Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who has long called for Trump’s removal from office, said at the TIME 100 Gala Tuesday night that she wants him to resign.
Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., called on President Trump to "please resign" at the TIME 100 Gala on Tuesday night, so that she "won’t have to keep up this fight of your having to be impeached."
Waters was prompted by a questioner who asked her if she had some advice for Trump.
"I don’t think you deserve to be there," Waters said, referring to the president. "Just get out.”
The annual event in New York assembles celebrities and prominent figures to celebrate the world’s 100 most influential people according to TIME.
In the 2018 TIME 100, Waters was named as one such influencer. Actor Yara Shahidi praised Waters as "so eloquent in letting the world, particularly the white men of Congress who dare test her acumen, know that she is not here for any nonsense."
