Maxine Waters shockingly claims Trump is ‘talking about killing young children’ by calling on military to stop protests

REP Maxine Waters has shockingly claimed that President Donald Trump is "talking about killing young children" by calling on the military to stop George Floyd protests.

The Democratic California representative, who is known for frequently criticizing Trump, formally endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden while speaking with Cheddar Live on Tuesday.

During the interview, Waters stressed the importance of Biden being elected as she insisted the current president is “destroying America.”

Reporter Brad Smith questioned Waters on what she expects of "the escalation of national issues and the responses of both candidates to voters."

Waters responded with criticism towards Trump, saying: "I know there have been some concerns about Biden, but I see a growing understanding that he must be elected. He must be elected because this president is destroying America.

"Not only is he goading confrontation, this business of calling out the military, now he’s not only talking about killing black people, he’s talking about killing young white children."

Trump is considering deploying tanks to the streets of America in the wake of escalating violence across the country.

An anonymous White House official has said Trump wanted to get tough in the city as a warning to the rest of the country.

Two Pentagon officials also told AP on Wednesday he ordered military aircraft to fly above the capital on Monday night as a "show of force" against demonstrators.

Waters added: "I do not believe that whether you’re a Republican, or you are an independent, that you’re going to stand for your white daughter, your white son, to be killed by the military because this president is using it as a campaign tool."

In the past, Waters has tweeted more than once calling for Trump's impeachment and called him a "low life."

Trump mocked the congresswoman as "crazy" and having "an extraordinary low IQ" in 2018.

She told TMZ she thinks the Minneapolis Officer Derek Chauvin, who was filmed with his neck on Floyd’s knee, “enjoyed doing it.”

Last Wednesday, Trump called the death "very sad and tragic."

After Floyd's death, Waters said: “My first thought was, ‘Not again. Not one more killing.’”

“I’m reflecting on all of the killings of young black men in particular, but of course black women too, at the hands of the police and at the hands of these white supremacists.”

“And I’m thinking about the way that the president conducts himself — in a way he’s dog-whistling — and I think that they’re feeling that they can get away with this kind of treatment.”

Floyd, 46, died last week after former Minneapolis Police Officer Chauvin, 44, held his knee on the man’s neck for nearly nine minutes while arresting him.

Chauvin on Friday was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in Floyd's death.

He has been transferred to a maximum-security prison for inmates after it was reported he was "effectively on suicide watch."

Meanwhile, Trump on Wednesday said he didn't order those protesting George Floyd's death to be moved from outside the White House as he walked to St John’s Episcopal Church on Monday.

Law enforcement officers aggressively forced the protesters back, fired tear gas, and deploying flash bangs into the crowd to disperse them from the park for seemingly no reason.
