Tlaib: ‘I’ve Never Felt More Palestinian’ Than in Congress

Speaking to the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights on Sunday, Rep. Rashida Tlaib declared that she feels more Palestinian in Congress than she has ever felt anywhere else in the world — including in “Palestine.”

“Honestly, I’ve never felt more Palestinian than I’ve ever felt in Congress — even in Palestine when I’m visiting my grandmother I’m more… American,” Tlaib said. “But I’m more Palestinian in the halls of Congress than I am anywhere in the country, in the world. And that just tells you, just the fact that they weren’t ready for us. They really weren’t. But we were ready for this.”
