‘Impeach for What’?: Trump Swipes Back After Tlaib ‘Continues to Obsess Over Impeachment’

Freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) isn’t letting up on her calls for the president’s impeachment, which has President Donald Trump swiping back.

Tlaib told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that it’s “not about the 2020 election”; instead, “it’s about doing what’s right now for our country.”

“I think it is moving toward that,” she said on whether congressional Democrats will continue to press forward on impeachment. “It’s going to demand that.”

Watch her comments below:

National Republican Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel caught wind of Tlaib’s comment and tweeted that Tlaib “continues to obsess over impeachment.”

McDaniel placed the reasoning of the impeachment narrative behind the 2020 presidential election, claiming it’s because “they’re scared they can’t beat him at the ballot box.”

“Impeach for what,” the president asked in response to the RNC chairwoman’s tweet before touting his economic achievements, among several others.

As for the booming economy, several 2020 Democratic presidential candidates — such as former Vice President Joe Biden — have tried to claim that Trump “inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration.” However, as IJR Red dived further into it, they left out the full story.

Under the Trump administration, the unemployment rate dropped to a nearly 50-year low in April. Unemployment rates for black and Hispanic Americans fell to record lows as well.

“Dems are Obstructionists!” the president declared on Monday.

As several congressional Democrats have called for Trump’s impeachment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed last week that the president is engaged in a “cover-up” and is “crying out” for impeachment.

However, the speaker is trying to wrangle in her seemingly divided House, as she’s claiming Democrats won’t be moving toward impeachment at the moment, as IJR Red reported.

As IJR Red noted, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) blasted the “bunch of crazy” Democrats using special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation report to try to continue their impeachment narrative. Instead, he suggested it’ll only help Trump’s re-election in 2020.

He actually inherited his so called best economy from President Obama. He ran down his personal business to great losses and bankruptcies. Never rely his spoken words.

Tlaib is a Muslim. The Koran is her constitution. Muslims are NOT to follow the civil laws, only allah’s. She did take an oath to uphold and defend the constitution which is baffling. That is against the Koran. She has a severe conflict of interest. Guess who she is serving? Not the U.S. She has an agenda just like Obama did.

I’m not sure who all she is referring to when she says “all of the American people”?! She certainly doesn’t speak for me! Why she even was elected inside our Congress who the hell knows?

Pelosi will delay the Democratic impeachment attempt until just before the election so they can make a bunch of charges that can’t be disproved in time for the election. If the press can convince the public they can impeach, the stockmarket and maybe housing will crash, which they will try to blame Trump for, all as a last ditch effort to defeat him. If they are smart they will find a Democrat who appears to be somewhat of a moderate. After the Census, they can kick out all of the illegals they used to stuff the results that gives them… Read more »

Let the left wing lunatics like Rashida Tlaib continue raving and ranting. She is an embarrassment to her ethnicity and detriment to her district. All she is doing wounding her constituents and making sure they don’t get the benefits that a friend of the administration could. She’s a 0ne-term loser. One of her own will push her out.
