She won’t even give the POTUS credit…

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) said the strong economy was not because of President Donald Trump, but instead it is because people are demanding it though protest movements.

Partial transcript as follows:

TAPPER: So President Trump’s win in Michigan is one of the main reasons he’s president and when it comes to pitching voters here on re-election, economy is better than —

TLAIB: Really because GM is leaving.

TAPPER: But the unemployment rate drops from 5.4% to 4.1% and the GDP has increased 8%. Why should Michigan voters turn over control of the economy to Democrats when it is doing better under President Trump.

TLAIB: It is not handing over to anybody. It is making sure they become priority before anybody else. The numbers that come out, that is not what is felt here because, yeah, they’re low wage part-time jobs.

TAPPER: Wages are going up.

TLAIB: They are going up because people are demanding it go up. Not because Donald Trump wants them to go up. Does that make sense? Because the movement of fight for 15 is growing. The movement to hold corporations accountable is growing and because of movement work. Not because of who is president of the United States. Transformation from the civil rights movement to the labor rights movement didn’t happen because somebody introduced a bill or whoever was president and it happens because people here in the county, Wayne county and Detroit, they demanded it change. So you see a movement of saying no more. One job should be enough. That we should be pushing back against this kind of form of putting corporations and giving them the tax giveaways versus putting in the pockets of American people.

TAPPER: But the economy is doing better in Michigan under President Trump.

TLAIB: But I don’t put President Trump as the reason. It’s because of the people demanding it. If you don’t think the labor rights movement is growing, especially in the service industry, there was a strike downtown from security officers saying we deserve health care.

  1. Me’s a thinkin the TOWEL HEAD BIMBO wrapped her towel a little too tight. She’s really making Minnesota look stupid, come on people.

    1. Sorry it wasn’t the TOWEL HEAD BIMBO, but the HAMAS DUNGSPEWER, they both have camel breath and are lying anti-American whores. SEND THEM BACK!!!!!!

  2. The SS Democrat Naiz Party are our real enemies within our country and are so corrupt,crooked,and nothing but a bunch of Pathetic Liars.And if by anyway they get into our White House we better fight for our lifes or else this country will be finished with.

  3. To Ronald, I agree! Conservatives need to get busy now and not wait any longer! Writing emails to representatives does not seem to make any difference so…..newspaper editorials, groups protesting, , rallies at State Capitol Bldgs, emails to news outlets, emails to sponsors that place ads on fake networks to pull their money or lose customer business, boycott liberal establishments and let them know why, shut down Hollywood assholes at the box office,
    Can’t do it alone, need thousands, the millions to go after the left- wing U.N.- American socialists! These are the way we can turn elections and continue to keep America free and a Republic! It’s time to stand up and quit being passive and nice, tat for tat is what the Demrats need, talking and opinions won’t do any good, you can’t fix ignorant!

  4. Ugly hearts and ugly faces.Full of hatred and jealousy.Pushing evil.Well we are praying and guess what our God is a good God and greater than her god

  5. She needs to take Econ 101 from local community college. Wages are up because business is booming and people need workers. When corps compete for workers wages go up. The $15 per hour word let government distort the market and cost jobs.

  6. WE WANT THIS ENEMY OF AMERICA THROWN OUT OF OUR COUNTRY IF SHE STAYS SHE NEEDS TO BE HANGED FOR TREASON & TRAITOR AGAINST AMERICANS & AMRICA SHE SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO JUST LIVE IN OUR COUNTRY DUE TO WHAT SHE HAS SAID DONE AGAINIST AMERICANS PUT HER OUT NOW. HER & THE REST OF HER GANG WE WANT THEM THROWN OUT. THEM ALL OUT BEFORE IT IS TIME TO HAVE TO KEEP LISTENING TO AOC+3 CUTTING AMERICANS & OUR COUNTRY SAYS ANOTHER WORD AGAINST US. THIS IS OUUR COUNTRY & THEY ARE NOT WELCOME & THE OTHERS NEED TO GO AT THE SAME TIME LIKE NANCY, KILLARY, NADLAR, MUELLER. SHIEFF, CHUCKY BOY, SOROS & HIS FAMILY & ALL THE ABOVE FAMILES MUST BE OUT TOO & THERE MANY MORE TO GO TOO..

  7. Tlaib just illustrated perfectly why Democrats (and government in general) shouldn’t run anything. They haven’t a clue as to how jobs are created, and economies grow. I once said the Tyson chicken inquiry was the one exception because members of Congress are great at laying eggs.

  8. She definitely makes the people who elected her look baaaad. Did she even graduate or take an economics class in her life. Protests make the ecomony boom??????Where did she pull that info out from? There are steps that our President took to bring back jobs and to try and explain even the simplest of tariff reform, patriotism, etc. would go over her head.

  9. Why should all of us be taking steps to remove her? That is Pelosis’ job. While she is at it, I wish she would name just ONE thing they have done (Nancy and her squad) to help the Americans so far. My research turned up nothing.

  10. We need voter ID, the DemocRATS have over 1 million on the voter rolls than there are people in LA. Ripe for voter fraud and in Chicago people born in the 1800’s are still voting. One thing for sure they Elwood cheat, steal and do everything illegal to gain power

  11. It seems whenever you deal with stupidity, the truth usually slips out accidently. Rashida Tlaib is a prime example of this.

    Everyone knows, and after 2 1/2 years the Democrats have finally had to admit, that President Trump’s policies are behind the great improvement in the US economy, as he repealed all of Obama’s economic killing policies and agendas, and reduced illegal immigration by 70% in his first year in office, which created jobs, and opened up jobs for blacks, Hispanics, women, and people without a high school educations and diplomas. These jobs were previously taken by illegal immigrants, that President Trump had deported or scared away with threats of being deported if caught working in processing plants and factories all across the USA.

    These were the only things that were done in President Trump’s first year in office, that created all these record setting low unemployment rates in the USA, as his “Tax Cuts & Jobs Act” wasn’t voted and signed into law in the last month of his first year in office, and only went into affect at the beginning of his second year in office.

    But Rashida Tlaib claims that President Trump had nothing to do with the tremendous improvement in our economy, especially in Michigan where she claims GM is now going to leave. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) claimed that “the strong economy was not because of President Donald Trump, but instead it is because people are demanding it though protest movements.” But GM pays some of the highest factory wages in the USA , yet Rashida Tlaib and the Michigan Democrats are still making demands through protest movements that GM cannot financially provide, and may be the reason why GM is leaving Michigan, as they have been building factories in states where they have a “Right to Work ” laws.

    So Rashida Tlaib doesn’t want to give President Trump credit for our great economy, especially in Michigan, but wants to blame President Trump for GM leaving Michigan, which is actually being caused by Rashida Tlaib and the Democrats unreasonable demands in wages, and protests against those who won’t capitulate to their demands, which leads to union strikes, that hurts GM’s financial health, which is why they move their factories to get away from, and why today GM has so many factories overseas.

  12. For being born here she sure has a poor command of the English language. She is also sadly mistaken in everything she says. Wages were/are going up as we speak and very few of the idiotic $15 minimum wage laws have passed. This is Trump’s economy, no doubt about it, and it is doing great in spite of all the attempts on the left to destroy it. One thing that will hurt in the long run is the budget busting spending bill just passed. Americans want budgets cut and the budget balanced. Democrats see things just the opposite and apparently think we will never have to pay the piper.

  13. Talib- “Because the movement of fight for 15 is growing.” but it has not been implemented in most states, but if simply “demanding it” has been enough to get corporations to raise wedges and improve the GDP by 8%, and unemployment is at an All-Time Low For EVERONE Across the Bord, then why bother to pass the law she is asking for? Since all the demands are sufficient to improve the economy and it has nothing to do with Trump’s tax cuts or the removal of thousands of regulations the OBiden Administration imposed to strangle most businesses and prevent reinvestment, then her magical vocal performances (I’ve seen the videos of her crazed screaming rants — I mean demands) guess they Are All the People of Michigan need Right?!

    Someone should tell this JV team member it is time she and the others are cut from the Squad- her cheerleading skills leave a lot to be desired. Trump 2020
    Hope the people of Michigan ar to smart to vote for this moron again.
