Maxine Waters Delivers Sick Burn About Trump's China Policy Shift

She is everything. 🔥

We’ve known for a long time that Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) is full of moxie, but, if this is any indication, the 78-year-old has no intention of stopping her parade of badassery.

In an interview with Yahoo News’ Bianna Golodryga, Waters was asked for her reaction to President Donald Trump’s tax plan

“We don’t know what it means... It does not have any specificity. It does not have any details,” she said. “We don’t know what he’s talking about. And don’t forget: you can’t trust this president. When he comes out with one thing, he’ll change the next day.”

Waters cited Trump’s flip-flopping about NAFTA and his position on China as examples. She said that Trump initially called China “currency manipulators” and then delivered a fantastic burn:

“He had chocolate cake with President Xi and, all of the sudden, they are not currency manipulators.”

Waters is referring to Trump having a staunch stance about Chinese currency manipulation during his campaign, which he changed right after meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping... when they ate, according to Trump IS THAT CORRECT?, the “most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you’ve ever seen."

As R. Eric Thomas said in Elle RECENTLY? about her, Rep. Waters is “fresh out of mercy” and “trying to single-handedly strap this country to her back and carry it to safety.” We can only hope she keeps on keepin’ on with burns like these.
