Rep. Byron Donalds, a freshman lawmaker representing Florida’s 19th District, says he was not surprised the CBC turned him down because he is a vocal supporter of Donald Trump. But that fact, he says, says more about liberal black lawmakers on Capitol Hill than about the Brooklyn-born Republican.
“Last time I checked I was born black,” Donalds told Fox News. “I’ve grown up black. I’ve made it in America as a black man. I graduated college as a black man.”
The far-left Congressional Black Caucus has at times allowed GOP lawmakers to join, such as Rep. Mia Love and Rep. Allen West, but liberal CBC members literally celebrated when the outspoken West was defeated in 2012.
Donalds, 42, served as a Florida state rep before running in the GOP-leaning 19th District after incumbent Francis Rooney did not seek re-election.
CNN invited Rep. Donalds on to discuss the CBC only to ambush him with a montage of Donald Trump clips meant to demonstrate Trump’s racist history, including the former president’s “both sides” comment that the media has twisted.
Rep. @ByronDonalds says he is being denied entry into the Congressional Black Caucus because he is a Republican.

“That has nothing to do with this discussion,” Donalds said of the clip. “This is whether the ideology of somebody who is conservative is welcome in the Congressional Black Caucus. It’s really that simple.”
After the interview, a spokesman for Rep. Donalds said CNN attempted to set “multiple traps” for the freshman lawmaker because “white liberals can’t comprehend how Black people could be Republicans, especially Trump supporters…”
In the Fox News interview, Rep. Donalds told Laura Ingraham he wants to be part of the CBC in order to bring conservative ideals to the table.
“I know that a lot of members of the CBC will not agree with me, and I’m not going to agree with them,” he said, “but it’s about actually having the conversation that the Left always says they want to have.”

To Democrats, Rules, Truth, Facts, Reality and History are all irrelevant,
if the Democrats do not WANT to believe them.
Democrats will just make up their own Rules, Truth, Facts, Reality or History
To fit what they WANT to believe
or fits into the Con or Deception that they are running at the time.
Liberals aka Communists wouldn’t know the truth if it bit them on the nose. Like their father the devil, the only thing that they are really good at doing is lying.
YET its the ‘conservatives’ who the media keeps saying who are the racists..
PULL THE other leg.
Maybe he would be accepted in the congressional WHITE CAUCUS. Oh, never mind.
If the White Caucus consisted of Republicans, he WOULD be accepted !
Guess he’s not black enough for the phony CBC.
I HAVE TO THINK THAT THERES MORE REASONS WHY THIS Black politician wasn’t allowed to join the other Black politician organization operating in Washington D.C., What could such a organization as the ” BLACK CAUSUS HAVE THAT THEY WOULDN’T accept a member who was of the BLACK race like the other members. Could it be that this BLACK organization has an agenda which only accepts members like BARB,RA WATERS TO JOIN IN THEIR SICRET AGENDA WHICH THEY DON’T WANT EXPOSED.
WHAT white caucus.. IF someone tried to get one made it would get SUED before the ink was dried on the paperwork to try and set it up…
I Was referring in my comments above to Maxine Walters, and not Barbra waters, Sorry!
The Democrats, the party of diversity and inclusiveness aka the party that is racist and practices racism. Isn’t communism beautiful?
ONLY IF You support their agenda.. OTHERWISE “You ain’t black!”
I have to wonder just what the White race” Note, when the ” Race Huslers , Sush as the AL. Sharptons, The Reverent Jessie Jackson., And of course, the Maxine Waters of the ” Race Baiting Marxist Democrat Party, include all people Of the White Race condemning all WHITE PEOPLE EVEN THOSE White People who were slaves themselves. Talk about your ” Race Huslers, The Democrat party has it down to a SSciencs ” Those Greedy WHITE MEN held the Blade Man Back” Only thing that blows this theory of the Democrat party Kurt of the water is President Barack H. Obama, explain him, A Black Race Man as president, if they can…
My corrections of my comments above” Talk about your face Huslers, the Democrat party has it down to a science …..
Black Liberals in the Black Caucus are unfortunately still “On the Plantation”, which is where the Democrats want them to be ! If they came over to the OTHER side, they would see how much BETTER, and successful their lives could actually be.
Same for 85+ percent of the black voting base..
The Black Race has benefited from, as the Burnie Sanders, of the Marxist Democrat party like to point their fingers at ” The Greedy White Men are the only reason all Black Race have been held back and denied advancements because of the White Men. The Quote say the failures of some of the Black Race is their own failures. This quote said, ” A rising tide raised all boats, …including the Black Race, who have been a part of this economy…..
The thought expressed by the Marxist Democrat elite is that “The Greedy White Race of men held the Black man bak. The thing that proves the Democrat elite wrong is that the Democrat party includes White men in their party….
Wow, the Caucus is so in bed with the democrats, the progeny of the Confederate culture it grew under, and now they are showing their true colors. I guess this administration has so exposed their hate mongering and racist bigotry, and Anti-Americanism that the Black Caucus can’t pretend anymore. Seems like they are now exhibiting Black Supremacy and Black Caucus privilege which both the democrats and the Caucus dictate.
FOR Years they’ve been showing it.. Voters (and the media) seem to not care…
Sounds like some Black folk in Congress have a bit of a supremacy problem.
Democrats have had a superiority complex for Decades..
The Black Caucus has a attitude problem They can discriminate freely but not anyone else had better try it, in other words, ” Don’t do as we do but do what we say “
What a good interview. Donalds really showed up this leftist propaganda artist for what she is.
America would be so much better off today if only a man like Donalds, NC’s Mark Robinson, Sen. Tim Scott, Ben Carson or a host of other conservative black men or women could have been the first black president instead of Barack Obama.
Of course it’s going to be “diversity but only if we agree with it”…
Does Mr. Donalds not understand that he’s not black because he’s not a Democrat? No less an authority than President Asterisk, Joe Biden says so. Dem magic also works the other way around – Bill Clinton was hailed as the first black President – not sure why….because he played the sax? Then half white Obama got to be the “first” black President. If a black Republican becomes President we STILL won’t have had the first black President because as soon as he signed his Republican membership he no longer qualified as black.
So true.. IF You are conservative, you are “seen as being white” regardless of what ethnicity you are.
THE QUOTE,” NO Man can can serve two MASTERS,…..” comes to ones mind in relation to this BLACKMA APPLING FOR MEMBERSHIP IN THE DEMOCRAT LEFTIST BLACK CAUSUS…..
He served as a Florida state Representative !!! So he’s too Qualified to join. ??? He’s more qualified than our vice president. And even sounds more Intelligent.
THIS “CBC” IS NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF LIB COMMUNISTS. They truly think, that they are important, of which they are not. The dumbocrats support them, only for the phony votes they get from these dorkheads. Donalds is just getting started, and i am sure he will be around for quite a few more years. And after 2022 votes, the “good people” will be in charge again in the House and Senate.
Which is why i would LOVE TO SEE someone sue to get the CBC SHUT DOWN for being racist.
There is no such thing as the black caucus anymore. Now it’s the Black Communist Caucus.
That describes the entire DNC
The CBC is racist to begin with and micro-racist internally if the person is not black enough, meaning conservative, Trump notwithstanding.
So you say this: “Last time I checked I was born black,” Donalds told Fox News. “I’ve grown up black. I’ve made it in America as a black man. I graduated college as a black man.”
You are so very wrong – if in doubt, ask biden cause he said something to the affect that if you do not vote for him instead of Trump, you ain’t black.
So since you are a Trump supporter, you ain’t black but then neither is harris but she hates Trump so that is all that counts.
