Maxine Waters: Border ‘Chaos’ a ‘Political Ploy’ by Trump

Sunday on CNN’s Newsroom, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called the ongoing border crisis a “political ploy” by President Trump.

“Well, I am very saddened to see this situation with desperate people and all of this has being the political ploy of the president of the United States of America,” Waters said.

“He made this the central part of his platform, that he was going to do something about these migrants who were coming here,” she continued. “He called them killers and rapists, and he certainly did stoke a lot of fear about these migrants who are trying to get in, and so he promised the American people he was going to make Mexico pay for it all, that we would not have to pay a dime for it and now we have this chaos. That’s what he wants. He wants to stoke fear.”
