The President-elect Donald Trump called out John Lewis adding that he was all talk and no action.

Trump is less concerned by their absence as he pointed out that they should return their tickets. The Hill’s whip list reported that a huge number of Democrats intend to break with tradition by skipping Trump’s inauguration.
Trump slammed Lewis after he claimed that he had never boycotted an inauguration despite doing so during former President George W. Bush’s in 2001. Trump mocked Lewis adding that he conveniently doesn’t remember.
Trump also emphasized that he dislikes tweeting and that he uses Twitter as a defense against the media. Adding that he gets very dishonest media and press and the only way for him to counteract is through twitter. Trump is always able to call out misstatements that are made about him.
