Maxine Waters: I Threaten Trump Supporters ‘All the Time’
Maxine Waters: I threaten Trump supporters 'all the time' (The Hill)
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) mockingly said in a speech last weekend that she she threatens Trump supporters all the time, defending her comments in June urging supporters to harass members of President Trump's administration.
Waters said she was not threatening Trump supporters or constituents when she called on people to confront Trump Cabinet members and supporters in June — and said President Trump was wrong to accuse her of doing so at the time.
"I did not threaten [Trump] constituents and supporters. I do that all the time, but I didn't do that that time," Waters said to laughter from a crowd in Los Angeles.
