“That has been a problem with our party. When we’re in power, we’re too nice.” – Maxine Waters (D-CA)
Jacob Soboroff of MSNBC asked Congresswoman Waters if she were asked by Trump to sit down and meet with him would she? Waters replied, “Oh no, I won’t go. I’m not gonna sit down with him, I’m not gonna go. I’m not gonna pretend. I’m not pretending.”
“I don’t trust him, I don’t believe him, I have no intention of sitting down with him, I’m going to fight him every inch of the way and I’m gonna show the American people they too cannot trust him…”
