Yesterday, we reported that video footage from 2016 had just resurfaced in which the future Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib was shown being forcibly removed from one of Donald Trump’s campaign events after she caused a scene. Now, Tlaib has broken her silence for the first time since the video’s release to double down on her calls for Trump’s impeachment.
Breitbart reported that Tlaib began her speech before the NAACP convention in Detroit on Monday by calling for Trump to be impeached.
“Yeah, I’m not going nowhere! Not until I impeach this president,” Tlaib said.

Tlaib went on to address the feud between Trump and her “squad,” which includes Reps. Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ayanna Pressley.
“We need bold action, folks. I know what’s happening out there… it’s beyond just the four of us,” Tlaib said. “The squad is all of you. I can tell you, you are all the squad, trust me. If you support equity, you support justice, you are one of us.”
This comes one day after 2016 footage surfaced showing an unhinged Tlaib being dragged out of a Trump campaign event as she screamed at his supporters “You guys are crazy!” One man can be heard yelling back at her, “You’re an animal! Get a job!” as she is removed from the venue.
Rashida Tlaib screams in rage as she’s escorted from candidate Trump’s speech that she repeatedly interrupted in Detroit in August 2016.
Wonder where Antifa gets their boldness from??? Politicians acting like this sets the tone.

Trump has been in a bitter feud with Tlaib and her “squad” over the past week ever since he tweeted they should go back to their “home countries.” On Monday, Trump escalated things further when he took to Twitter to blast them once again.
“The “Squad” is a very Racist group of troublemakers who are young, inexperienced, and not very smart,” Trump tweeted. “They are pulling the once great Democrat Party far left, and were against humanitarian aid at the Border…And are now against ICE and Homeland Security. So bad for our Country!”
