Maxine Waters demands Trump’s impeachment at Tax March event

Maxine-Waters

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) joined protesters at Saturday’s Tax March in Washington and called for President Trump to be impeached.

Protesters all across the country are gathering on the traditionally recognized deadline to file taxes, April 15, and demanding for Trump to release his tax returns.

The California congresswoman gave a speech to a fired-up crowd and vocalized her support for the president to be impeached. which she has frequently advocated since he took office.

Waters first remarked days after Trump was sworn in that her “greatest desire is to lead [Trump] right into impeachment.” Then, she renewed the call again in March that Trump should be impeached if evidence emerges that he worked with Russia to win the election. A short time later she tweeted “get ready for impeachment.”

At Saturday’s Tax March event, Waters shouted in front of  the crowd, “I don’t respect this president. I don’t trust this president. He’s not working in the best interests of the American people.”

“I will fight every day until he is impeached,” she added, before leading the crowd in chants of “impeach 45.

The outspoken Democrat also used the Tax March event as a platform to call Trump a “liar” for not releasing his tax returns because of an audit, though the IRS claims nothing prevents individuals from releasing their personal tax information.

She argued that the issue of him not divulging his taxes leaves too many questions unanswered regarding his debts he may owe, alleged “business entanglements” or “conflicts of interest.” Waters also accused Trump of taking advantage of “loopholes and tricks” to avoid paying taxes.

“Show the people your taxes. Stop stonewalling, stop hiding,” Waters said.

During her rant, she went on to criticize the president for his recent decision to not make the White House visitor’s log public, which Trump’s team announced Friday. Then, Waters blasted him about making frequent weekend trips to his Mar-A-Lago golf course, where he has had important meetings with several world leaders.

“We know one thing, you do know you know something about taxes,” she said. “Donald Trump, you sure know how to spend our taxes on your weekly trips to Mar-A-Lago,” she said.

Below is the video of her full speech, where she launched into a tirade of accusations at Trump, including claiming he’s paying “nothing” in taxes.

Before attending the Tax March Saturday morning, Waters made an appearance on MSNBC to talk with Joy Reid about why she thinks “Trump is going down” and discussed the importance of Americans rising up and resisting the Trump presidency to hold him accountable every step of the way.
