Muftia Tlaib, who spoke with Reuters in her garden in the village of Beit Ur Al-Fauqa in the West Bank, Israel was dismissive of a tweet by the president that suggested she should be happy the congresswoman won’t be visiting, after the Michigan Democrat rejected the unspecified restrictions Israel imposed on any trip to the disputed territory.
In response, the granny said: “Trump tells me I should be happy Rashida is not coming — May God ruin him.”…
The freshman Democrat hasn’t seen her grandmother since 2006. Uncle Bassam Tlaib said the lawmaker “sees her granny as a second mother, she has always supported her. Rashida says she owes her success to her grandmother.”
The grandmother is hopeful she will see her granddaughter soon: “My heart tells me that she will come.”
