John Lewis Wouldn’t Invite Trump To Visit Selma With Him

Key Points: John Lewis, Meet The Press, President-elect Donald Trump, Bloody Sunday, and work

In 1965, Lewis, a civil rights icon whose work led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act of that year, was badly beaten on Edmund Pettus Bridge during Bloody Sunday.

Here’s a picture of John Lewis being beaten by a state trooper on “Bloody Sunday” in 1965. Matt Fuller (@MEPFuller) January 14, 2017 Lewis told “Meet The Press” host Chuck Todd that it would be “almost impossible” for him to work with Trump since he does not see the president-elect’s win as legitimate.

Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) has made it very clear that he is not a fan of President-elect Donald Trump ― so much so that he wouldn’t even invite Trump to visit Selma, Alabama, with him.
