Rep. Maxine Waters says Trump Is Calling For His Own Impeachment with His Actions

Like many outspoken critics of President Donald Trump, Rep. Maxine Waters has had it up to here with the newly elected U.S. leader and expresses hopes that his latest actions will eventually lead to his impeachment.

Waters told reporters on Monday, Feb. 6, that Trump’s antics were “leading him” to possibly being booted from office, piggy-backing off of comments from last week, when she tweeted that her “greatest desire was to lead @realDoanldTrump right into impeachment.”

“I have not called for the impeachment yet,” Waters said when asked about her comment at a press conference on Monday. “He’s doing it himself.

“Let me just say that the statement I made was a statement in response to questions and pleas that I’m getting from many citizens across this country,” she continued. “‘What are we going to do? How can a president act in the manner that he’s acting?’”

The California Democrat also expressed concern over Trump’s recent travel ban order, which permanently barred Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. and temporarily halted all travel from seven Muslim-majority nations. The ban sparked nationwide outrage, prompting thousands of Americans to rally in support of those affected by the order. Waters also criticized Trump for making derogatory comments about Muslims and made sure to point out his questionable friendship with Russian Leader Vladmir Putin.

“I think that he’s leading himself in that kind of position, where folks are going to ask, ‘What are we going to do?’ and the answer is going to be, ‘Eventually, we’ve got to do something about him,’” she said. “We cannot continue to have a president who’s acting in this manner. It’s dangerous to the United States of America.”

House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi wasn’t as gung-ho about spearheading efforts to impeach Trump, however. She told reporters during the same news conference Monday that impeachment would only be an option “when and if” Trump breaks the law, CNN reported.
