Black conservative Rep. Byron Donalds is taking up arms against the Congressional Black Caucus after they rejected his bid to join — slamming their ideological intolerance in a new interview, before a meeting with former President Donald Trump.
Freshman lawmaker Donalds (R-Fla.) met with the 45th commander-in-chief Thursday at his New Jersey golf club, where he was one of multiple members of the Republican Study Committee to gather with the former president to discuss the party’s agenda.
In a tweet Friday, which included a picture of the two men, the Florida lawmaker said he and Trump discussed “many of the issues America is facing now that he is out of office.”
“Under Biden, we have rising inflation, open borders, an energy crisis, a stagnant economy, & weak foreign policy,” he added. “We miss your leadership, sir.”
News of the visit comes after Donalds accused the CBC of excluding him from their caucus over his political affiliations.
