After Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called for continued protests against Trump administration staffers in public spaces, President Donald Trump unloaded a threatening tweet Monday, warning her to “be careful what you wish for.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in fact did not join Waters’ call for public demonstration, but tweeted a plea for civility in response to Waters’ comments.

Waters made her comments at a “Keep Family Togethers” rally in Los Angeles on Saturday.

“For these members of his Cabinet who remain and try to defend him they’re not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they’re not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they’re not going to be able to shop at a department store, the people are going to turn on them, they’re going to protest, they’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the President ‘no I can’t hang with you, this is wrong this is unconscionable and we can’t keep doing this to children,’” she said then.
