Maxine Waters, the Internet’s Political Auntie, Won’t Back Down on Trump - Broadly
The more she learned more about Trump’s past—specifically the allegations that he had practiced racial discrimination on his properties, cheated contractors and other employees who he’d hired to work on his projects, and committed fraud with Trump University—the more she came to vocalize her opposition to his campaign and political presence.
“He is everything that this country should not be about, and when the inauguration took place, I made it very public and very clear that I would not attend [it], or the following joint session of Congress that he addressed,” she said. “I did not honor him, I did not respect him, and I did not participate in any way in welcoming him into this position as president.”
Pointing to Trump’s “tweeting” and “lying,” Waters said he continues to prove he is not fit for the office.
“I believe that he and his allies colluded with Russia to undermine our election system and hack into our DNC,” she said. “If not collusion, then he has at least committed obstruction of justice. All of our intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia did hack into the DNC and to other election systems around the country. All of that certainly makes him the last person who should be president.”
