Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) had strong words for her critics during an acceptance speech on Tuesday night, warning them that “if you come for me, I’m coming for you.”

Waters, who was accepting a social humanitarian award at the Black Girls Rock! award show, said that she won’t allow “right-wing, ultra-conservative, alt-right haters” let her think she’s anything less than a “strong black woman."

She then addressed President Trump, of whom she has been a fierce critic.

“Whether it’s the president of the United States of America or any of his Cabinet, we will say to them, ‘We will resist you,’” she said. “We will not allow you to damage this country in the way that you’re doing.”

“We will not allow you to take us backwards. Not only will we resist you, we will impeach you, Mr. President!” Waters said.

Waters, a frequent critic of Trump, has repeatedly called for his impeachment.

She most recently hit Trump over his comments on Charlottesville, Va., saying that he is to blame for the violence that broke out at a white supremacist rally there earlier this month.
