Rep. John Lewis Says Racism is in Trump's 'Makeup'

Waters said on MSNBC's "All In with Chris Hayes".

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) did not hold back in her criticism of President Donald Trump for reportedly suggesting that Haiti and some African nations were "shithole countries". He name-calls. He basically disparaged a United States congresswoman and basically said that she would do anything for a contribution.

"I can not in all good conscience be in a room with what he has said about so many Americans", Lewis said on MSNBC Friday. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who was present in the meeting, maintained that the president did, in fact, use "hate-filled, vile and racist" language during the meeting - something his colleague, Sen.

Lewis, who did not attend Trump's inauguration or the first inauguration of former President George W. Bush, was asked during an appearance on what his plans are for the January 30 speech.

"I don't trust him, I don't appreciate him and I wouldn't waste my time. listening to what he has to say", she continued.

Waters is the third Democrat so far to announce a boycott of the Jan 30. event, with Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., and Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., both saying that they would be skipping it too.

Blumenauer said he will instead listen "to Oregonians about what they think about the State of the Union" in his home state.

"I can not in all good conscience be in a room with what he has said about so many Americans", Lewis said.

"Donald Trump is a racist and indecent man with no good values who is woefully unfit and undeserving of the office in which he serves".
