The Congressional Black Caucus Responds To Donald Trump With One Perfect Tweet

The Congressional Black Caucus Responds To Donald Trump With One Perfect Tweet”

President Donald Trump on Thursday asked an African American reporter at a press conference to set up a meeting for him with members of the Congressional Black Caucus, adding, "Are they friends of yours?"

Interviewed on CNN following the conference, Ryan said she did not know why the White House had not responded to the CBC's request for a meeting and that, "as far as facilitating that meeting or convening that meeting, that is not my place".

"Are they friends of yours?" he asked.

The Congressional Black Caucus also responded, "Hi, @realDonaldTrump", We're the CBC. "I think that was pretty instructive to me".

Trump made the comments after Ryan asked if he would include the CBC in conversations on his "inner-city agenda".

Cummings "was all excited and then he said, 'Oh, I can't move, it might be bad for me politically".

The organization posted a Tweet shortly after the press conference indicating a letter was sent to Trump just before his inauguration.

He suggested Cummings was told by Senate majority leader Sen.

Cummings told POLITICO last week that he meant to meet with Trump to discuss prescription drug prices. "But thank you for answering my questions".

Rep. Jim Clyburn of SC says there is "an element of disrespect" in Trump's comment to journalist April Ryan.

Trump had told Ryan that he meant to "do a lot of work" to combat inner-city blight. I can't have that meeting'.

Ryan has already been in the news recently after she ended up in a confrontation with Trump communications official Omarosa Manigault. "You know we called him and called him and he was all set". "Of course, Senator Schumer (of New York) never told me to skip a meeting with the President".

'He was probably told by Schumer or somebody like that - some other lightweight - he was probably told: "Don't meet with Trump, it's bad politics",' the president said.

"But you never wrote us back". I was actually looking forward to meeting with the President about the skyrocketing price of prescription drugs. "So we're going to do a lot of great work on the inner cities".
