In a rambling and downright bizarre press conference yesterday, Trump asked an African-American reporter if the Congressional Black Caucus were friends of hers. Having assured the public that he is “the least racist person,” Trump then responded to a question by April Ryan, a journalist for American Urban Radio Networks.

Ryan appeared on MSNBC later yesterday to state, "I'm not a facilitator, I'm not a convener, I am a White House correspondent. I am a reporter, a journalist.” She noted that members of the group of African-American lawmakers did want to set up a meeting, which they later confirmed in a tweet to Trump:
