President Trump has repeatedly made his disdain for Mazine Waters (D-CA-43rd) know, but has he considered the ramifications of his constant attacks on Waters if the Democrats are able to take back the House in the 2018 midterm elections? If there is a Democratic majority, Waters is in the position to take over the House Financial Services Committee.
That spells trouble for Donald Trump as Waters has been one of his most vociferous critics well before he singled her out for repeated social media attacks.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!

As a matter of pure fact, Maxine Waters never called for “harm” to his “supporters,” but facts have never been this president’s strong suit.
A fact he might have considered before attacking her is that Waters is currently the ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee, and has already pushed for probes into Trump’s financial ties, as well as the finances of his inner circle. Perhaps most notably, she continues to request investigation into the president’s financial activity with Deutsche Bank and… Russia.
Maxine Waters has been limited in her ability to actuate these investigations, because of the current Republican majority.
Isaac Boltansky, Director of Policy Research at Compass Point says, “Maxine Waters is one of the leading voices of the Democratic Party, and the tone, tenor, and tenacity of the House Financial Services Committee chairmanship is going to change next year materially [if Democrats win]. It’s been a little bit of a sleepy committee for the last few years, but that’s going to change if Rep. Waters gets the gavel.”
