Rashida Tlaid says Donald Trump's rhetoric has caused damage that will take years to address.

Donald Trump came to Detroit to give a speech. For Michiganders opposed to Trump and what he stands for, it was a chance to speak back. 

Some 300 protestors gathered to chant outside Cobo Center as Trump spoke to the Detroit Economic Club. 

And nearly 20 women took their protest inside, interrupting Trump and eventually getting escorted outside by Secret Service. 

Among those kicked out of Monday's speech was former Democratic State Representative Rashida Tlaib, who was there as a part of Moms Against Trump.

In our conversation above, Tlaib tells us about the crowd's response to the protestors' interruptions, and some of the issues she and other Moms Against Trump are concerned about. 

GUEST Rashida Tlaib is a former Democratic state representative and current community partnerships and development director at the Sugar Law Center for Economic and Social Justice. She tweets @RashidaTlaib.
