Freshmen Dems Tlaib and Omar tried to set up a trip where they were going to spread their anti-Israel sentiment in Israel. Israel caught wind of their intentions and blocked them. Tlaib was not done trying to get into Israel as she pulled out a sob story claiming that it was the real reason she was going. But that quickly fell apart.
Tlaib sent a letter to the Israeli Foreign Minister, Ayre Deri, hoping to gain his sympathy. He tweeted about it.
“Rep. Tlaib just tweeted that she won’t be coming to Israel.
Just yesterday she sent me a letter, asking to visit her 90-year-old grandmother saying, “it might be my last chance to meet her”.
“I approved her request as a gesture of goodwill on a humanitarian basis, but it was just a provocative request, aimed at bashing the State of Israel. Apparently, her hate for Israel overcomes her love for her grandmother.@realDonaldTrump @RashidaTlaib.”
Trump also tweeted about Tlaib’s interaction with Israel.
“Israel was very respectful & nice to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, allowing her permission to visit her “grandmother.” As soon as she was granted permission, she grandstanded & loudly proclaimed she would not visit Israel. Could this possibly have been a setup? Israel acted appropriately!”
“Rep. Tlaib wrote a letter to Israeli officials desperately wanting to visit her grandmother. Permission was quickly granted, whereupon Tlaib obnoxiously turned the approval down, a complete setup. The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She doesn’t have to see her now!”
“Like it or not, Tlaib and Omar are fast becoming the face of the Democrat Party. Cortez (AOC) is fuming, not happy about this!”
It appears Tlaib was just trying to get into Israel to bash the country. I wonder how much of her grandma story was a lie. The sad part here is that she is supposed to be representing Americans and then does something foolish like this…
