Donald Trump posted a series of tweets Saturday in response to recent comments by Rep. John Lewis questioning Trump's legitimacy. During an interview with NBC News' 'Meet the Press,' civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) commented that he does not consider Donald Trump a "legitimate president." Lewis said, "I don't see this president-elect as a legitimate president...I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton." Reacting to his comments, Trump tweeted Saturday, "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. All talk, talk, talk - no action or results. Sad!" In the interview, Lewis also said, "I don't plan to attend the inauguration. It will be the first one that I miss since I've been in Congress. You cannot be at home with something that you feel is wrong."
