Donald Trump says he is the least racist person you will ever meet.
He said that at the very same press conference where Reporter April Ryan, the White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks asked the President if he will meet with the Congressional Black Caucus.
Since Ryan is Black and you know, all Blacks know each other, Trump said, “Do you want to set up the meeting?" Trump asked Ryan, “Are they friends of yours? Set up a meeting. Set up the meeting. I would love to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus, I think it's great.”
Following the press conference, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Missouri, the former chair of the CBC, told ABC News that he was not amused and that he could barely believe what he was hearing. He was joined by Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss. who called the request "disingenuous."
"All black people don't work for each other," said Thompson. "All black people don't know each other."
But wait....he is the least racist person you will ever meet. He said so.
As for Ryan, she said, ""I was sitting there, I could have asked questions on Russia as well," Ryan said. "I'm very versed in a lot of things but it's unfortunate that when you see me, you see my color. But I am a journalist and I asked the question and I got an answer -- I got his answer."
