Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib viciously attacked Trump supporters on Sunday, arguing that anyone who wants a border wall also supports white supremacy.
During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” the Michigan Democrat insanely claimed that those who support President Donald Trump’s travel ban and building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border are following the white supremacy agenda.
“You also said in a statement after the attack that you were angry at those who follow the white supremacy agenda in my own country that sends a signal across a world that massacres like this are some kind of call to action. Who were you specifically talking about?” host Jake Tapper asked.
Tlaib went nuts with her response.
“The ones that stay silent and the ones that support the Muslim ban. Not only once, but twice, three times did we in this nation say to the world and to everyone in this country that Muslims don’t belong here,” Tlaib said.
“From the fact that every time we talk about a wall, it’s not about a structure, but about xenophobia, it’s about racism. It’s a symbol in so many ways of targeting brown and black people in our country. The fact that we continue to stay silent is what’s going to make us as a country less safe,” she added.
She continued, “And I can tell you, it’s not just brown, black people speaking up, it’s also white Americans across this country that are very distressed and also feel less safe because we’re not speaking up against white nationalism.”

Tlaib became a member of Congress in January, but she’s already made several controversial comments.
Hours after Democrats took control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November, Tlaib launched into a profanity-laced diatribe against Trump.
The Muslim lawmaker began her remarks by recalling a conversation that she had with her son.
“People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win,’” Tlaib said, recalling what her son told her.
“And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t.’ Because we’re gonna go in there and impeach the motherf**ker!” she added, with the crowd roaring with cheers.

Tlaib’s disturbing comments came hours after she published op-ed calling for Trump’s impeachment.
“President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country. On an almost daily basis, he attacks our Constitution, our democracy, the rule of law and the people who are in this country. Each passing day brings more pain for the people most directly hurt by this president, and these are days we simply cannot get back. The time for impeachment proceedings is now.”
Another day, another outrageous comment from a far-left Democratic lawmaker.
