trump believes he has done the most for black americans
We all know that Trump has an ego that is always starving for attention.
We all know that President Trump can't fathom the idea that people do not like him and if they don't they are not worthy of him.
We would usually let that be but he has gone to far by insulting the late civil rights pioneer John Lewis in a recent interview. They weren't friends and they didn't agree on many issues but it would have been better to stay quiet about the man. Instead he used his name to claim that he has done more for "Black Americans" than any one else.
Last night Donald Trump did an exclusive interview with Axios where reporter Jonathan Swan gave him many questions to address the legacy of John Lewis. Trump of course dodged the questions while making John Lewis's life all about him. Here are some of the answers he gave:

Swan: "Do you find John Lewis impressive?"
Trump: " can't say one way or the other, but, no, he didn't come to my inauguration. He didn't come to my SOTU speeches, okay? And again, nobody has done more for Black Americans than I have. pic.twitter.com/zWihezItEo

Its that extreme white privilege speaking if you even think you as a white man did more for black Americans than the Civil rights leaders who got killed, hurt and much more simply just because they asked and fought for equal rights.— Stark (@StarkJeweIs) August 4, 2020

Trump saying “Nobody has done more for Black Americans than I have” in reference to John Lewis and then saying he should have come to his inauguration is peak angry slaveowner mentality.— Andreas Hale (@AndreasHale) August 4, 2020
