Trump Gives Opponents Stern Warning About Their ‘Dangerous’ Language and Ideas: ‘Take It Easy’

During an interview with Fox’s Maria Bartiromo on Sunday, President Donald Trump told Democrats to be careful with what they say given the intense support he received from his base.

“I hope the other side realizes that they better just take it easy, they better just take it easy,” he said, adding that he thought some of the other sides’ “ideas” and “language” were “very dangerous for the country.”

Before making those comments, Trump suggested his base’s enthusiasm was unprecedented, saying, “There’s probably never been a base — in the history of politics in this country — like my base.”

Watch:

Trump says he will “mention” election meddling during upcoming summit w/Putin, but then immediately pivots to Hillary’s emails.

Bartiromo had asked Trump about “vitriol” from people like actor Robert De Niro towards his administration.

“Some of them do it for publicity,” the president said before addressing the Virginia restaurant that asked his press secretary to leave. “Now the Hen restaurant, I thought it was terrible with Sarah.”

He was referring to how the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia asked Sanders to leave due to her support for Trump’s policies. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen similarly faced public backlash amid controversy surrounding family separation at the border.

While some called for civility in the wake of Sanders and Nielsen’s incidents, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) encouraged people to continue harassing members of Trump’s administration.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters said last week.

In response, Trump blasted her as an “extraordinarily low IQ person” who should be careful about threatening his supporters:

Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!

As IJR previously noted, however, Trump appeared to mislabel Waters’ words, saying she directed them to his supporters rather than his administration officials.
