On Monday, President Trump responded to Maxine Waters after she called for the public harassment of officials from his administration.
“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!”, Trump tweeted.
Waters was under fire from fellow liberals after she suddenly called for the public harassment of senior Trump aides, with top Democrats distancing themselves from the dangerous rhetoric.
Just hours after House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi slammed her “unacceptable” comments, senior Barack Obama advisor David Axelrod blasted Waters’ rhetoric; saying he “couldn’t disagree more with Maxine Waters.”
Couldn’t disagree more with @MaxineWaters. Disgusted with this admin’s policies? Organize, donate, volunteer, VOTE! Rousting Cabinet members from restaurants is an empty and, ultimately, counter-productive gesture that won’t change a thing.

Outspoken conservative actor James Woods also responded. Woods warned Republicans to prepare for potential violence and urged them to “a) get armed, and b) vote” because “[y]our life literally depends on it” in an early Monday tweet.
“Now that a United States Congresswoman has called for harassment against Republicans and the inevitable violence that will come of it, I urge all of you to a) get armed, and b) vote. Your life literally depends on it,” Woods tweeted.

And his Republican followers responded:
Agree 110%! Born and raised in Utah and as far as being armed we're very proficient with taking care of ourselves. Love your point of view Mr Woods!

Democrats are crazy if they think they can beat us with sticks and stones while we are locked and loaded

The left is insane. It gets worse everyday. Senators got shot at. Maxine Waters is inciting violence against Trump administration. Celebs threaten his life and his children. The DHS secretary is accosted at dinner. ANTIFA attacks vets in wheel chairs.
This kind of behavior is pushing this country closer and closer to another civil war. If this doesn’t wake up democrat citizens to stand up for our country, then we may have to overtake them.
