Maine Gov. Paul LePage says U.S. Rep. John Lewis needs a history lesson and should be grateful for what Republican presidents have done for black people.
The Republican governor on Tuesday addressed Lewis' criticism that GOP President-elect Donald Trump is not a "legitimate president." LePage, who's white, said on WVOM-FM that the black Democratic Georgia congressman needs a lesson on how Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves and how Ulysses S. Grant and Rutherford B. Hayes fought against Jim Crow laws.
LePage says, "A simple thank you should suffice."
