Rashida Tlaib was speaking at an event in MI on Thursday afternoon when she made her statement about the president. Ms Tlaib, 42, is one in a cadre of ebullient, media-savvy rising stars - the self-described "radical" Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is another - who aim to shake up Washington's status quo. They are unlikely to get a vote on the House floor, at least for now.
Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters, a frequent target of Trump's ire, said of Tlaib comments: "I think what we need to do is have more attention on the President and the way that he speaks, the language that he uses".
Republicans seized on Tlaib's remarks to criticize Democrats for playing politics with impeachment.
Aside from the latest developments, most reports indicate that House Democratic leaders will wait for Robert Mueller's report on his investigation of Trump, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi adding that "We shouldn't be impeaching for a political reason, and we shouldn't avoid impeachment for a political reason".
It is not the first time Tlaib has called for Trump's impeachment, including an article written in a Detroit newspaper, also on Thursday.
As a long-time Trump critic, Ms Tlaib made calls for his impeachment central to her campaign - and was once arrested for heckling the then-candidate during his White House run. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said he doesn't think "comments like these particularly help".
"And when your son looks at you and says mama, look you won, bullies don't win, I said baby they don't because we're going to go in there and we're going to impeach the mother fucker".More news: Train accident on Danish bridge kills six

"I think that the office of the presidency should be treated with respect", he said.
"If you're unapologetic about your comments, congresswoman, why not talk to us?" asked one reporter as she walked away.
The president also said that he did not recognize her name, saying, "This is a person I do not know, I assume she's new".
"'The time for impeachment proceedings is now", the column concludes'.
Virginia Rep. Gerry Connolly said the comments were just "red meat" for Tlaib's supporters.
"I think some of our new members probably don't realize that you are always on, that when you are a member of Congress, there's always someone listening", said Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill.
Sherman said that her comments were "not something I would say", though he was still pushing for impeachment.
