Maxine Waters Warns Of Violence If Trump Wins 2024 Election

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) did her usual out-of-touch fearmongering routine on MSNBC’s “The Saturday Show,” warning about potential violence and civil unrest should President Donald Trump win the November 2024 election.

Host Jonathan Capehart asked Waters about her safety concerns if Trump were to be re-elected. “I’m very concerned, not only about my safety and not only about the safety of members of Congress. I’m concerned about the safety of so many people in this country, particularly people of color,” Waters responded.

Waters cited Trump’s previous statements suggesting that a loss would be due to fraud, which he claimed would result in “blood in the streets” and potential civil war. “He threatens about a civil war, and he threatens there’s going to be violence,” she noted. Waters argued that such rhetoric motivates racists and extremists, who might act on these threats even before the election takes place.

“I would say all of this talk is motivational with many of those who are racist, who are sitting at home listening to him, and they are taking him up on his threats even before the elections take place. It is about thousands, maybe millions of people being threatened and being at risk because of Donald Trump and his desire to seek revenge on anything and everybody,” Waters added.

Reflecting on the January 6 insurrection, Waters warned that a Trump victory could lead to similar violent incidents. “I do believe having listened to Donald Trump so many times and having the attack, the insurrection that took place on the House of Representatives in Congress, on the Capitol, the Capitol grounds, we could be in for more killings like that,” she stated.

Waters called on Trump to take responsibility for his inflammatory remarks. “I think Donald Trump has to take responsibility for what he is saying about blood in the streets and violence if he is not elected to be the president of the United States of America,” she concluded.

The comments come as the nation remains deeply divided and tensions continue to simmer ahead of the 2024 presidential election. Waters’ statements highlight the ongoing concerns about political violence and the potential for further unrest in an already polarized political climate.
