Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th president on Friday in Washington. He opened the week by calling out Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) and Lewis’ Atlanta district on Twitter, and telling the Washington Post that his goal for an Obamacare replacement is “insurance for everyone” and a fight with drug companies.
