Maxine Waters Suggests in Church Sermon That She Was Sent by God to Stop Trump
'When God sends you to do something, you just do it!'
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has been one of President Trump's most outspoken critics, recently going so far as to encourage people to publicly harass members of the Trump administration.
On Sunday, however, Waters suggested in a church sermon in Los Angeles that she's on a divine mission to stop the president, blasting the Trump administration on a range of issues.
Addressing the congregation at First AME Church, Waters said, “You’ve gotta know that I’m here to do the work that I was sent to do, and as pastor said to me when I came in this morning, ‘When God sends you to do something, you just do it!'” she exclaimed to cheers from the crowd.
“So, I have a message. I’m going back to Washington tomorrow morning. I’m going to tell them pastor told me to come here and just do it!” she concluded.
Waters told the congregation that "Russia elected this president," then blasted Trump for his private meeting with Vladimir Putin and his stance toward NATO.
"We never dreamed we’d have someone in the White House who was divisive, who could not tell the truth, and who was intent on not making America great again, but taking America down!" she said.
Waters also criticized Trump's policies on health care and the separation of migrant families at the Mexican border.
Just last week, a group of demonstrators burned and stomped on an American flag outside Waters' L.A. office while shouting, “America was never great!”
The protesters had showed up to counter a planned demonstration against Waters by the Oath Keepers, but the far-right group ended up no-showing.
