Trump suggested Saturday that he and Lewis work together to focus on the nation's inner cities after a number of Democratic and Republican lawmakers slammed him for saying Lewis was "all talk" and "no action."
The president-elect had fired back at Lewis in tweets early Saturday after the Democratic lawmaker said he didn't view Trump as a "legitimate president" and would skip his inauguration.
"John Lewis and his 'talk' have changed the world," Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) tweeted Saturday, joining other lawmakers criticizing Trump's comments and pointing to Lewis's history in the civil rights movement.
