U.S. Rep. Justin Amash of Grand Rapids stood up to president-elect Donald Trump via social media Saturday night, and it's been gaining him some accolades from far and wide.

Amash is currently serving his fourth term, and took to Twitter Saturday to speak about Donald Trump's criticism of civil rights icon John Lewis.

Trump's criticism of Lewis was laid out over three separate tweets, but Amash only needed three words to voice his disapproval.

Amash is a Republican, like Trump, or at least that's how he has run for office each of the four times he's been elected. On his Facebook page, he refers to his political leanings as "Libertarian".
