YOU CAN'T SIT WITH US: BLACK CAUCUS TELLS TRUMP 'BOY, BYE'
The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is not having it with Donald Trump. The group of lawmakers met with Trump back in March because they felt like they couldn't turn down the invite -- but when asked for a second meeting, the group had an easy response: HELL NO. 👋🏾
Led by Cedric Richmond, a baller Democrat from Louisiana, the CBC made it waaay clear that the President's policies DO NOT square with what they feel black families need.
Among the policies that the CBC is not feelin': the acceleration of the war on drugs and budget cuts to historically black colleges and universities. The group also blasted the President for straight up ignoring the eight other times they had reached out with concerns. (You can read a whole lot more about their response from NYMag.)
The CBC saw Trump's bullshit for what it was: a request for a photo op. And this was one reality TV show the group was not about to audition for. “No one wants to be a co-star on the reality show,” one anonymous Democratic aide told Politico.
Cheers to that. #NastyDontQuit, and neither is the CBC.
