Israel upended diplomatic norms earlier this week by barring her and fellow freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar from joining a trip attended by other lawmakers. "It didn't work then and it won't now".
But just hours after being sworn in as the first Palestinian-American woman in Congress, Tlaib drew criticism for using profanity to demand Trump's ouster.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib got emotional Friday following her announcement that she would not visit the West Bank to see her 90-year-old grandmother "potentially for the last time" after Israel ultimately reversed its decision to bar the congresswoman from the country.
"Silencing me with treatment to make me feel less-than is not what she wants for me", Tlaib said. In a letter sent to Israel's Interior Minister Ayre Deri, the MI congresswoman expressed the importance of visiting her aging grandmother and vowed not to promote any boycotts against the Jewish state during her trip.
"I see her coming to the village in traditional [Palestinian] dress", she told AFP on Thursday, before the latest development. Ali Abunimah, a prominent Palestinian activist, tweeted that Tlaib should have used her platform to highlight Israel's restrictions "instead of writing that humiliating letter asking the occupier to treat her as an exception in exchange for abiding by its 'restrictions'".
Tlaib's planned visit to Israel and the West Bank was initially blocked by Israel.
Omar posted her support, writing, "MyPalestinianSitty is trending and I am overcome with emotions realizing how we are finally humanizing one of the world's most dehumanized peoples".

He was at a confrontation that broke out on May 1 outside a bar where antifa members had gathered after a May Day demonstration. The rally is being organized by a member of the Proud Boys, designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his government was blocking congresswomen Tlaib and Omar due to their support for an global boycott movement of Israel.
Similarly problematic, DCI-P, which is the Palestinian branch of the Geneva-based organization that says its mission is to "promote and protect the rights of Palestinian children", has ties to the Popular Front of the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), which has been designated as a terror group by the United States, the European Union, Canada and Israel.
Both Tlaib and Omar support a resolution affirming the right of Americans to participate in boycotts and have expressed support for the BDS movement.
"Trump has told Rashida and Ilhan to go back to their home countries". Asked later if he had spoken to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he said, "I did talk to people over there", without elaborating.
The government then granted her permission for the objective of "a humanitarian visit" on the condition she promised to not promote boycotts against the country. She said they planned to meet with Jewish and Arab members of the Israeli parliament plus other Israeli officials.
Netanyahu might be hoping for a similar jolt ahead of next month's polls, which were called after he failed to form a coalition government. "Several days ago, we received [Omar and Tlaib's] trip itinerary", he said in a statement, "which clarified that they planned a visit whose sole objective was to support boycotts and deny Israel's legitimacy". In an extraordinary move, Netanyahu, with a push from Trump, barred entry for Democratic Reps.
