Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., said she will not be intimidated after two suspicious packages addressed to her were found in Maryland and Los Angeles.

"I don’t know whether the bombs are real or not, but we should not crawl under the bed, close the doors, not go out, be afraid to go to rallies," she told Blavity, a website for black millennials. Waters was one of several Democrats to be sent the packages that contained “potential explosive devices.”
"We have to keep to doing what we’re doing in order to make this country right; that’s what I intend to do, and as the young people say, 'I ain’t scared,'" she said.
Waters blamed President Trump for the bomb scare and demanded Trump “take responsibility for the kind of violence that we are seeing for the first time in different ways.”
“I think they are acting in a way that they think the president wants them to do and the way he wants them to act,” Waters said of Trump supporters.
Trump “in his own way really does promote a lot of violence,” she added.
A postal facility in Los Angeles was evacuated Wednesday after a suspicious package addressed to Waters was discovered. Another was intercepted at a Maryland mail screening facility.
