Elizabeth Warren Defends John Lewis After Trump Attacked Him On Twitter

Donald Trump attacked Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) last week after Lewis questioned the legitimacy of the election. Trump stated in a tweet that Lewis is “all talk and no action.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) had something to say about that. She defended Lewis on Monday while answering questions from a crowd of reporters following the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Breakfast in Boston, Warren said that Trump “stepped over a line” when he attacked Lewis over the weekend on Twitter, saying the civil rights icon is “All talk, talk, talk – no action or results.”

Warren went on to say “John Lewis is a man who literally put his life on the line to make this a better country, a fairer country, a country that is more open. Donald Trump hasn’t put his life on the line for anyone except Donald Trump.”

Lewis fought for civil rights and even put his life on the line for what he believed in, for making this country great. In 1965, he rose to prominence after he was savagely beaten by police as he crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, a bridge named after a white supremacist, during a peaceful voting rights march he was leading.

In 2010, Lewis was awarded the presidential Medal of Freedom for his lifelong commitment to civil rights work.

“John Lewis has earned the right to raise questions about legitimacy,” Warren said. “John Lewis has a question about that and John Lewis wants not to attend because of that ― that is certainly his right.”
