Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters claimed Sunday that Republicans will have to “pay a price” for not standing up to President Trump and his “racism.”


Waters, appearing on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” said, “Joy, thank you very much for having me on this morning and continuing this discussion about the racism that is being led by the President of the United States of America. His Republican colleagues know that he’s a racist, they know that he is not capable of providing leadership for this country, they know that he has alienated our allies, and they know that he’s wrapped his arms around Russia and Putin. And so, they cannot credibly come before the American public and defend him. They’re all shrinking in the background.”

“They don’t want to confront him or do what the people elected him to do and that is even insure that we have a president that is capable, competent and sane–otherwise he should be impeached. And so, if they don’t step up to the plate, the American public is going to have to force this issue of what to do about this president.” (RELATED: Maxine Waters Jokes That She Wants To ‘Take Trump Out’ [VIDEO])

“Yes, they’re in hiding. Yes, they don’t know how to deal with this issue. Yes, some of them are intimidated by him–only thinking about their re-elections, but the fact of the matter is they are all going to have to pay a price for the fact that they are allowing this president to mislead this country and to continually divide us and to roll out with these racist statements…” (RELATED: Maxine Waters: Trump Is ‘The Most Despicable Human Being That Could Possibly Ever Walk The Earth’ [VIDEO])
