Waters Says Trump’s ‘Disturbing’ Budget is Going to Wreak Havoc on America

Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) / AP


Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) said that President Donald Trump's budget proposal will wreak havoc on America in an interview with Cheddar on Friday.

Waters was asked what her biggest concern was with the budget that was just presented by the Trump administration.

"Unfortunately, we have been presented with a budget that's going to wreak havoc on this country and I'm very, very surprised that the budget cuts that are indicated in this proposal are going to hurt the very people that this president said he wanted to help," Waters said. She also described Trump's budget as "absolutely disturbing" and "devastating."

Waters has been fighting President Trump since he was elected and has called him and some of his senior aides "scumbags." Waters has already called for him to be impeached, even though she has no evidence to sustain such a proposal. Many Democratic leaders have distanced themselves from her comments.
