Asked how history will remember John Lewis, Trump tells @jonathanvswan: “I don’t know...I really don’t know John Lewis. He chose not to come to our inauguration.” Asked if he found Lewis impressive, Trump says: “I can’t say one way or the other..He didn’t come to my inauguration”
Pressed further about whether he found John Lewis’ story impressive and what he’s done for the US, Trump says: “He was a person who devoted a lot of energy and a lot of heart to civil rights. But there were many others also.”
Earlier in the interview, Trump defends wishing Ghislaine Maxwell well, despite her arrest last month on sex trafficking charges. “I do wish her well, and I’m not looking for anything bad for her,” Trump says
