her caucus, who want to see Trump removed immediately, and the majority of her members who want to wait for special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation to finish.

In 2017, then-US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley blocked the nomination of former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad as a peace envoy to Libya, simply because he is Palestinian.

Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) had a more measured tone on impeachment.

"It's important to me because a lot of Americans have this kind of feeling that Islam is somehow foreign to American history", said Tlaib. We'll see where the facts lead - and maybe that will lead to impeachment. "That's why it is important to protect the Mueller investigation".
