(CNSNews.com) - Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D.-Mich.) sent out a pair of tweets on Saturday in which she told Detroit police chief James Craig to “honor Detroiters”—as they protest—or resign and said that she had been “inspired” by the ongoing protests in that city.

“Just today Chief Craig was on Fox News & equated Detroit’s historic protest movement w/terrorizing our communities,” Tlaib said in one tweet.

“He sounds like the impeached President,” she said.

“Chief Craig, ours is a city where movements are birthed, not suppressed,” she said.

“Honor Detroiters or step aside,” Tlaib said to the police chief.

“The fight to demilitarize the police is as much national as it is local,” Tlaib said in a follow-up tweet.

“I’ve been inspired by the 100+ days of protest for justice in Detroit,” she said. “Meanwhile the Police Chief suppresses free speech and bashes protesters on Fox News while welcoming Trump’s federal agents with open arms.”
