House Rep. Maxine Waters has been a vocal critic of President Trump for years now, often pushing the envelope on what Americans consider to be acceptable political discourse in this modern day.
Waters first made waves by suggesting that her “resistance” minded constituents should band together to make Republicans and conservatives in general feel “unwelcome” whenever and wherever they are encountered. This led to a number of incidents in which members of the Trump administration were chased out of restaurants by angry mobs of leftists.
Now, Waters is suggesting that the federal law enforcement officers currently deployed in Portland could be part of a dry run meant to keep Trump in the White House, even if he loses the 2020 election.
Monday on MSNBC, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) responded to President Donald Trump’s comments about not accepting the election results.take our poll - story continues below
Waters said, “I have said all along that this man is a deplorable human being. Certainly, there’s nothing that he could say that would shock me anymore. So he’s already, you know, basically talked about, perhaps, there might be a civil war, and when we tells you he cannot commit to stepping down, believe him. Believe him because I tell you, something is going on in this country. When I take a look at what is going on in Oregon, and who are these federal agents, unidentified, in unmarked cars, that are raining down on the protesters? Who are these people are they organized by and with the president of the United States? Are there more of them? Are they in practice for what they’re going to do when they resist the fact that this president, perhaps, is not going to be re-elected?”
Waters is just the latest Democrats to suggest that Trump could ignore the results of the coming election and choose to remain in office, belying a concerted effort by the liberal left to paint the President as a dictator-in-waiting.
