Waters, one of the most outspoken President Trump critics in Congress, recently caused a controversy when she called on her supporters to harass members of the Trump administration whenever they are out in public.
"If you see anybody from that 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, and you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters said at a June rally in Los Angeles.
