Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., fired back at President Donald Trump, saying "he undermines our democracy" and is "focused on a hate agenda."

Tlaib made her comments in a column for The Washington Post Monday evening. She was one of four progressive congresswomen recently singled out in attacks by Trump.

"President Trump has found new targets for his harmful distraction through unhinged tweets and speeches: me and some of my colleagues in the U.S. House," she said. "You all know what he said: We do not love this country. He told us, in effect, to go back where we came from. (I actually go home to Detroit every week.) He has even gone so far as to call me a 'crazed lunatic.'

"This behavior is sadly familiar — almost every day, he disgraces his office with rhetoric rooted in hate. He did it again this weekend when he trashed the city of Baltimore. While my colleagues and I work on ways to improve the lives of our constituents, he is focused on a hate agenda for our country."

And she added that with "every hate-fueled tweet, he gets us off track as we try to hold him and his reckless administration accountable."

She maintained when Trump "misleads the American people" and doesn't comply with subpoenas, "he undermines our democracy, creating a dangerous precedent that the president is above the law."

She claimed the president cares little about the Constitution. And she again called on the House to "begin an impeachment inquiry."
