President Trump weighed in Tuesday on recently released footage showing Rep. Rashida Tlaib being physically removed from a 2016 speaking event; saying the Congresswoman “is not a sane person.”
The President was speaking at the Turning Point USA Young People’s Conference when he commented on the unearthed video.
Pres. Trump: "I watched just this morning this Tlaib from Michigan, right… There is no way she stands for the values of the people of Michigan. But I watched her this morning. She’s vicious. She’s like a crazed lunatic." https://t.co/G1g7XxPb98 pic.twitter.com/P6rPRU2v1H

“She’s like a crazed lunatic. She’s screaming, this is before she got into Congress. Who elected her? She’s screaming like a total lunatic at one of our rallies… She starts screaming, this is not a sane person. This is what we’re up against,” said Trump.

Stunning footage emerged on social media over the weekend showing now-Representative Rashida Tlaib being forcibly removed from a Donald Trump event in Michigan back in August 2016.
“Years before Rep. Rashida Tlaib was speaking out against President Trump in Congress, she was shouting at him as Secret Service members dragged her out of a meeting at the Detroit Economic Club,” reports Fox News.
“Video of the August 2016 incident, which has gone viral since resurfacing over the weekend, shows the current congresswoman shouting as then-candidate Trump delivered a speech before business leaders. While being escorted out of the room, she continued to jump and yell at those in attendance,” adds Fox.
