California congresswoman Maxine Waters has renewed her call for President Donald Trump’s impeachment during a speech at Saturday’s Tax Day rally in Washington, DC.
Waters, a Democrat, has repeatedly called for Trump’s impeachment over unfounded allegations that he has colluded with Russia and for not releasing his tax returns.
‘I don’t respect this president. I don’t trust this president. He’s not working in the best interests of the American people,’ said Waters. ‘I will fight every day until he is impeached.’

Congresswoman Maxine Waters called for Trump’s impeachment at Saturday’s Tax Rally in DC
The DC tax march was one in a number of rallies held Saturday calling for Trump to release his tax returns.
Waters called Trump a ‘liar’ for saying he can’t release his tax returns because of an audit. The IRS has maintained that individuals can release their own tax information.
His predecessors in the White House going back more than 40 years had done so.
‘Show the people your taxes. Stop stonewalling, stop hiding,’ Waters said.

This isn’t the first time the Democratic representative has criticized Trump.
Earlier this month, Waters told CNN that Trump had done a number of things to show he didn’t understand government.
‘He’s not willing to learn. He doesn’t learn from his mistakes. Instead of learning, he gets up the next morning and tweets something all over again,’ she said.

Waters argued in March that Trump should be impeached if it’s proven he colluded with Russia
The 78-year-old congresswoman has quickly become the face of opposition against the president.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Waters said she plans to boycott any meeting, event, ceremony or public event with the president – regardless of whether it was at the White House or in her home district of Los Angeles.
‘I don’t see myself meeting with him, sitting down with him, believing anything he would say or even respecting anything he would say,’ she said.
