Press Conference Backfire: Rep. Elijah Cummings Calls Out Trump For Making Up A Story About Him

Rep. Cummings said that Trump’s claim that Democrats backed out of the meeting with him was a made up piece of fiction.

In a statement to the press, Rep. Cummings said: “I have no idea why President Trump would make up a story about me like he did today. Of course, Senator Schumer never told me to skip a meeting with the President. I was actually looking forward to meeting with the President about the skyrocketing price of prescription drugs. 

I also sincerely have no idea why the President made this claim in response to an unrelated question about the Congressional Black Caucus. I am sure members of the CBC can answer these questions for themselves. “The skyrocketing price of prescription drugs is an issue that affects every American family—not just people of color—and I hope the President will make good on his promise to finally allow HHS to negotiate lower drug prices on behalf of American families. I look forward to meeting with him on this issue and others.”
