In an unexpected encounter, Tlaib moved to Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 Republican House, and GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York, in a series of votes.
Tlaib, a Michigan Democrat, woke up in their hands and then talked for over five minutes, while the trio stood in the middle of the room with members who were around them. While their discussion was not heard, the encounters were seen by reporters who were watching the floor and were taken to a video feed.
Speaking to CNN shortly after the talks on the floor, Tlaib did not discuss details of their private discussions Zeldin told CNN that a "honest" conversation with which Cheney and Tlaib "shares their thoughts back and forth from the last days."
"I think most of the fourth graders know what the Holocaust is, and it does not seem to be," Cheney Tuesday told Fox News.
And early Wednesday, Cheney and Zeldin urged Tlaib's recent comments at a news conference as they prepared to take a step-by-step approach to fighting the anti-Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.
"We have seen an increase in anti-Semitic violence globally during the past few years, and now we are seeing an increase in Congress halls in a kind of stubborn and evil anti-Semitism," Told by Cheney in the event.
Meanwhile, Democratic leaders defended Tlaib and pushed against GOP leaders, including President Donald Trump, who learned that the Republics took Tlaib from context.
A spokesman for Cheney announced the floor talks on Wednesday at Tlaib as a "explicit exchange of views," and added that "the views of Congresswoman Cheney have not changed."
Zeldin said he did not think "but mentioned" the dialogue is always good, especially when it's true. "
" I'm happy that the conversation is taking place in the center of the house as opposed in a room where one can spun any other way, because a sincere conversation took place ̵
"There is a kind of calming feeling that I always say to people when I think of the Holocaust, and the Holocaust tragedy, and the fact that my ancestors, Palestinians, have lost their land and the some have lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, are lost, and passports of people, "said Tlaib.
He continued, "I mean, all of which are in the name of the effort to create a safe shelter for Jews, post-Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews around the world at that time, and I love that fact that my ancestors have given, right, in many ways But they did it in a way that took their human dignity, and it was forced into them. And so when I think about a one-state, I think the truth is, why can not we do it better? "
Critics described his comments as anti-Semitic and inaccurate in history. Tlaib appears to make statements about Palestinians who provide a "safe refuge" for Jews fleeing Europe before the establishment of the modern state of Israel, despite deep opposition during the settlement of the Jews there and the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians
In his part, Trump said his comments were "terrible and totally indifferent" and showed "the massive hatred of Israel and the Jews. "
Cheney issued a Sunday statement stating that Tlaib's comments were "offensive" calling Democratic leaders "act" against him.
Tlaib defended his comments on Sunday, and his spokesman said Cheney "should be ashamed of himself for the use of the Holocaust tragedy in a transparent attempt to score political points."
Tlaib also defended his comments in a Monday night form on NBC's "Late Night" host Seth Meyers.
"You know, the Holocaust tragedy – I mean, the reason why Israel was created is to create a safe haven for Jews around the world and there is one thing, in many ways, good about in my ancestors – many died or had to recover their livelihood, their human dignity to provide safe shelter for Jews in our world, "he said. "And that's what I want to recognize and kind of honor in a certain way."
