Rep. Elijah Cummings slammed President Donald Trump for telling reporters Thursday the Maryland Democrat had cancelled a meeting with him because it could damage him politically. Trump askedApril Ryan, White House correspondent for the American Urban Radio Networks who asked the question.
Trump said that he was disappointed that a meeting with Cummings, a member of the caucus and a former chairman, never materialized.
"I'm a reporter", Ryan replied, appearing flummoxed.
After the press conference, Ms Ryan addressed the racially charged incident on Twitter. "But he probably was told by (Senate Minority Leader Chuck) Schumer or somebody like that, some other lightweight", Trump added.
"I was way back", Ryan said. "And one thing we will do is make sure that there's daylight and transparency and that we call out the things that are done in the dark and done with discriminatory objective", he said.
Trump had told Ryan that he meant to "do a lot of work" to combat inner-city blight. "I am the least anti-semitic person that you've ever seen in your entire life", he told reporters.
On any other day with any other president, a member of the Congress claiming that the president made up a story about him would be at the top of the news headlines, but in the era of Trump, it gets overlooked and consumed by a title wave of other falsehoods. "I was all set to have the meeting", the president claimed. Prior to taking her question, the president told Ryan she was "very professional and very good". "It's bad politics.' And that's part of the problem in this country".
Cummings said he was actually looking forward to meeting with Trump to talk about the price of prescription drugs, which he had been collaborating with Sen.
"But you never wrote us back".
'We are going to be working very hard on the inner cities having to do with education, having to do with crime, ' he pledged.
