Rep. John Lewis Saturday cited the rift with President-elect Donald Trump in a letter to raise money for the Democratic National Committee, calling on supporters to help "stand up to injustice."
The letter was included in a tweet posted by Time magazine political reporter Zeke Miller:
"Today Donald Trump attacked me on Twitter," the civil rights icon and longtime Georgia congressman began. "He said that I’m 'all talk' and 'no action.'
"I’ve been beaten, bloody, tear-gassed, fighting for what’s right for America," Lewis said. "I’ve marched at Selma with Dr. [Martin Luther] King.
"Sometimes that's what it takes to move our country in the right direction.
"We refuse to stop now," Lewis continued. "We’re not done fighting for progress.
"We’re ready for the next four years," he added. "Join me and chip in whatever you can today to help Democrats stand up to injustice."
