Michigan Congress member Rashida Tlaib on Friday called Donald Trump is “violent white supremacist.”
Her tweet came in response to Trump's comments on Twitter about Minneapolis, referring to some demonostrators as "thugs" and warning "when the looting starts, the shooting starts."
In her post, she highlighted his tweet about Minneapolis and his supportive tweet about April demonstrators in Michigan.
When someone tells you who they are, believe them. The Impeached President is a violent white supremacist. https://t.co/O93PJaSleM— Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) May 29, 2020
The president tried to explained his tweet Friday afternoon.
Looting leads to shooting, and that’s why a man was shot and killed in Minneapolis on Wednesday night - or look at what just happened in Louisville with 7 people shot. I don’t want this to happen, and that’s what the expression put out last night means....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
