Trump mocks Tlaib's tears, saying she was "delighted" at Grandma's visit



Tleib breaks down when she talks about the visits she made as a young girl to visit her grandmother on the West Bank. When she talked about her mother and herself having to go through "dehumanizing checkpoints," Tleib became visibly emotional.

"As a young girl visiting Palestine to see my grandparents and extended family, I watched my mother go through checkpoints, even though she was a United States citizen and a proud American," Tlieb said

The Israeli government banned Tleib and Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota from supporting their boycott of Israel shortly after Trump said the country would be displaying "major weakness" by allowing the two Democratic congressional women to come in.

Move for a boycott, officially known as the Boycott, Diving and Sanctions Movement, aims to end international support for Israel because of its policy toward the Palestinians, as well as its continued West Bank settlement as a violation of international law

The visit of Tleib and Omar was scheduled to take place from August 1

8 to 22. They were scheduled to visit Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Ramallah and Hebron. The two congressional women also planned to meet with Israeli and Palestinian peace activists and representatives of human rights organizations. Thleib planned to stay two additional days to visit his grandmother Mufti Thleib, who lives in the West Bank settlement of Beit Ur al-Tahta.

Trump, referring to a video by Thleib in protest at one of his election events before being elected to Congress, said he now did not believe her because of "the much-maligned mood of campaign rallies."

"She faced magnificence and didn't want to do it," he added.

"You have to see the things the four have said about Israel over the last few years," Trump said, referring to Tleib and Omar, as well as to representatives of Alexandria Okasio-Cortes and Ayana Presley, though he did not offer specifics on what he is referring to

Trump said that it had nothing to do with Israel's decision to ban Omar and Tleib, although he encouraged the country to ban them before Israel announced its decision. He said the trip was designed as a "propaganda tour against Israel."

Trump also escalates his call for a ban on the two lawmakers, proposing to ban all four Democrats from entering Israel.

"it would be bad to let them go – the four, I'm talking about all four," he said.
