US Congresswoman Tlaib wears Palestinian traditional dress to Trump’s Union address

US Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib wore Palestinian traditional dress to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address.
Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to Congress, published a photo of herself dressed in a white thobe before entering the Congress Hall on Tuesday.
“There is no right or wrong way to protest,” she tweeted, adding: “I’m joining my sisters in Congress in wearing white-my white #PalestinianThobe–to #SOTU.”

At least ten Democrats boycotted Trump’s State of the Union address on the eve of a Senate vote which acquitted him in the impeachment trial.
