Rashida Tlaib "obviously has tremendous hatred of Israel and the Jewish people," United States President Donald Trump wrote on his Twitter on Monday, following remarks made by the Representative about her ancestors, the Palestinians, providing a safe haven for Jews during the Holocaust.

"Can you imagine what would happen if I ever said what she said, and says?" Trump added.

The Michigan representative made the following comments in response to a question about her advocacy for a "one state solution" on the Skullduggery podcast on May 11:

"There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people's passports. And just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways. But they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”
