After April Ryan posted on Twitter that the White House wanted to hold a listening meeting with Black leaders the NAACP replied that it would not be going to any meeting with Donald Trump.
The White House wants a listening session w/ Black leaders. Some leading Black organizations have not been asked yet but are saying NO to what they call a photo op. @DerrickNAACP @MARCMORIAL @RevDrBarber.— AprilDRyan (@AprilDRyan) June 1, 2020
There are also concerns about @realDonaldTrump racial tweets this weekend.
We have not received an invite from the @WhiteHouse and at this juncture we will not accept for the following:— NAACP (@NAACP) June 1, 2020
1. We will NOT be a photo opp!
2. Trump has yet to show ANY leadership in regards to addressing the issues of our communities.
3. We’d rather meet on Nov. 3rd https://t.co/PHSx27WlUT
