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

17 February, 2017, 00:41 | Author: Eddie Kim

Ryan showed up on CNN this afternoon to discuss the presser and Trump's request for her to set up a meeting between the CBC and the president.

President Donald Trump asked a black journalist on Thursday if she would set up a meeting between his administration and the Congressional Black Caucus.

At one point during his 80-minute missive, Trump was asked whether he meant to include the members of the CBC in conversations about enacting his agenda to help inner cities.

Trump went on to say he had planned to meet with the group, but the plan was canceled by caucus members.

"Are they friends of yours?" he asked.

"I would love to meet with the Black Caucus", Trump said.

"What I have been doing for the past several weeks is working closely with my partner on these efforts, Senator Bernie Sanders", the congressman said, referring to the independent senator from Vermont.

Ryan declined to set up the meeting, noting that while she knows some of the members of the CBC, she is just a reporter and was simply asking a question - as reporters do.

Ryan, who has been covering the White House for 20 years, tweeted immediately following the press conference, "I am a journalist not a convener! But he probably was told by (Senate Minority Leader Chuck) Schumer or somebody like that, some other lightweight", Trump added.

For his part, Cummings said in a statement after the news conference that Trump's suggestions are untrue, that he was never told by Schumer or anybody to skip a meeting with him, and that he wasn't planning on not meeting with the president.

"Well, I would. I tell you what, do you want to set up the meeting?"

Some Twitter users called out Trump's condescending tone. "I was all set to have the meeting", the president claimed.

"Every White House has someone to deal with this kind of meeting", she told Baldwin. I was actually looking forward to meeting with the President about the skyrocketing price of prescription drugs. We sent you a letter on January 19, but you never wrote us back.
