President Donald Trump hit back at his predecessor's eulogy at the funeral of the late Rep. John Lewis, calling it "terrible" and "angry."
Trump appeared on "Fox and Friends" Wednesday morning and was asked about former President Barack Obama's speech that some have said was too political.
"I thought it was a terrible speech. It was an angry speech. It showed this anger there that people don't see," Trump said.
"He lost control. He's been really hit very hard by both sides for that speech. That speech was ridiculous."
Trump added that the speech was "totally inappropriate."
Lewis died at the age of 80 on July 17 after a battle with cancer. He then became the first Black lawmaker to lie in state in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.
During Lewis' funeral on July 30, Obama argued that voting rights are under threat because of the current political state of affairs.
