The Congressional Black Caucus is refusing to meet with President Trump after he extended an invitation to them.
This comes after months of Black leaders calling the President a white supremacist and a racist.
The Washington Examiner reported:
The Congressional Black Caucus is declining an invitation from the White House to meet with President Trump.
“Given the lack of response to any of the many concerns we have raised with you and your administration, we decline your invitation for all 49 members of the Congressional Black Caucus to meet with you,” Louisiana Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond, the chairman of the caucus, wrote in a letter to the White House on Wednesday.
The caucus also released a June 9 invitation from Omarosa Manigault, the former contestant from NBC’s Apprentice who now works in the White House Office of Public Liaison. In the letter, Manigault invited all of the caucus members to a follow-up meeting after the group’s leaders came to the White House on March 22.
“As requested by the president, we would like to schedule a follow-up meeting with you and the entire CBC membership to continue the discussion of issues presented in our previous meeting,” Manigault wrote.
Richmond said the CBC gave Trump a 130-page document “because we recognized the opportunity to educate both you and your administration on the difficult history of black people in this country, the history of the CBC and solutions to advance black families in the 21st century.”
