Don't let Maxine Waters's calm look fool you, she's a woman with fiery passion for what she believes in. She's a congresswoman that has vocalized her dislike of President Trump's antics and uses her voice for good. Check out this interview Waters had with Tamron Hall that showed us her personality and stance on the then-newly elected president.
Unlike many politicians who make empty promises, Waters actually sticks to what she says. With her work as a congresswoman, she's been able to secure $10 billion in Section 108 loan guarantees to cities for infrastructure, housing and economic development.
Through her work, she has also created the Center for Women Veterans. It is a distinction within the the Department of Veterans' Affairs that aims to help provide health care benefits and other necessities for women veterans.
If you think Maxine's reads on President Trump are something new, guess again. Maxine Waters has always been fighting for what's right. In this video from 2010, you can see Waters speak out on the unethical practices of Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Maxine Waters's public good doesn't just stop in the U.S. She's been able to use her work to expand U.S. debt relief for Africa and other developing nations. Waters is not only making America great again, she's making the world phenomenal!
Maxine Waters is a well-respected politician and also an auntie we wish we had! Her facial expressions are a "mood."
Waters secured $50 million dollars for Youth Fair Chance. This program focuses on intensive job and life skills training for unskilled, unemployed youth. Waters is truly committed to uplifting the youth and bettering the economy.
In 1998, Waters was a leader in the development of the Minority AIDS Initiative. It aimed to address the wide spread of HIV/AIDS among African-Americans, Hispanics and other minorities. Now the initiative's appropriation is $400 million per year!
When the president of the United States was trying to kick people out, she was stepping in. You may recall the debacle in January after the president put through an executive order to temporarily ban travelers from seven specific countries. This ban resulted in detentions for some travelers and many protests. Among these protesters was Congresswoman Maxine Waters. Mrs. Waters stood by other protesters at LAX to show her support and protect the detainees.
In case you didn't already know, Maxine Waters is a strong Black woman. She is also the perfect example of sticking up for yourself when someone is unjust. Here she is making America great again by putting rude remarks in check! After Bill O'Reily stated she had a "James Brown" wig, Maxine Waters left him with one message to remember: She is, and always will be, a strong Black woman!
