Black people not being allowed in to Trump's "Black Voices" event after non-blacks fill the room

The room where Trump is speaking is at full capacity. The fire marshall is not allowing anyone else in. Many black individuals are expressing upset feelings about not being allowed in over non-black attendees.

Unfortunately I was unable to get into the event; however, @markknoller and @stphnfwlr have great live-tweet threads going if y'all want updates on what's happening.

8. Lol, thanks for that

I'm wondering how much they paid the Blacks to attend. Bet they had to pay for their own tshirts, too.

7. Look, he's already done so much for you people.

He's delivered 110%, even delivered on promises he didn't make.

11. That is the most on-brand thing ever

Like holding an event at a HBCU and only inviting a token handful of students to a fundraiser full of old rich white people (I'm sure those students were THRILLED to be there, lol) while telling everyone else to stay in their dorm rooms. He can't even pretend convincingly for one short event that he isn't racist AF.

12. That's the joke: Trump's views on black issues are informed by other white people.
