WASHINGTON — Sean Spicer said the congresswoman who suggested President Trump was “leading himself to impeachment” because of his executive orders is proof that Democrats “missed the message voters sent in November.”



Rep. Maxine Waters said that the president was “leading himself to impeachment” because of his “unconstitutional” executive order on immigration and potential ties to Vladimir Putin. The White House press secretary said Tuesday that he had no response to her remarks, but then thought better of it and said this.

“No,” Spicer said, before adding, “I would just say, look, the president is doing everything he can to move this country forward, and I think whether it’s the Democrats in the Senate who are trying to stall the nominees, or these political stunts on the House side, the bottom line is I think you see the support that the president is receiving for his policies throughout the country.”

“It’s because people recognize that A) business as usual is over and that the president’s commitment to both keeping the country safe and growing the economy, creating jobs is something that is welcome by all Americans, regardless of party. When you see stuff like that, you realize that they really missed the message that voters sent this November.”
