President Trump has announced that he will not be paying respects to deceased Rep. John Lewis.
When asked why President Trump refused to elaborate but many in his administration feel his refusal to pay Rep. Lewis last respects is related to paying. The President feels paying anyone a debt that is perceived to be owed is a sign of a weak businessman.
The President also feels that since no one has come to see him in an even nicer place like the White House why should he go to the Capitol building. He was overheard to say “It will be over my dead body before any Democrat comes to see me.”
Nancy Pelosi disagrees saying “I and the majority of America looks forward to seeing our President in the Capitol Building”.
