N.Y. Congressman Argues Dems Should be in Trump's Face at Inauguration
Jan 18 2017 by Larry Hoffman
Carson said it wasn't enough to commemorate King, that people need to put that energy into voting. "That is how he accomplished & won Civil Rights".
Trump called Lewis "all talk" and "no action" after Lewis said he did not view Trump as a "legitimate president".
Trump's criticism came after Lewis's Friday promise not to attend the inauguration.
Mr. Trump tweeted that Mr. Lewis (Democrat-Georgia) "should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in disgusting shape and falling apart [not to mention crime infested] rather than falsely complaining about the election results".
He added: 'You can not be at home with something that you feel that is wrong'.
The Massachusetts Democrat defended her fellow Democrat from Georgia, a key figure in the civil rights movement who marched with Martin Luther King Jr. and suffered assaults like King during their nonviolent protests.
"For me, the personal decision not to attend Inauguration is quite simple: Do I stand with Donald Trump, or do I stand with John Lewis?".
Trump added that it's fine if other congressmen don't want to attend because "we need seats so badly".
Trump later tweeted: "Congressman John Lewis should finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities of the U.S".
She told American Thinker that she's been praying for Trump and his adversaries to unite and work together.
Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said on Twitter Monday morning that the meeting with King III was meant to discuss his late father's legacy.
The comments on Twitter came hours after Brennan, in an interview on "Fox News Sunday", called the Republican's recent remarks about the US intelligence community "outrageous", and suggested that Trump's overtures to improve relations with Russian Federation are naive. Russian Federation has also been accused of hacking the United States election in an effort to secure a Trump presidency.
