Maxine Waters: 'The Door Is Closed' For Trump, ‘It’s Over’
'There’s nowhere for him to go,' California Democrat claims
Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) boasted that President Donald Trump's presidency is now "over" and the "door was closed" during an interview on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut."
Waters accused Trump of trying to make people believe he won the election amid growing allegations of voter fraud across the country.
“Of course, this president has disappointed us in every turn," Waters said.
"I wish I could say I’m surprised at what he’s doing.
"This way that he is trying to make people believe that somehow he actually won the election, that the Democrats have all been a fraud, not counting the votes properly on and on."
"I’m not surprised. I have known that this was a man with no good values," Waters added.
"This was a human being who really doesn’t care about others and really doesn’t care about the Constitution, democracy, none of that," she continued.
"He has shown it throughout this four years,” she continued.
“So let him keep going as far as he wants to go even though the door is closed on him now."
"There’s nowhere for him to go. If he wants to try and keep going to the Supreme Court, let him try," Waters said.
"It’s over. Now, we have a president-elect and vice president who will take this country in another direction and create the change and appreciation for diversity and talent that will help the democracy to be stronger," she added.
"I’m looking forward to inauguration.”
Earlier this month, Poltico reported Waters had vowed to reverse the easing of financial rules that have taken place under Trump, calling the election of Joe Biden "the dawn of a new progressive America."
Waters slammed the OCC's "harmful" revisions to anti-redlining rules under the Community Reinvestment Act, the landmark 1977 law that was designed to prevent discrimination in lending.
She also cited looser procedures by Trump appointees to risky trading restrictions under the so-called Volcker Rule as well as capital requirements for the largest banks.
"I'm putting our witnesses on notice that I will be working with the Biden administration to roll back these rules," she said.
