T.I. Defends Congressman John Lewis and Atlanta Against Donald Trump Diss
"Congressman John Lewis should finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities of the U.S.," tweeted the President-Elect, after Lewis said he wouldn't attend the upcoming inauguration.
Tip, like many other people, was offended by Trump's tweets and responded by captioning on a video of Atlanta Mayor Kasim sticking up for Congressman Lewis. The Mayor also asked the soon-to-be President why he had a problem with the city of Atlanta.
"Well Kasim, Maybe it's our predominantly black government or our thriving community of self-sufficient black athletes, rappers, producers, actors, DJs, directors, celebrities, executives, real estate developers and entrepreneurs, who've worked their way to multi-millionaire legendary status in spite of the narrow minded oppressive thoughts of our neighbors only 45 minutes, an hour a way," answered T.I.
