To kick off Black History Month, President Donald Trump gathered together a group of Black, umm … leaders, that he plans to work with during his administration. Some of those gathered worked on Trump’s presidential campaign and were recruited by Omarosa Manigault and will work with her at the White House. None of the individuals involved spoke about whether they were involved in any advocacy groups on behalf of the Black community — they only praised Trump and were happy to be at the table. Here are the people the Trump administration has designated to help the Black community and what they stated during the meeting.

“Paris Dennard, Thurgood Marshall College Fund represents the 47 publicly supported historically black colleges and universities, which I know you are very much in support of. So it’s a pleasure to be here, sir.”
