Tlaib proudly spoke of her relatives up before dawn in the West Bank watching on TV as their granddaughter was elected to Congress. The crowd responded with ululating.
Video of Tlaib’s speech was posted to Twitter by law professor Khaled Beydoun Tuesday night without clarification that it was from August.

Trump haulting aid & closing the Palestinian Aid Office is reckless & inhumane. Donald's move confirms his hatred of people that don't look like him. I hope future members of Congress will join me in denouncing this irresponsible act by @realdonaldtrump. pic.twitter.com/vDfbK6T4rZ

Adam met a compassionate president yesterday. I told Pres. @BarackObama that Adam wants to be a meteorologist. He smiled at Adam & said, "Well I would believe your forecasts." The smile on Adam's face was priceless. A Pres that helps our children believe! 2020 is not close enough pic.twitter.com/azBERo4tJA
