Tlaib said at an event hours after she was sworn in that lawmakers will work to impeachTrump, and used a vulgarity to describe him.
Earlier on Friday Trump tweeted a response to Tlaib's comment in which he asked how Congress could impeach a president "who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time".
"We're going to go in there, and we're going to impeach the motherf--er", the MI freshman congresswoman said to rapturous applause from a group of supporters just hours after she was sworn into the 116th Congress.
Tlaib, who represents a liberal district in Detroit, exclaimed at an event late Thursday that Democrats were going to "impeach the mother--".

More than Tlaib's profanity, it was her vow to impeach Trump that drew her colleagues' disapproval.

Still, it will be hard for Pelosi to quiet some on her left flank who see their new majority as a direct challenge to Trump. "No matter what this President says or does, it seems to take our focus away from the harm & pain we allow him to cause our people", she tweeted.
After the furor over the comment hit social media, Tlaib responded from her Twitter account on Friday. But Tlaib and her classmates have been celebrated in magazine profiles for their independence and their promises to stand up to the powers that be. Newly minted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on the Today Show Thursday that it could depend on the results of the special counsel's investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation. "As elected officials I think we should be expected to set a high bar..." "He wins when we do it".
Trump also talked about United States military and nation-building tactics overseas.
During her swearing in, Tlaib wore a Palestinian gown called a thobe.
Sherman criticized the tenor of Tlaib's remarks but defended pushing for impeachment.
But it's no secret that many Democrats - and many Americans in general - believe Trump should and will be impeached. "Obviously, I am a member of Congress and things that I say are elevated on a national level, and I understand that very clearly".
That changed, however, after US President Donald Trump announced last month that US forces will be leaving Syria. After discussions with the president and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen.
