Rep. Keith Ellison: I'm not going to Trump's Inauguration

In a 2013 interview about the first volume of March for Entertainment Weekly, Lewis said: "When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to do something about it". "Sad!" He altered his rhetoric a bit later that day, presumably after learning about the affluence of Lewis' district, but still doubled down nevertheless on the issue.

Warren was directly asked if she shared Lewis's views that Trump wasn't "a legitimate president", in part because he believed Russian interference helped Trump defeat Hillary Clinton.

As we roll into the final days before the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump on Friday, a number of Democratic lawmakers have announced that they intend to boycott the ceremony, including Rep. Al Green.

The news gained Lewis 60,000 new Twitter followers, his second biggest gain after last June when he led the sit-in for gun control.

Lee was among several House Democrats who raised objections to certifying the Electoral College vote during a joint session of Congress earlier this month. I can tell you when I was at the inaugurations and you don't forget something like that.

The interview was conducted as the future president was preparing to take over the White House on January 20 after his electoral victory despite having almost three million votes less than his opponent, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

"John Lewis is one of the most respected members of Congress", said Representative Bob Brady.

"I am deeply disappointed in the way President-elect Trump attacked Rep. John Lewis, a personal friend and hero to so many Americans", Capuano said, in a statement provided by the spokeswoman. "His absence at that time was also a form of dissent".

Evans attended the Martin Luther King Jr. Why should we be more accepting of the outcomes of the elections that put them in power than they are of the election that is giving power to Trump?

At least 10 other Democratic U.S. politicians have also said they plan to skip the inauguration.

"If you find yourself isolated because the process breaks down, or you're only hearing from people who agree with you, that's when you start making mistakes", he continued.

Schultz said lawmakers boycotted en masse for Abraham Lincoln's first inauguration.
