WATCH: Jerry Nadler Says Trump is Not ‘Legitimate’

Congressman Jerry Nadler told CNN this morning that he agreed with his colleague John Lewis that Donald Trump is not a “legitimate” president.

“The president-elect, though legally elected, is not legitimate,” Nadler said on CNN’s “New Day.”

Nadler represents the most heavily Jewish district in the United States Congress. His comments came on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday, days after Trump attacked Lewis, a civil rights icon, for calling his presidency illegitimate.

Nadler said that he, like a growing list of Democrats, would not attend Trump’s inauguration on Friday.
