Maxine Waters: ‘Melania Can’t Trust Trump’


President Trump is increasingly crossing party lines to work with Democrats on key legislation. Trump met this week with Democratic congressional leaders Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) for dinner at the White House where they discussed possible protections for participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and border security actions.

Democrat Representative Maxine Waters has never been shy about her dislike of President Donald Trump, and on Friday her attacks turned personal: The veteran California congresswoman tweeted that Trump’s wife, Melania, was among those who could not trust the 45th president of the United States.The new attack from Waters, who in the past has called for Trump to be impeached, follows the president’s efforts to reach out to Democrats, much to the displeasure of some Republicans.

“Democrats can’t trust Trump, Republicans can’t trust Trump, and Melania can’t trust Trump,” she tweeted Friday. Waters did not elaborate on her comment about Melania, but it is possible she was alluding to allegations over the years that Donald Trump has had multiple extramarital affairs.

She also took aim at Attorney General Jeff Sessions following a report that he had been left humiliated by Trump after Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel to oversee the investigation into possible collusion with Russia.
