Rep. Maxine Waters Says She’ll ‘Never Forgive’ Black Male Trump Supporters: They Will Go Down In History As Having Done The Most Despicable Thing

Rep. Maxine Waters Says She’ll ‘Never Forgive’ Black Male Trump Supporters: They Will Go Down In History As Having Done The Most Despicable Thing

It’s no secret Rep. Maxine Waters isn’t Donald Trump’s biggest fan. But in a recent interview, she said that she hates to see blacks, especially black men, support the president.

Maxine Waters said while on The Joe Madison Show: 

“It just hurts me so bad to see Blacks talking about supporting Trump. I don’t know why they would be doing it. I don’t know what’s on their minds, but if we don’t turn out this vote and turn it out huge, this man could end up winning again. And this country would go backward. The divisiveness that this deplorable human being has caused, the confrontation, the dog-whistling to the right-wing, the white supremacists, the KKK, and they’re coming alive. They’re emboldened because they’ve got a leader who wants them to do it.”

She went on to share her thoughts on black men who are voting for Donald Trump in the crucial election.

“Black men who don’t understand if they’re not listening to you, if they’re not listening to our voices they have a price to pay. The years to come, if they help put Trump over, and help him get elected, they will go down in history as having done the most despicable thing to their families, and to their communities, and to their mothers and their grandmothers….They will shamefully be accused of having attributed to the lack of equality life for the people they claim to love so much.”

She continued to blast Donald Trump and how he’s treated the black community.

“He’s a racist. He does not have any appreciation for Black people and Black women in particular. He’s talked about it so bad. He talked about John Lewis so bad. He talked about Cummings so bad. He has no respect for us. He’s not doing anything for us.”

She ended with:

“And for those Black young men who think somehow they can align themselves with Trump. Trump, not only their [sic]. 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. It is absolutely unconscionable. It is shameful, but if they would spend some time with us, we would help them to know what we’re struggling for and how they would be able to help us in this struggle.”
