During a chaotic and rambling press conference on Thursday, April Ryan, an African-American journalist with the American Urban Radio Networks, asked President Donald Trump if he would be arranging a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus to discuss actions he might be taking to help inner cities. "Well I would," Trump said. "Do you want to set up the meeting? Are they friends of yours? Set up the meeting!" The bizarre exchange follows Trump's repeated claims that he is the "least racist person" people would ever meet.

I listened to this on CNN, and all I could do is cringe. Just because you are black, does not mean you know... https://t.co/2xmQu9feLg
