Congressional Black Caucus Rejects Trump Invite

The New York Daily News reports:

The Congressional Black Caucus sends its regrets to “the Honorable Omarosa Manigault.” The CBC on Wednesday rejected the reality star villain-turned-adviser’s invite to meet with President Trump, citing his inaction on their key policy issues — and following a report some of its members had been miffed by Manigault’s grandiose sign-off.

“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,” chairman Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) wrote in a letter to Trump.

“I fail to see how a social gathering would benefit the policies we advocate for,” he added. “The CBC will always be willing to engage in discussion and debate about policies and programs that will make America a more perfect union for all.”
