California Rep. Maxine Waters said President Trump is trying to “intimidate all of us” during an appearance on MSNBC Sunday.
“You know, this president is a bully, and he will try to intimidate all of us. He is not going to shut down anything. As a matter of fact, people will remember that he said he was going to build this wall and he was going to make Mexico pay for the wall. They said they weren’t going to pay for anything. Now, he wants the American citizens to pay for this will.”
“American citizens are not going to pay for this wall, he is not going to shut down the government, and we are not going to be intimidated by his bluffing and bullying.”
Waters’ claim that Trump is the one trying to intimidate others may sound strange to those who have watched her own public appearances in recent months. (RELATED: Maxine Waters: People Should Be ‘Out In The Streets Screaming’ Over Trump)
In June, she said, “If you see anybody from [Trumps’] cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station — you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!” (RELATED: Maxine Waters: God Is On The Side Of People Driving Trump Officials From Restaurants)
