Maxine Waters Calls Out ‘Bully’ Trump’s Shutdown Bluff: ‘We’re Not Going to be Intimidated’

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) responded to President Donald Trump‘s threat to shut down the government by calling him out on his bluff.

On Sunday morning, Trump tweeted out this: “I would be willing to ‘shut down’ government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!”

Asked to respond to the tweet on MSNBC, Waters made it clear on Sunday afternoon that she doesn’t think his intimidation will not work.

“You know, this president is a bully and he will try to intimidate all of us,” Waters told MSNBC host David Gura. “He is not going to shut down anything. As a matter of fact, people will remember that he said he was going to build this wall and he was going to make Mexico pay for the wall. They said they weren’t going to pay for anything. Now he wants the American citizens to pay for this wall.”

She added: “We’re not going to be intimidated by his bluffing and his bullying.”
