California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters has told the media that her weekend appearance in New Hampshire isn’t related in any way to her potential run for president in 2020. That said, she also stated that if millennials wanted her to run, she’d consider it.

“I’m just going up to do a county Democratic thing. That’s all,” she said.

“I’m not running for anything but my own seat. I don’t have any presidential aspirations. If the millennials want me to do it, I’d do it, though.”

Waters is in her 14th term representing south central LA and has become known for calling for Trump’s impeachment.

“Mr. Speaker, my position against this president and his administration is clear. I oppose this president. I do not honor this president. I do not respect this president,” Waters said in a floor speech earlier this year.
