In a tweet, Waters said Trump "thinks he knows better" than negotiators and U.S. allies — France, Germany and the United Kingdom — which issued a joint statement this week condemning Trump's decision to abandon the agreement.

"Trump, further isolating the United States, thinks he knows better than our negotiators and all of our global allies who agreed to the Iran deal," Waters tweeted. "How long do we have to suffer his gigantic ego and narcissistic behavior? Impeachment is the only answer."

House Democrats have signed on to an effort to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump, but the movement has not gained significant traction among members of Democratic leadership.

Democrats hope to regain majorities in both chambers this fall. Meanwhile, a growing number of embattled Republicans are eyeing impeachment threats to give them a potential edge in close races.

“I don’t think we should be talking about impeachment. I’ve been very clear right from the start,” Pelosi said during a press briefing in April.

“On the political side I think it’s a gift to the Republicans,” she added. “We want to talk about what they’re doing to undermine working families in our country and what we are doing to increase their payrolls and lower their costs.”
