It was just a matter of time until Donald Trump released a very acid comment regarding John Lewis, after the Democratic Congressman and Civil Rights Leader claimed that he’s not a “legitimate president”, also adding that he doesn’t plan to attend the inauguration.
According to Financial Times, the president-elect sent a tweet on Sunday morning, accusing the Congressman of not focusing enough on his district.
Classic Trump: a very aggressive tweet
“Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to . . . mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results,” Trump said. “All talk, talk, talk — no action or results. Sad!”
John Lewis made the declarations in an interview for Meet the Press, released on Friday, and was asked to talk about how he’s planning to work with Donald Trump, after he occupies the Oval Office.
“I believe in forgiveness. I believe in trying to work with people, but it’s going to be hard. It’s going to be very difficult,” he said.
Way more democrats could be skipping the inauguration
Like expected, the Congressman also talked about the recent rumors, regarding the involvement of Russian hackers in the general elections. He claimed that he believes that Donald Trump wouldn’t have been elected if it weren’t for their help, as this helped destroy Hillary Clinton’s candidacy.
John Lewis is just one of the nine Democratic representatives to Congress who said that will skip out on January 20, but this number could significantly grow after Donald Trump’s reply from this morning.
