The freshman Democrat tweeted a picture of her standing with Obama, writing that he “met with us new members of Congress and we had a thoughtful discussion about serving our country.”
“The best part was when he looked straight at me and said, ‘I’m proud of you,'” Tlaib continued.

Tlaib has had an eventful first few months in office.
In January, the Michigan Democrat promised attendees at a left-wing MoveOn reception in Washington, D.C., that Democrats would “impeach the motherfucker,” referring to President Donald Trump.
Since then, Tlaib has repeatedly made comments widely percieved as anti-Semitic.
