President Trump and VP Pence Meet With Congressional Black Caucus Leadership…

Against the backdrop of Devin Nunes announcing jaw-dropping revelation of surveillance of President-Elect Trump and his transition team by the Obama intelligence community, most of the Democrat political leadership (Elijah Cummings included) went into immediate rapid response and emergency action mode.  Simultaneously…

President Trump stomps on the political gas, targets a key and essential constituency, and strategically applies pressure with a meeting of the Congressional Black Caucus leadership.

.

Seamless. Well done. The timing just seems so unscripted.

[TRANSCRIPT] 3:10 P.M. EDTTHE PRESIDENT: Well, I’m deeply honored to welcome the members of the Congressional Black Caucus to the White House. We’re going to have a lot of meetings over the years, and I very much appreciate you being here.

Throughout my campaign, I pledged to focus on improving conditions for African American citizens. This means more to me than anybody would understand or know. Every American child has a right to grow up in a safe community, to attend great schools, to graduate with access to high-paying jobs.

America has spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas. I guess — I heard just recently in the Middle East we’ve spent as of about two months ago $6 trillion — $6 trillion, and you know where we are over there — while neglecting the fate of American children in cities like Baltimore and Chicago and Detroit.

African American citizens have given so much to this country. They’ve fought in every war since the Revolution, and they’ve fought hard. They’ve lifted up the conscience of our nation in the march toward civil rights, enriched the soul of America — and their faith and courage. And they’ve advanced our country in the fields of science, arts and medicine.

Elijah Cummings, who was here about two weeks ago, who I happen to think is a terrific man — I don’t know if he’ll say that about me, but I will tell you, I really liked him a lot. And we were talking about drugs and prescription drugs and the costs. And you go to Europe, you go to Canada, you go to other countries and you buy them for a fraction of what you pay in this country. And that’s been a very big subject for him, and it’s a subject for me that is very important. And we’re going to either do it in healthcare — which I think we’re going to do it in healthcare — or we’re going to do it separately.

But we’re going to bid on drug prices, and we’re going to try and have the lowest prices anywhere in the world, from really the highest. And that’s not only the drugs, it’s prescription drugs. But you go out to stores and you go even — in any community, rich or poor community, and you look at the kind of drug prices that we’re paying and it’s really unfair what’s happened in our country.

So we’re going to be instituting a very, very strong bidding process. We’ll probably need some legislation, but we’re going to do it regardless. We have to do it. And we’re going to get drug prices way down, way down. Some people think it’s as important as the healthcare measure, because people are being ripped off when they need their — they need drugs, they need prescription drugs. And we’re going to take care of that situation.

So again, I very much appreciate you being here. It’s a tremendous honor for me. And we’re going to work on different things, and we’re going to see if we can get a lot accomplished.

And with that, let’s get going. And thank you all very much. [Media Excused]

END – 3:13 P.M. EDT

        Not to worry, I can’t keep track either. A few months ago, debating my son, I said “what has Hillary Clinton done for Blacks? What has she done for you?” He responded, “I’m not Black, I’m Brown.”

        Having heard those same words several times over the past year, online, on a few of those fake news channels and amongst the young folks in my community, I thought to myself, “Oh boy, here we go again.”

        I refer to myself as an “American” but there are times when living in a sanctuary city I’m asked, “what island are you from?” ???????? Really???

        My response, “the Brooklyn Island. I am a Yankee.” [I know Brooklyn is not an island but people from other countries refer to us as Yankees and it is intended to be an insult. They hate when we take ownership of that term.]

        Endgame. I am an American, period.

    • There’s not one false word in Trump’s statement there, and the response is to ridicule?!

      Granted, African Americans have sunk lower in recent years, but when one racial group is singled out to be crippled with welfare the way the DNC has done, what can be expected?

      But before Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society vote-buying scheme, thousands upon thousands of black Americans gave their all for this nation even after having been enslaved, intentionally de-educated, and trained to be subservient to slave-masters.

      Trump is setting the stage for Draining the Plantaion of the DNC, and the best you can come up with is a snide, surly insult?

      😉 Just my two cents.

          Why would I resent a group of people who less than 50 years ago, had to fight to drink from my water fountain, sit at the same counter as me or go to a school with me, having their own caucas? That their caucus really doesn’s serve their constituents well is something I can’t fix, but I certainly don’t resent the fact that Blacks sorely needed representation , and poor Blacks still do.

          We lived through 8 years of racial division, and I for one welcome anyone, but especially the President, to attempt to heal some of the gaping wounds.

      There are indeed many troubling issues in the black community and issues to deal with that have only been made worse by Johnson’s Great Society. Yet why deny the facticity of this quote? There are many positives out of the black community as well and many that descended from slaves who have gone on to integrate into American society at large.

              I do actually remember segregated water fountains, comments about the ‘colored’, blacks and ‘white trash’ living on the other side of the railroad tracks, and so forth.
              The area was on the Alabama/Georgia border in a town divided by the Chattahoochee River, Lanett/West Point, about 75 miles south of Atlanta. The very heart of Dixie, you can’t get more Southern. But…for the most part people were civil, and the horror stories are 99% bs. I remember my mother giving a pair of shoes I had outgrown to barefoot black kids and women glaring at black people who didn’t get out of the way fast enough. Most of the mistreatment was simply bad manners and a pervasive assumption that the black people were inferior. It would get to anyone and stick after a while. The town was and is two thirds black, by the way. A lot of ill will which did occasionally erupt into violence.
              The blacks in the Northern cities had it as bad or worse, they were just kept down by different bad actors in different ways.

          There shouldn’t have ever been a Congressional Black Caucus. They segregate themselves by making up groups like this, especially with their positions of influence as Congressman. Hopefully, this changes under Pres. Trump.

          Most Americans would be happy to live and let live, I think, each to his own plan and with equal opportunities for all. No guarantees of outcomes, but for all, the ability to succeed with hard work and commitment and to create a better more prosperous society. Pres. Trump has made it clear through out his campaign and his young Presidency, that those things are what he wants for all Americans. He can do this with our help and I am confident things will be much better for us all as we go forward. We just have to push out the malcontents and sore losers standing in the way right now.

Secondly, these are still congressional leaders who vote on legislation. Any and all civil and substantive discussion can only prove beneficial. Lastly, different people can be effective on different things. There is a reason President Trump keeps referring to “drug prices” whenever meeting with the CBC. Perhaps he sees where they are more interested in that issue than some of the Republicans and may need their support to pass legislation? Honestly, whether it’s the benefits of a short term narrative, that will likely be glossed over by the MSM but not by the citizens of those reps districts, or potential help with prescription drug prices it seems like a win-win to me!

    #3:Why do you allow an irrational hatred of whites & an unfounded paranoia of a white conspiracy to get in the way of real black progress?

    #4: Why are the basic foundations for success, things like two parents in the home, tried & true traditional education, school uniforms, expectations, personal responsibility, discipline, consequences, civility & law & order looked upon as racist when applied to black communities?

    #5: Why do you insist upon teaching black children they’re victims & allowing them lower expectations, thus giving them an excuse to fail & hate?

    I suspect Trump will be nice to the black caucus members until he is attacked by one of them. Then he makes an example out of the dummy. You work with this man or you suffer.

    Brian Williams is not a reporter, he is a PAID HACK. There are no more TV reporters, they are all PAID HACKS. The more he talks, the less people watch him.

    Someone notify that dimwit Alice from the WH Press hen house.
    She’ll be asking Spicer when the meeting is going to take place?

    A few of these meetings and these folks will be reregistering as Repubs.

    Trump broke the color line and anti-Semitic line in West Palm/Palm Beach. He’s a civil rights activist. More cred than most of them put together.

    Our President has a number of outstanding qualities, including respectfulness, graciousness, sincerity, and not holding on to grudges. He is willing to reach out to the Black Caucus as he is willing to do with all Americans. This respect he shows, his willingness to reach out, with sincerity, will go a long way.

    I’m so proud of our President.

    It is time to lay all this racial stuff to rest and be Americans. It will take a long time because for far too long the Democrat party has kept stirring up unrest. It should just be a level playing field for all Americans. No real people care what color anyone is; they just want the government to stay out of it and create an even playing field where character and intellect rises to the top.

    The welfare laws that pay more when a father is not around, and the open borders that take all the entry level jobs from Americans have made very unfair playing fields. When no jobs are available dealing drugs, that are oh so plentiful, seems attractive to the young and those without fathers around.

    The uniparty has destroyed families and the concept of personal responsibility. Stop the drugs, close the borders, educate properly and hold accountable all citizens! Hold accountable ALL citizens that commit crimes. They are not “victims;” they are criminals.

    When any American has children it is their job to raise them and feed them and send them to college, not mine. I don’t care what color they are.

    At 1:20 regarding my Congress critter Elijah Cummings: “a terrific man” – Cringe! – “I don’t know if he’ll ever call Me that…” Let Trump be Trump I guess. That took some grace right there.

    A comment from Bull Durham made me wonder how April Ryan is reporting the meeting. Overall, decent report back to the Urban and black audience her employer targets. She reports that these meetings could be quarterly going forward. I have not heard her speak on the radio and I am surprised because she comes across professional and smooth — very different than watching her in action, unscripted in the press room! Budget concerns, his discussion of the black community during the campaign (ie acknowledging the real issues that are having a negative impact) are concerns

    Trump is really soooo winsome. These people really have to put in some kind of effort to not like him.

  31. VERY disappointed in the quality of some of the comments here-if you want to undermine President Trump’s hard work, you are doing a great job! My family is mixed. Trump is doing EXACTLY what is needed to move people (particularly younger folks) towards being unhyphenated Americans. He is treating them as a valuable part of the American team. Now, is it going to be all rainbows and skittles? Nope. But I can guarantee that there are people watching, and that there are minds and hearts that can be changed.

    We are all for equality based on population percentage, in the state, or the city, or where-ever.

    Football teams should reflect population race percentages. So if 70 percent of country is white, 70 percent of the players should be white. If 13 percent are black, then only 13 percent of Football players should be black.

    This seems fair to me, does it seem fair to you?

    In some parts of the country, the percentages will be a little different.

    So a Black owned company, only 13 percent employees could be black, 70 white, and 15 percent haspanic, and the 3 percent other asian/etc.

    If you want to be fair, you can’t get much fairer than this. 🙂

    If there is a Black Caucus , then the HAS to be a White Caucus, with the same perks. 🙂

    IMO, anytime membership in an organization defined by race, it is racist. Duh. Congressional Black Caucus is a racist organization that should be eliminated from our Capital. Since everyone is created equal, they should be representing and passing laws for everyone, not just their preferred race.

    Even the factcheck spells is out for them.
    http://www.factcheck.org/2008/01/congressional-black-caucus-for-blacks-only/

    Their stated mission is:
    “empower America’s neglected citizens – including but not limited to Americans of color”

    But they only allow blacks in their club. Not white people who’s job in Congress is to represent blacks. YOU have to be black.
