After Trump Comment, John Lewis Will Skip State of the Union After Trump Comment, John Lewis Will Skip State of the Union

Vittert said on "Fox & Friends" that Georgia Congressman John Lewis and Congresswoman Maxine Waters of California announced they will join Oregon's Earl Blumenauer in skipping the traditional presidential address.

"I wish I could say he didn't have the courage of his convictions, because I don't know if he has any", Waters added before suggesting Ryan be thrown out with Trump.

"Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?"

Trump's comments, made during a private meeting with lawmakers in reference to immigrants from Haiti and some African countries, have prompted backlash from lawmakers and world leaders.

Bannon steps down from Breitbart News after drawing fire from Trump
In the book, Bannon called Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower in June 2016 "treasonous". The quotes sent Trump into a fury and a Twitter tweet storm that called Bannon "out of a job" and "out of his mind".

Lewis made the accusation following Trump's reported comments that America needs fewer Haitian immigrants and more immigrants from countries like Norway.

"I think the words and his actions tend to speak like one who knows something about being a racist", Lewis said in an MSNBC interview. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who was there at the time, said he did. "Members of Congress have a responsibility to the American people and our democracy to impeach him". "He does not deserve my attention". "It must be in his DNA, in his makeup", Lewis said.

Lewis also announced that he would be skipping the address, accusing Trump of having racist sympathies after reports on the alleged remarks surfaced Thursday.

"Hearing from Oregonians and working together to protect our values and advance policies that actually strengthen our communities is a more productive use of my time", Blumenauer said. Waters answered, "Oh no, I didn't go to the inauguration".
