King III said Trump was wrong to describe Lewis,
and a civil rights icon in his own right,
"No, absolutely I would say John Lewis has demonstrated with his actions. As I said, things get said on both sides in the heat of emotion," he said. "And at some point in this nation we've got to move forward."
He said he told Trump that his father would be infuriated that tens of millions of people are still living in poverty.
"It's insanity that we have poor people in this nation," he said. "That's unacceptable."
