The front page of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Sunday blasted Trump with the headline “Atlanta to Trump: Wrong,” a day after he launched a Twitter attack against civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis after the civil rights hero questioned the legitimacy of his presidency in light of reports of Russian involvement in the election.

The front-page article responds to Trump’s criticism that the longtime congressman does nothing for his district, which Trump claims is in “horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested).”
“The district that Trump described as in ‘horrible shape’ includes Emory University and Morehouse College, as well as Spelman College and Georgia Tech. The Coca-Cola headquarters is just one of that district’s many, high-profile corporate residents,” the AJC article declares.
“Lewis represents Midtown’s shiny residential high-rises and the pricey Intown neighborhoods filled with renovated homes, the Beltline and Ponce City Market.”
That PEOTUS Trump would attack Congressman Lewis on MLK Day weekend for ‘all talk … no action’ when he bled to actually ‘Make America Great’ is why far less than half the country supports him at the dawn of his presidency,” said Kasim Reed, Atlanta’s mayor.
