California AG: Trump Should ‘Be Careful’ If He’s Ever In ‘A Dark Alley With Maxine Waters’

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in an MSNBC interview Monday that President Trump should “be careful” if he was in “a dark alley with Maxine Waters.”


“I think Donald Trump probably said that from about 2,000 miles away from Maxine Waters because he’s probably too afraid to say it to her face,” Becerra said of comments Trump made during a speech over the weekend. “Maxine Waters has been one of the greatest champions that consumers have ever had, that families have ever had.” (RELATED: Maxine Waters Complains About Trump’s Name-Calling, Labels Him ‘Con Man Don’)

“I suspect that Donald Trump would be afraid to come up to her and actually say something like that to her, because Maxine Waters won’t stand for that,” he continued. “It’s unfortunate that he uses that kind of language about someone who’s been a public servant for so many years, someone who’s fought very hard.”

“Just because he disagrees with her doesn’t mean he has to use derogatory language. But again, Maxine can take care of herself, and I would urge Donald Trump to be careful if he ever finds himself in a dark alley with Maxine Waters.” (RELATED: Maxine Waters Promises Reparations For Black Americans)
