Trump “Saddened” About Death Of Rep. John Lewis

USA Today reports:

The short and understated sentiment made no mention of the animosity that developed between the two men early that developed when Lewis questioned the legitimacy of Trump’s 2016 election victory and the president attacked Lewis’ district. Trump, however, was far less loquacious in his tweet than many of his senior aides.

Trump signed a proclamation ordering flags flown at half-staff Saturday but had not issued a statement on Lewis’ death until mid-afternoon. Four of his predecessors – Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Jimmy Carter – along with congressional leaders of both parties did so much earlier.

Trump’s tweet only came after he finished a round of golf with Lindsey Graham.
