A Georgia congressman with history of trading barbs with President Donald Trump took aim again on Twitter this week.

U.S. Rep. John Lewis sent a tweet wishing a happy birthday to “Madame President” Hillary Clinton as she turned 70 Thursday. The Democrat and Trump have gone back and forth after Lewis said Trump was not a legitimate president because of the influence of Russia in the presidential election.

Trump has called Lewis a “no action” congressman who needs to focus more on the Atlanta district Lewis represents.
