U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib on Friday said she would not visit her family in the West Bank as planned despite a reprieve by the Israeli government allowing her visit.
“Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me. It would kill a piece of me. I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in – fighting against racism, oppression & injustice,” Tlaib, a Democrat representing Michigan, said in a series of tweets.
President Trump decided to comment on the matter and used his Twitter profile to bash Rashida Tlaib.
“Israel was very respectful & nice to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, allowing her permission to visit her ‘grandmother,’” Trump tweeted on Friday evening. “As soon as she was granted permission, she grandstanded & loudly proclaimed she would not visit Israel.”
The president further speculated on the motivation behind
Tlaib and Omar decided to share a meme on their Instagram stories Friday from cartoonist Carlos Latuff, who’s work has been accused of being anti-Semitic and has trivialized the holocaust.
The meme featured Latuff’s cartoon of President Donald Trump and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu covering the congresswomen’s mouths, accompanied by a Star of David.
“The more they try to silence us, our voices rise,” Tlaib wrote in her caption. “The more they try to weaken us, the stronger we become. The more they try to discredit us, the truth prevails.”
The cartoonist that they decided to share, Latuff, also mocked dead US soldiers in Iraq.
