U.S. Rep. John Lewis had strong words Friday on the coming inauguration of Donald Trump as president.
On NBC’s “meet the press with chuck Todd” this Georgia democrat was asked about his plans to create a relationship with Trump :
“You know, I believe in forgiveness. I believe in trying to work with people. It will be hard. It’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president.”
Lewis, who also testified this week against U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., Trump’s nominee to be attorney general, went on to say he believes the Russians helped elect Trump and that he does not plan to attend next week’s inauguration.
Lewis is not the only democrat with a plan to boycott Trump’s inauural.
AJC reports that Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz are among those who will not attend.
