Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, of California, told a crowd in New York recently that she will “take out” President Trump, according to an online video released last week, Fox News reports.
“Wow, what a moving evening this is,” said Waters at an Oct. 13 event at the Ali Forney Center in New York City.
“I’m sitting here listening, watching, absorbing, thinking about Ali even though I never met him. And with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take Trump out tonight,” she added.
The California lawmaker has maintained that President Donald Trump should be impeached, more recently over his dissent with NFL players who knelt for the national anthem to protest racial injustices against black Americans.
“We face unprecedented challenges today in our struggle against HIV and AIDS and I want you to know those people in Congress on the opposite side of the aisle from me control every branch of our federal government,” Waters said, according to The American Mirror. “And we have, unfortunately, an unstable, erratic person in the White House.”
“We don’t know what this president will do, or say, or tweet from one day to the next. Don’t forget, this is not a political event, but I’m heading toward impeachment,” Waters continued.
“Another challenge we face today is Republicans’ determination to repeal the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare,” said the Democratic legislator.
“Without Obamacare, insurance companies will once again be able to deny care to the people living with HIV and other pre-existing conditions. Furthermore, without Obamacare states like California that expanded Medicaid will not be able to cover low-income adults living with HIV.
“And so, the House Republicans’ Obamacare repeal bill which passed the House in May will cut $100 billion from Medicaid and cause 23 million Americans to lose their health insurance,” Waters, 79, added. “So far, the Senate has been great. It has refused to pass the bill.”
