Maxine Waters Cancels Events After She Received a ‘Very Serious’ Death Threat

On Thursday Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) announced she has canceled two upcoming events after receiving a “very serious death threat.” This comes days after she invited liberals to accost members of the Trump administration when they meet them in a public setting.

Per Washington Examiner:

“As the President has continued to lie and falsely claim that I encouraged people to assault his supporters, while also offering a veiled threat that I should ‘be careful’, even more individuals are leaving (threatening) messages and sending hostile mail to my office,” she said in a statement.

“There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were cancelled (sic) this weekend,” she continued. “This is just one in several very serious threats the United States Capitol Police is investigating in which individuals threatened to shoot, lynch, or cause me serious bodily harm.”

At a rally on Saturday, Waters encouraged the people in attendance to harass members of the Trump administration. Even fellow Democrats have pushed back on this statement.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd,” she continued. “And you push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!”

Later on Waters claimed she wasn’t calling for violence, but instead rather peaceful protests. She also called the President a liar for saying she called for harm.

This was sparked when White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant since she is a part of the Trump administration.
