US President Donald Trump slammed Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib on Friday night saying that now when she declined to come to Israel despite getting permission to do so from Interior Minister Aryeh Deri “the only real winner” is her grandmother who “doesn’t have to see her now!”
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 16, 2019
Tlaib sent an official request to Deri requesting to enter the Jewish State to visit her grandmother, citing this very well could be her last chance to see her.Her grandmother resides in the West Bank.
She was granted permission to do so but decided not to go to the West Bank after all.
Calling her rejection of the permission she sought “obnoxious,” Trump called the whole thing a “complete setup.”
