Biden to Rep. Rashida Tlaib: "I Admire Your Intellect," "You're A Fighter"

|

President Joe Biden acknowledged Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) in a speech at a Ford plant in Dearborn, Michigan on Tuesday in a push to invest in electric cars. Biden also gave a shoutout to her family in the West Bank. Biden's friendly action followed a barrage of criticism from Tlaib on Monday calling on the president to denounce Israel.

"Rashida Tlaib — where’s Rashida? I tell you what, Rashida — and I want to say to you that I admire your intellect, I admire your passion, and I admire your concern for so many other people."

"It’s my — from my heart, I pray that your grandmom and family are well," Biden said. "I promise you, I’m going to do everything to see that they are on the West Bank. You’re a fighter. And, God, thank you for being a fighter."
