On Sunday, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters said that former President Donald Trump was “the worst threat to our democracy” that “anyone” has ever known.

Waters made her remarks during an interview on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show.”

Waters on Trump: ‘This man has no respect for this democracy, and he supports those who basically invaded our Capitol’

After host Jonathan Capehart read a recent statement from Trump, Waters said, “The former president is the worst threat to our democracy that I have ever known, and perhaps anyone has ever known.”

“Despite the fact that we’re on the other side of the issues and the aisles, Democrats, and Republicans,” she said. “We’ve never seen anything like this.”

Waters elaborated on her feelings about Trump and what she believes it means for the country.

“This man has no respect for this democracy, and he supports those who basically invaded our Capitol,” Waters claimed. “He supports those who threatened his own vice president, Mr. Pence, and he continues to go along this separation line.”

“He has destroyed patriotism,” Waters said.

She continued, “Those who are in his circle who are afraid of him need to be ashamed of themselves in the way they’re trying to dismiss the law and not being compliant and continue the big lie about this campaign that they have had that said that somehow the presidency was taken from him.”

Waters then explained why she sees Trump as a threat.

“We are watching the greatest threat to our democracy right now in the way this president is handling himself and his inner circle who are all trying to defy the law,” Waters said.

“We are not going to give up,” Waters vowed. “We are going after him.”

“The American people deserve to have better than this past president,” Waters finished.
