Tlaib Recalls Obama Saying ‘I’m Proud of You’

Rep. Rashida Tlaib tweeted Thursday a fond memory of former President Barack Obama expressing his pride in her when meeting the freshman member of Congress last week.

Obama “met with us new members of Congress and we had a thoughtful discussion about serving our country,” Tlaib wrote in a post accompanied by a photo of herself with Obama.

“The best part was when he looked straight at me and said, ‘I’m proud of you,'” she added.
