Tlaib Rejects Israeli Invitation - Cancels Trip

Democratic Rep.

Rashida Tlaib said she won't accept Israel's offer to let her into the country to visit her grandmother on the West Bank.

Israel's Interior Minister, Aryeh Deri, had said earlier on Friday that he would approve Tlaib's entry on humanitarian grounds.

The approval came even after the country initially said she would be banned.

President Donald Trump also publicly urged Israel to ban her and fellow Rep.

Ilhan Omar from entering the country for a visit.
