An Austin congressman has decided he would join a growing list of political figures that will not attend the president elect's inauguration in Washington D.C. Friday.

Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) announced on Twitter Tuesday afternoon that he wants to send "a message" to Donald Trump by using a strategy from Martin Luther King Jr.

His statement read:

"Respect, like Pennsylvania Avenue, is a two-way street. Instead of uniting the country, his continued unprecedented, unpresidential actions are dividing it. By repeatedly taking the lowest road, he is not showing respect for the highest office. We are in for a long struggle that must strategically utilize every nonviolent opposition tool available."

Doggett isn't the first member of Congress to announce he or she was boycotting the inauguration.

According to ABC News, more than 50 Democratic members of Congress declared they would sit this one out. Many citing the recent tiff between Trump and Rep. John Lewis for their reasoning.

Lewis, also known for his work during the civil rights era and for protesting alongside Martin Luther King, said in a Friday interview that Trump was unfit to be president.

Saturday, Trump responded by attacking Lewis's district and labeling it in "horrible shape and falling apart". He also noted that the congressmen should spend more time worrying about his district than election results.
