Israel announced on Thursday that Tlab and Omar would not be allowed to make a previously-scheduled visit to the West Bank, before retreating on Friday and allowing her to visit under conditions that she described as "oppressive".
He called on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to ban the planned visit this weekend of freshmen Democratic congresswomen Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of MI to the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Trump's comment came amid a string of tweets Friday responding to Tlaib's announcement that she would not travel to Israel to visit her grandmother despite having been granted permission to enter the country from Israeli officials. I can not allow the Israeli government to take that away from them or to use my deep desire to see my grandmother, potentially for the last time, as a political bargaining chip.
She added, "Silencing me & treating me like a criminal is not what she wants for me". "It would kill of piece of me". In preparation for my visit, my grandmother was deciding which fig tree we would pick from together, while Palestinians and Israelis who are against the illegal military occupation were looking forward to Members of Congress finally listening to and seeing them for the first time.
"I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in - fighting against racism, oppression and injustice", she tweeted. The Guardian quoted, for example, Nour Odeh, a former spokeswoman for the Palestinian Authority, as saying, "What is truly upsetting is that Rashida Tlaib fell in this trap and accepted to demean herself and grovel". "It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Representative Omar and Representative Tlaib to visit", Trump tweeted. Both have been highly critical of the Israeli government's policies, and they support a controversial boycott against Israel.
US FDA proposes graphic warnings on cigarette packs, advertisements
About 34.3 million US adults and almost 1.4 million USA youth (ages 12-17) now smoke cigarettes, according to the agency. The FDA tried this tactic in 2011, but Big Tobacco sued and got the courts to throw out the rule.

In a tweet this morning, President Trump said Israel would show, quote, great weakness by allowing the congresswomen to enter. Deri fired back at Tlaib, stating that she hates the Jewish state even more than she loves a member of her own family.
Akshay Kumar: Sad that today's actors avoid multi-hero films
Both Mission Mangal and Batla House are based on real life incidents, and are high on nationalistic feelings. This is not the first time that Akshay and John have vied for Independence Day honours at the box-office.
The government argued the two would promote the Boycott, Divestments and Sanction movement during planned visits to East Jerusalem and the West Bank. "I will respect any restrictions and will not promote boycotts against Israel during my visit", she initially wrote.
He recalled that Tlaib and Omar refused to join the 41 Democratic members of Congress who last week went on an Israel trip sponsored by the AIPAC, and claimed that they instead sought transit to the West Bank and Gaza "as an additional act of political warfare".
"It's been a long time since I've seen her-five to six years".
A day later, Israel made a decision to allow Tlaib to visit her 90-year-old grandmother in the occupied West Bank on humanitarian grounds. It's the latest episode in the country's serial moves to stifle leftwing dissidents, including holding Simone Zimmerman, founder of IfNotNow, at the border; detaining the journalist Peter Beinart in Ben Gurion airport; and denying an entry visa to the BDS advocate Ariel Gold.
While every nation's politics is open to criticism-and G-d only knows that Israel gets way more than its fair share, especially at the UNjust United Nations, which has more resolutions against Israel than all other nations of the world combined-Omar and Tlaib have gone way beyond criticism to active hostility to the Jewish State and people.
