Democrat politicians such as California Representative Maxine Waters are getting increasingly anxious over public opinion polls showing black voter support for President Trump is growing.
Waters expressed her concerns about black voter support for President Trump with Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley during an online event.
Rep. Maxine Waters: "I have worked with Crips and Bloods and gang members and all of that, bringing them along, helping to connect them to all kinds of possibilities — and I've never encountered any of them who were as bad as the President of the United States of America." pic.twitter.com/x2JCMK3t8l

During a radio interview over the weekend, Waters issued a threat to young black males who support President Trump.
Responding to the trend, Waters threatened black men by saying, “Any of them showing their face, I will never ever forgive them for undermining the possibility to help their own people and their own communities.”

Waters also called President Trump a racist during the interview and said he “has emboldened white supremacists.”
The Washington Examiner reports:
During the interview, she added that Trump has emboldened white supremacists and KKK members and that voters need to vote against the incumbent candidate, or the country will “go backwards.”
Waters was criticized on social media.
Maxine Waters is a career Democrat who had done absolutely nothing to help her own districts & constituents. She is profited from her political power, while Black communities she represents suffer. The Black communities should never forgive Maxine Waters.https://t.co/49nowYVX0C

More importantly she has forgotten who serves who?
I don’t need her forgiveness, she works for me.
