Trump slammed for ignoring death of John Lewis and heading out to golf with Lindsey Graham
President Donald Trump

According to CNN's Shimon Prokupecz, Donald Trump skipped tweeting any comments about the passing of civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis on Saturday morning, saying the president "arrived at his golf club in Sterling, VA at 9:09am."


Prokupecz tweeted, "President Trump arrived at his golf club in Sterling, VA at 9:09am, according to pool reports. Neither the President nor the White House has issued a statement or responded to request for comment on the passing of John Lewis."

Since that time the White House has issued an official statement, but the president, known for his Saturday morning Twitter postings, skipped saying a word about the revered Democratic lawmaker who passed away late Friday night.

CBS News also reported that the president was accompanied by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
