Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) said he believes President Donald Trump and his administration to be a threat, not just to America but to the whole planet, during an interview with David Letterman that premiered on Netflix on Friday.

Letterman interviewed Lewis as part of his episode with former President Barack Obama, and asked Lewis how big a setback the Trump administration is to the civil rights movement.

Lewis played a key role in the American civil rights movement and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his work advancing civil rights in America.

“It is a major setback to the hopes, the dream, and aspirations of a people. Not just African-Americans, but all America,” Lewis told Letterman. “I think what is happening in America today is a threat not to just our own country, but the planet.”
