Vanden Heuvel: John Lewis Has Done More in Selma than Trump Will Ever Do To Make America Great Again

‘Donald Trump is a bully who thrives on division’

VANDEN HEUVEL: "Donald Trump is a bully who thrives on division. Martin Luther King weekend he takes on John Lewis? John Lewis did more in one day on The Edmund Pettus Bridge than Donald Trump ever will do to make America great again. And anyone who has — I don’t want to call it audacity, it’s too good a term, to appoint Jefferson Beauregard Sessions as attorney general should damn well be respectful of John Lewis. I’m surprised John Lewis didn’t invoke the suppression of voting rights in this election. I still think it’s one of the most underreported stories. Moving forward, we’re already seeing in the last three weeks, Republican governors trying to suppress the vote. And that— contributed to the outcome."
