Sheriff Arpaio was in California on Thursday to help “see that President Trump wins a second term and we elect Omar Navarro to Congress.” Republican Omar Navarro is set to take on incumbant Rep. Maxine Waters in the 2018 election. The campaign fundraiser was held at Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes.
During his speech, Arpaio discussed how he felt about Maxine Waters and according to Daily News, he started out by stating:
“I don’t know her, but I don’t like her. If you can’t beat her, Omar, there’s something wrong. What’s wrong with California? Is it the water? Something’s wrong with California.”
Then Arpaio was met by a standing ovation when he made the following prediction:
“I predicted (in 2015 that Trump) would be the next president, so I guess I’m good at predicting. I’m predicting Omar will win this election,”
According to Daily News, 28-year-old online marketer Navarro lost his first run against 14-term Waters by a very large margin back in 2016 but has high hopes he will have better fortune this time around due to increased fundraising and protests related to the National Anthem and flag.
Navarro sides with Donald Trump on many issues, including illegal immigration and the recent pardoning of Sheriff Arpaio. He wants to educate Latinos on why illegal immigration is bad for America and that it is not a racist concept.
Navarro made the following comment about illegal immigration:
“It’s not racism. It’s not discrimination. It’s obeying the laws of our country.”
Running against Maxine Waters will be quite the battle, as she has a big following in the 43rd district, but her recent behavior and delusion has been considered very distasteful by critics. And many suspect such negative attention she has drawn will come back to bite her in 2018. We shall see…
