Black media was banned from Trump's Young Black Leadership Summit: report

Jason Johnson, political consultant and Politics Editor for the online news site The Root, said that despite the optics of Trump’s “Young Black Leadership Summit”, no black press was allowed into the event. He also had harsh words for the “self-loathing” audience.

“This is a testament to sort of overall authoritarianism and violence this president encourages. They blocked all black press from being able to come to the event,” Johnson said. “We were initially given passes to go to this event and then they took them back because they didn’t want anyone there who might possibly see the kind of violence this president was encouraging.”

Unsurprising. And the fact that they don't care that the optics look so bad tells us everything we need to know about the white supremacists running the US.
