Caucuses Demand Justice From Trump Administration; Vow To Continue Protests

Ryan responded that she would not do that as she's "just a reporter", to which Trump replied, "No - set up the meeting".

But Ryan used the abbreviation "CBC" for the Congressional Black Caucus at first - and Trump didn't appear to know what she was referring to. Ryan is black. "Are they friends of yours?"

The answer came in response to a question about whether he would meet with the Congressional Black Caucus. I think it's great, the Congressional Black Caucus.

Late in a rollicking and unexpected news conference, Trump took a question from Ryan, who asked about his campaign promise to revitalize the American urban centers he frequently described in bleak terms.

"Set up the meeting", Trump continued. "Of course, Senator Schumer never told me to skip a meeting with the President". "I do want to solve the problem". He said he was trying to meet with the president about the "skyrocketing price of prescription drugs".

Trump said he wants to focus on education, healthcare and crime in the inner cities and said that part of Chicago "is worse than nearly any of the places in the Middle East that we talk about and you talk about every night on the newscasts".

'You have people. they lock themselves into apartments, petrified to even leave in the middle of the day.
