‘I don’t know why people take it…Do something. Make something happen…’
(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., urged Americans to take to the streets and demand an end to the Trump administration in an interview.
Waters said she won’t let the Trump White House intimidate her on CNBC during a segment with John Harwood.
She said Americans need to “make something happen.”
“I think he’s dangerous,” she said. “I don’t know why people take it. I think Americans should be out in the streets screaming to the top of their voice. Do something. Make something happen.”
Waters has been vocally critical of Trump since the election, and Trump has singled her out recently, calling her an “extraordinarily low-IQ person” in a tweet.
When asked why she thinks Trump frequently attacks her, Waters said the President was “racist.”
“A lot of people call it racism,” she said. “A lot of people call it — tactics that he has employed — that he’s gotten from the Kremlin and Putin, and the way that they handle things.”
Waters said Trump doesn’t intimidate her and that she’s never going to stop calling for his impeachment.
“I don’t care what he says. He can do whatever he wants to. I know what I’m going to think about him. I think that this man does not deserve to be the president of the United States. He is one of the most deplorable people I’ve ever encountered in my life,” she said.
Harwood asked if Democrats would try to impeach Trump if they took the House in the upcoming midterm election, and Waters responded by saying she thinks Trump is “certainly eligible for impeachment.”
Waters came under fierce criticism from both parties after encouraging Democrats to physically harass Trump supporters.
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she said in June.
Trump responded and warned her to “be careful” what she asked for.
“He can call me whatever he wants do,” Waters said on CNBC. “He does not intimidate me, and I’m not gonna stop talking about him.”
