Maxine Waters Warns of Violence If Trump Wins in November

 June 24, 2024

Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters expressed her concerns on MSNBC's The Saturday Show about potential ramifications if Donald Trump wins the presidential election in November.

Waters highlighted what she says are the risks of violence, particularly for people of color should Trump prevail, and she discussed the possibility of more incidents similar to the Capitol unrest on Jan. 6, 2021.

Concerns Raised on MSNBC's The Saturday Show

Speaking on MSNBC, Waters (D-CA) shared her apprehensions regarding the safety of Americans if Donald Trump is elected to another term in office. Waters emphasized that her concerns extend beyond her safety to include members of Congress and the general public.

Waters believes that Trump’s rhetoric, especially his claims that any election loss would be due to fraud, could potentially incite violence. She highlighted what she says is the risk of Trump’s statements motivating individuals and groups with racist ideologies.

“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 stated.

Trump's Fraud Claims and Potential for Violence

Waters specifically mentioned Trump's assertions that a loss in the election would be fraudulent. She suggested that such claims could lead to bloodshed. “Donald Trump has said that if he does not win, it is going to be fraud, and because it is going to be fraud, there will be blood in the streets,” Waters explained.

According to Waters, Trump's supposed threats of civil war and violence could serve as a motivational force for those with racist tendencies. She noted, “He threatens about a civil war, and he threatens there’s going to be violence. 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.”

Fears for People of Color and Broader Society

Waters expressed deep concern for the safety of people of color and the broader community. She underscored the potential danger posed by individuals who might act on Trump’s threats.

“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.

Waters’ remarks reflect a broader fear among some on the left that Trump’s influence could lead to widespread violence, particularly against marginalized groups.

Recalling the Capitol Insurrection

Reflecting on the past, Waters drew what she said are parallels between Trump's current rhetoric and the demonstrations at the Capitol. She warned that similar violent events could happen again.

“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 said.

Waters emphasized that Trump should be held accountable for statements regarding potential violence. “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.

Waters' Concerns Echoed by Others on Left

The possibility of increased violence if Trump does not win the election has become a significant concern for many on the left, as highlighted by Waters' statements. The memories of the Capitol protests still linger, and the fear of similar incidents looms large for some outspoken liberals.

Waters' comments underscore what she appears to feel is the urgent need for caution and preparedness in the face of potential unrest.

In conclusion, Rep. Maxine Waters' remarks on MSNBC's The Saturday Show shed light on her serious concerns surrounding Donald Trump's potential electoral win. Waters says she fears for the safety of many Americans, especially people of color, and warns of possible violence she believes could be incited by Trump.
