FOX News: Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi distanced herself after Maxine Waters had earlier recommended going after Trump administration personnel over the Immigration policy. She also took to the Senate floor to say that harassment of political opponents was “not right” and “not American.”
Excerpt from FOX News:
“One of the things I recognize, being an elected official, is in the final analysis, leadership … will do anything that they think is necessary to protect their leadership and so what I have to do is not focus on them,” Waters told MSNBC.
Waters attracted criticism from Republicans last weekend after she told rally-goers in her Los Angeles congressional district that members of the public should confront members of the Trump administration and “tell them they’re not welcome.” Waters made the remarks after White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen left a different restaurant after protesters began shouting at her.
