Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California said she has no ‶respect″ for President Donald Trump.

‶I don’t honor him,″ Waters said during an interview with MSNBC. ‶I don’t respect this president. I don’t think that he deserves to be president of this great country. I am very concerned about him and I really think he’s dangerous. This is abnormal what we’re experiencing with this president.″

Waters demanded that Trump release his tax returns and said she believes disclosure of those returns would lead to impeachment.

‶Show the people your taxes,″ Waters said, describing Trump as a ‶liar″ for not releasing his returns and blaming an IRS audit for his reluctance to do so.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

‶Stop stonewalling, stop hiding,″ Waters said.

‶I will fight every day until he is impeached,″ she added. ‶I believe that if we have the credible investigations that it will lead to his impeachment.″

Waters spoke to a crowd during a so-called ‶Tax March,″ in which Democrat voters marched to demand the releases of Trump's tax returns.

According to CNN, Waters led a chant of ‶Impeach 45″ in the middle of a speech denouncing Trump and demanding his tax returns.

And although she has called for Trump's impeachment several times, she denied doing so in an April 17 interview with MSNBC.

‶Here's what I've said. I've said that we need the information. We need to connect the dots. We need the facts in order to do the impeachment,″ she said, according to Politifact. ‶And I'm going to work every day to try and help get those facts and to reveal them to the republic, to our public until, of course, impeachment is taking place."

Waters, 78, has been one of Trump's fiercest critics in a long line of Democratic partisans who regularly assail the president.

Her Twitter account regularly lambasts Trump with allegations that he is working with the Russian government to ‶undermine″ U.S. democracy and profit off of the White House.

‶Trump will not release his taxes b/c he has something to hide. He's only out to enrich himself, his wealthy cabinet, & White House swamp,″ she tweeted on April 18. ‶It can't be lost in the chaos that Trump's campaign is still under FBI investigation for colluding w/ Russians to undermine our democracy.″

She added: ‶Nothing in the past two weeks has changed anything about what we've learned about [former campaign advisers Paul Manafort and Carter Page] & the rest of Trump's #KremlinKlan.″
