Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) has taken heat for comments she made in a recent interview, with which she declared that she has a “calming feeling” when she thinks about the genocide because her Palestinian ancestors “lost their land” and “lost their lives” amid an effort “to create a safe haven for Jews” in the Middle East.

President Trump weighed in on the matter in a Monday morning Twitter post, writing:

Democrat Rep. Tlaib is being slammed for her horrible and highly insensitive statement on the Holocaust. She obviously has tremendous hatred of Israel and the Jewish people. Can you imagine what would happen if I ever said what she said, and says?

Tlaib lashed out in a Twitter post Sunday night, accusing Republicans of igniting “vile attacks” on her.

Tlaib spoke at a MoveOn.org event on Thursday, calling for Trump’s impeachment.
