On May 2, the Congressional Black Caucus hosted their Twitter Town Hall and Tweetstorm, with a focus on the first 100 days of the Donald Trump administration.
The Tweetstorm invited questions, answers, opinions, suggestions and observations about the White House and other issues of note, which had to be accompanied by the hashtag: #Stay Woke
Some of the topics were education, police, Pell grants, scholarships, money, immigration, jobs, and the government.
U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted the question: “Trump keeps talking about job creation-but I haven’t seen much effort on his part. What’s he been up to instead?”
In response, Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., said they knew Trump’s promise to create jobs was “bogus” and, instead, he has been focusing on taking away health care, imposing a ban on Muslims entering the country and building a wall between Mexico and the U.S.
“We aren’t going to let that happen,” Lee said in a video response. “His agenda is outrageous. We want to create jobs and we are going to stay woke.”
Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence, of Michigan, added: “I know that we have so much work to do, but if we stay together and stay woke and do the work. We can transform this crisis we are in and keep America the place that we all are one nation, under God indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
