The Congressional Black Caucus said no to a meeting with President Donald Trump on Wednesday, and they sent him a letter explaining exactly why they’ve refused to meet with him.
Written by CBC Chair Cedric Richmond (D-La.), the letter stated that since their March 22 meeting, the President has taken no action regarding requests made by the caucus and warned that the White House is pursuing policies and budget cuts which will hurt those in the black community.
“[W]e have seen no evidence that your Administration acted on our calls for action, and we have in fact witnessed steps that will affirmatively hurt Black communities,” Richmond wrote. “While we agreed to explore possible future discussions when we first met, it has become abundantly clear that a conversation with the entire CBC would not be entirely productive, given the actions taken by your Administration since our first meeting.”
