President Trump slammed Rep. Maxine Waters on Monday afternoon, after her speech calling for supporters to heckle members of the Trump administration went viral over the weekend.

Mr. Trump and Ms. Waters have crossed each other several times. The president has called Ms. Waters “a low IQ individual” at a rally for Rick Saccone in March 2018, and she has repeatedly called for his impeachment.

Ms. Waters told her supporters to “push out” members of the Trump administration from public spaces.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Ms. Waters said Saturday during a rally in Los Angeles.



Fellow California lawmakers House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have both denounced Ms. Waters’ statement.
