“President Donald Trump, during a heated press conference where he repeatedly sparred with the press, asked veteran African-American journalist April Ryan if she could help set up a meeting between him and the Congressional Black Caucus, asking her, “Are they friends of yours?”…
“Well I would, tell you what, do you want to set up the meeting? Are they friends of yours?” Trump asked.
“I’m just a reporter. I know some of them,” Ryan replied.
“Let’s go, let’s set up a meeting. I would love to meet with the Black Caucus,” Trump continued.
Shortly after the press conference, Ryan took to Twitter to denounce the president’s request, saying: “I am a journalist not a convener! But thank you for answering my questions.”…
The Congressional Black Caucus responded to Trump’s call for a meeting by pointing to their letter addressed on Jan. 19 inviting Trump to “engage in an earnest effort to work together on these issues,” which the caucus sent went unanswered.
“Hi, @realDonaldTrump. We’re the CBC. We sent you a letter on January 19, but you never wrote us back. Sad!” the caucus wrote on Twitter.”*
