Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) exposed that he was being barred from the Congressional Black Caucus due to the fact he was a Conservative.
GOP Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida, a Black conservative, on Thursday said that he was being snubbed by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC).
Donalds and his staff have contacted CBC members on multiple occasions since the congressman was first sworn into office in January, according to spokesman Harrison Fields, but their efforts were rebuffed.
“Since starting in Congress, our office and the congressman have engaged with several CBC members expressing his interest in joining, but all we’ve got is the cold shoulder,” Fields said. “The sad reality is although the congressman and those in the CBC share the same race, the (R) behind his name disqualifies him from membership today.”
He then went on CNN and completely destroyed CNN host Brianna Keilar.

He also took on CNN’s Chris Cuomo:
The so-called bipartisan CBC should welcome all ideologies to the table & strive to find common ground on issues. https://t.co/rplN8Y5ja7

Now, we have this.
Byron Donalds announced on Twitter that he met with 45th President Donald Trump.
He said that they talked about the many issues facing America right now.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting with POTUS Trump to discuss 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.
We miss your leadership, sir. pic.twitter.com/I6MrGSvy6C
