Rep. Maxine Waters made a promise to those attending a Selma, Alabama community meeting on Saturday. She said she would “take care” of Ben Carson if Democrats take back the House in the 2018 midterm elections.
“Let me tell you this,” Waters said to the room after making an endorsement of a reparations bill that was initially sponsored by former Michigan Rep. John Conyers.
“In order to get where we need to go on this issue and on other issues, we’ve really got to understand that 2018 is important to taking back the House and taking back the Senate.”
“We’ve got to get the White House back,” Waters continued. “If we want to get to the point where we can get reparations, we’ve got to have the power to do that, number one, by having a supportive president would be wonderful, but taking back the House would be absolutely wonderful.”
When the California Democrat closed the meeting, she reminded her audience that she is “the ranking member of the financial services committee that oversees Wall Street and HUD, and by the way, we’re going to take care of Ben Carson too.”
