WATCH: Maxine Waters Goes Off The Rails, Threatens ‘Political Violence’ If Trump Wins

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) declared over the weekend that if former President Donald Trump wins re-election that “millions” of people will be threatened and “killings” will happen.

Waters made the remarks during a Sunday interview on MSNBC when asked about if she was concerned about her personal safety if Trump were to win.

“I’m very concerned, not only about my safety and not only about the safety of members of Congress,” she claimed. “I’m concerned about the safety of so many people in this country, particularly people of color. Donald Trump has said that if he does not win, it is going to be fraud, and because it is going to be fraud, there will be blood in the streets. He threatens about a civil war, and he threatens there’s going to be violence.”

“I would say all of this talk is motivational with many of those who are racist, who are sitting at home listening to him, and they are taking him up on his threats even before the elections take place,” she continued. “It is about thousands, maybe millions of people being threatened and being at risk because of Donald Trump and his desire to seek revenge on anything and everybody.”

She claimed that Trump’s words, combined with the January 6 riot, would lead to “more killings” happening.

“I think Donald Trump has to take responsibility for what he is saying about blood in the streets and violence if he is not elected to be the president of the United States of America,” she said.
