The Congressional Black Caucus rejection of a meeting with President Trump at the White House proves black representatives care more about politics than the people they represent.
Fox News reports:
The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) said Wednesday that its members had voted to reject an invitation to meet with President Trump, claiming that the administration’s policies are causing “legitimate alarm” among African-American lawmakers and their constituents.
CBC Chairman Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La., wrote in a letter to Trump that proposals in the president’s budget would “not only devastate the communities that we represent, but also many of the communities that supported your candidacy.
Unlike the technology CEOs that met with administration officials and Trump earlier this week, members of the Congressional Black Caucus rejected an invitation to meet with Trump.
Even though many of the CEOs have significant policy differences with Trump, they met with Trump to explore ways to modernize federal government operations.
The urban areas these black members represent are in horrible shape and a discussion about ways to improve the plight of their constituents with Trump should be high on their agenda.
Black Caucus members would rather score cheap political points than seek ways to find areas of common ground with the president.
