On Wednesday, bombs were reportedly sent to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) California and Washington, D.C. offices.
President Donald Trump condemned bombs being sent but then turned around and attacked some of the victims the bombs were sent to.
Waters said that she is not "scared" in the face of terror.
"I think the president of United States should take responsibility for the kind of violence that we are seeing for the first time in different ways," Waters told Blavity. "I think the president of the United States has been dog-whistling to his constituency, making them believe that their problems are caused by those people over there. And I think they are acting in a way that they think the president wants them to do and the way he wants them to act."
She added, "I don’t know whether the bombs are real or not but we should not crawl under [the] bed, close the doors, not go out, [and] be afraid to go to rallies."
"We have to keep doing what we’re doing in order to make this country right. That’s what I intend to do and as the young people say, 'I ain’t scared,'" she said.
