As if already realizing how condescending he had come off, Trump then added that he "would love to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus". "I think it's great". "I want to find a friendly reporter", Trump said, while looking out at the room of raised hands.

Also in response to Ryan's question about meeting with the CBC, Trump said that Rep. Elijah Cummings had called off a meeting with the president because he had been advised by prominent Democrats that it would be "bad politics".

Following the press conference, Ryan appeared on MSNBC to discuss Trump's comments.

When asked if he would want to meet Trump personally, House Assistant Minority Leader James E. Clyburn, D-S.C., a veteran CBC member, said "want to meet him?" "Of course, Sen. [Chuck] Schumer never told me to skip a meeting with the president". I can't have that meeting'. Prior to taking her question, the president told Ryan she was "very professional and very good".

"And that's part of the problem with this country", Trump said.

"We sent you a letter on January 19, but you never wrote us back", the CBC wrote through its official Twitter account.
