“Low life Trump — lying, crooked, tax evader, porn star fornicator — should take his ridiculous self home, resign, and free us of what we will have to do to impeach him and throw him out of office!” Waters wrote on Twitter.


Waters is a frequent Trump critic who has called for his impeachment multiple times since he came to office.

The sharp criticism from the chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee came after Trump lashed out at former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenDonald Trump Jr. to self-publish book 'Liberal Privilege' before GOP convention Tom Price: Here's how we can obtain more affordable care The Memo: Democrats feel rising tide in Florida MORE while on foreign soil.

While in Japan, Trump repeatedly criticized Biden on Twitter and during a press conference alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Water called the president an “embarrassing unAmerican traitor.”

“How dare he denounce and belittle VP Biden on foreign soil on Memorial Day! How can these spineless Republicans look their spouses and children in the face and claim to teach them patriotism?” the California Democrat asked.

She also knocked the president for highlighting his agreement with Kim, calling him a “murderous dictator.”

“America's disgraceful president is totally out of control! He is now supporting murderous dictator Kim Jong Un who is testing ballistic missiles and threatening the United States. Does Trump's desire to be a dictator supercede the security of his own country?”

Biden's office waited for Trump to land in the United States before issuing the statement slamming Trump for his remarks. 

"To be on foreign soil, on Memorial Day, and to side repeatedly with a murderous dictator against a fellow American and former Vice President speaks for itself," deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said in a statement. "And it’s part of a pattern of embracing autocrats at the expense of our institutions — whether taking Putin’s word at face value in Helsinki or exchanging ‘love letters’ with Kim Jong Un.”
