During a speech Saturday at an immigration rally in California, U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters reacted defiantly to alleged threats reportedly directed at her following her previous remarks about the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.
Waters took the podium at the Families Belong Together rally in downtown Los Angeles, one of the many rallies staged across the country urging for the reunification of families who were separated at the U.S.-Mexico border, Fox News reports.
“I am not about to let this country go by the way of Donald Trump. … We are sick and tired of him. He’s been there too long. They dare me to say ‘Impeach him.’ Today I say, ‘Impeach 45.
“And I know that there are those who are talking about censuring me, talking about kicking me out of Congress, talking about shooting me, talking about hanging me. All I have to say is this: If you shoot me, you better shoot straight. There’s nothing like a wounded animal.”
Waters claimed on Thursday she was forced to pull out of events in Alabama and Texas after she received death threats.
“There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas, which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were cancelled (sic) this weekend,” the outspoken Trump critic said in a statement. “This is just one in several very serious threats the United States Capitol Police are investigating in which individuals threatened to shoot, lynch, or cause me serious bodily harm.”
Waters urged supporters at an event last Saturday to “create a crowd,” and “push back,” against Trump officials over the administration’s immigration policies, Breitbart REPORTS.
“Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!” ~ President Trump
