Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters has become a target of protests from far-right groups, and now Waters is warning her own supporters not to make things worse.
A far-right militia group called the Oath Keepers is planning "weeks" of protests against Waters. On Wednesday, Waters asked supporters planning counter-protests to "not be baited into confronting the Oath Keepers", saying it would "exacerbate tensions and increase the potential for conflict".
Waters became a target after her comments that members of the Trump administration deserve to be confronted in public. President Trump has referred to Waters as a "low-IQ individual" in the past.
