Former governor of Maryland, Martin O’Malley, has joined Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) on his campaign against President-elect Donald Trump.
After a recent feud between Trump and Lewis played out on Twitter, O’Malley, who left the governorship in 2015 to run in the presidential primaries on the Democrat ticket, joined the Democratic representative in hitting back at Trump with some shocking characterizations.
O’Malley took to Twitter to suggest that Trump and his incoming administration are somehow similar to Nazi Germany and the Ku Klux Klan.
“Now is not the time for reconciliation, Dietrich Bonhoeffer didn’t reconcile with the Nazis. MLK didn’t reconcile with the KKK. Now we fight,” he wrote.

O’Malley was also recently in Utah in an effort to garner support from the traditionally red state for his anti-Trump cause.
“The Democratic Party needs to rebuild. And the time to do that is right now. And that sort of rebuilding won’t take place in Washington, it’ll take place in Salt Lake City, It’ll take place in Utah. It’ll take place in states across the United States,” O’Malley told Good4Utah.
According to O’Malley, Utah won’t always be a red state as the power of the political parties constantly shifts.
