A Muslim InThe House
The latest socialist candidate on track to join the United States Congress is Rashida Tlaib, who won her Democratic primary in Michigan’s 13th District is running for former Rep. John Conyer’s seat. Conyers held the seat for more than 50 years but stepped down after he was investigated for sexual harassment. She will run unopposed in November.
Tlaib is known for her dislike of President Donald Trump. She publicly heckled President Trump when he was a presidential candidate. She said, “confronting Trump was the most patriotic and courageous act I could pursue.”
She claims one of her goals when entering Congress is to impeach the president.
Tlaib is the daughter of Palestinian immigrants and was the first Muslim woman to serve in the Michigan State Legislature. If she wins the general election, she will be the first Muslim woman to serve in the House of Representatives.
After her election to the Michigan State Legislature in 2016, she posted an article on Twitter claiming Israel incites Palestinian violence.
