Donald Trump just tweeted out a Matin Luther King Jr. Day salute just days after insulting Rep. John Lewis, saying that he was “all talk and no action.”
Congressman Lewis was an activist. Back in 1965 he marched alongside Martin Luther Kings Jr. and was nearly killed when a state trooper in Selma, Alabama beat him and fractured his skull.
Lewis also tweeted out his respects to Martin Luther King Jr. Calling him his friend, mentor, and most of all his brother.
Donald Trump had tweeted last week that, “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,” he said. “All talk, talk, talk – no action or results. Sad!”
Now, after saying that a man who fought for civil rights is all talk and no action Trump is calling Americans to celebrate MLK Day.
Of course, Twitter didn’t let Trump off the hook that easily:
Sean Spicer also said that Trump will be having a meeting with Martin Luther King III.
Lewis, and more than 20 other Democratic lawmakers, will not be attending Trump’s inauguration on Friday. “You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong,” he said in an interview with NBC News.
