US Congresswoman regrets booing Hillary Clinton
US Congresswoman regrets booing Hillary Clinton

Washington, Feb 2 (TIWN) Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-American Congresswoman, has said that she regrets booing former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at an earlier event in Iowa, the media reported on Sunday.

It follows some criticism after footage of Friday's event was posted on Twitter by an audience member. Ms Tlaib, also a Democrat, led the booing in response to Ms Clinton saying in a documentary that "nobody likes" presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders.  Ms Tlaib later said that she had allowed her feelings about Ms Clinton's remarks "to get the best of me".  "I know what is at stake if we don't unify over one candidate to beat [President Donald] Trump and I intend to do everything possible to ensure that Trump does not win in 2020," she tweeted.  "In this instance, I allowed my disappointment with Secretary Clinton's latest comments about Senator Sanders and his supporters get the best of me. You all, my sisters-in-service on stage, and our movement deserve better."
