On Sunday, following the intense impeachment push by the Democratic party over the weekend, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich) on NBC’s “Meet the Press” claimed impeaching Trump would be “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.”

Her call for impeachment led to a blow back from President Trump right after Republican Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel responded to Tlaib’s comment.
McDaniel- “Rashida Tlaib continues to obsess over impeachment this morning.”
“Democrats want to impeach @realDonaldTrump because they don’t have any other message heading into 2020 and they’re scared they can’t beat him at the ballot box.”
This confirms the words of Rep. Lindsey Graham Sunday when he said Republicans would take back the House, keep the Senate and President Trump gets reelected if Democrats continue to obsess over impeachment.
Getting back at Tlaib, President Trump tweeted “impeach for what?” Just before exhibiting his successes including but not limited to his economic achievements. Ending with the obvious practice the Corrupt Democrats continue to accuse him for – “Dems are Obstructionists!” the president declared.
Impeach for what, having created perhaps the greatest Economy in our Country’s history, rebuilding our Military, taking care of our Vets (Choice), Judges, Best Jobs Numbers Ever, and much more? Dems are Obstructionists! https://t.co/NrTIxU9ZnA
