Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) made the case that America can’t wait for the next president. Donald Trump must be impeached now.
Rep. Waters said:
This president wakes up in the morning and tweets policy. He does not work with his experts, he does not work with his personnel. He is creating public policy on his own by himself in whatever way he decides it should go in the morning when he wakes up. This is outrageous. He is absolutely being destructive to this country. I don’t know why people are not screaming in the streets about what we are experiencing with this president. I have said all along, he is a dishonorable man, a despicable human being, he has no good values, he’s dangerous, he does not care about our democracy, he’s is aligned with Putin, he likes the strong man and the dictators of the world. That’s who he’s looking to be friends with because he’s just like them and he wants to be just like them. He wants to run this country like them.
We’ve got to push back. We’ve got to say no. I, for example, have stepped way out there. I said this man needs to be impeached. I know a lot of people think we’re not ready to say that. Some people have said a long time ago he would become presidential. He will never be presidential. This man does not have any good I believe he needs to be impeached. As a matter of fact, a long time before he’s doing what he’s doing now with these children. I think he had done enough to undermine this country and to have us understand we cannot trust him, that we should have come with an impeachment resolution. So, I believe we cannot wait until the next presidential election we have to resist him. I want to see him impeached.
Trump policy of family separation could be an impeachable offense. The case that Waters is making gets stronger with each action that Trump takes. The question that needs to be asked is can the United States handle two plus more years of the Trump presidency? If the answer is no, it is time for impeachment.
