Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) predicted on Friday that President Donald Trump “will get worse” because of the lack of impeachment proceedings.
Waters, who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, was interviewed on MSNBC by Chris Hayes.
“I want to switch gears on the last question here, just to talk about what’s happened over the last several days with the president’s attacks on your colleagues, the chants of ‘Send her Back,’ which the president sort of very, very tepidly and meekly sort of disavowed yesterday, but then essentially reavowed today when given an opportunity to talk about it, he sort of reembraced his supporters who were chanting that,” Hayes noted.
“Well, you know, some people were shocked that the president could be so outwardly racist,” Waters replied. “So, you know, the fact of the matter is we’re trying to do everything that we can do to say that he really does not represent most of the people of this country in what he is doing and the way that he is attacking these women and the racism he is putting forward.”
“However, I, you, and others know that he has gotten worse. From the time that we first started to realize that he was identifying himself as an unworthy person, not worthy of the presidency, he has consistently gotten worse,” she argued.
“Because guess what? He basically came to the conclusion that we were not going to impeach him,” she continued.
“So he keeps going and he’ll get worse,” Waters predicted. “He is divisive and he is dangerous.”
“So all I can say is, and I hate to keep saying it, ‘I told you so.’ I started a long time ago — he clearly identified himself,” she noted.
“He should have been impeached. He has not been impeached. He is out of hand. He is going to keep going. This is his campaign that you see unfolding right now,” Waters added.

‘Making things worse’: National Farmer’s Union chief unloads on Trump in blistering statement on trade war
Roger Johnson, the president of the National Farmers Union, delivered a blistering rebuke to President Donald Trump after he responded to new tariffs from China by issuing a purported "order" telling American companies to look for alternative places to manufacture their goods.
In an official statement, Johnson pointed out that farmers so far have felt the brunt of the president's trade war, as China has slapped heavy tariffs on key agricultural products such as soybeans.
He also crushed the president for failing to make any progress on reopening the Chinese market to American goods.
Google tells workers to avoid arguing politics in house
Google on Friday told employees to focus on work instead of heated debates about politics with colleagues at the internet company, which has long been known for encouraging people to speak their minds.
Updated workplace guidelines for "Googlers" called on them to be responsible, helpful, and thoughtful during exchanges on internal message boards or other conversation forums.
"While sharing information and ideas with colleagues helps build community, disrupting the workday to have a raging debate over politics or the latest news story does not," the updated guidelines stated.
"Our primary responsibility is to do the work we?ve each been hired to do, not to spend working time on debates about non-work topics."
