President Trump on Tuesday ramped up his attacks on Rep. Rashida Tlaib after the Michigan Democrat got emotional at a press conference criticizing Israel over its decision to bar her from entering the country last week.
“Sorry, I don’t buy Rep. Tlaib’s tears,” Trump tweeted after Tlaib spoke out the previous day about Israel’s decision. “I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long. Now tears?”
Trump again claimed that Tlaib “hates Israel and all Jewish people,” and called her an “anti-Semite.”
The president has repeatedly attacked Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) after the two congresswomen were denied entry to Israel for their support of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against the country. Trump had suggested Israel would look “weak” if it allowed the congresswomen to enter.
