Trump attacked Lewis on Twitter over the weekend for saying he is not a “legitimate president.”

"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!” Trump wrote in a series of tweets.

The civil rights leader is among a growing list of Democrats who are boycotting Trump’s inauguration on Friday.
