Cummings told Dickerson that the Trump administration has plans to meet with the Congressional Black Caucus to work on urban issues. He also said that Trump responded to a letter from the Congressional Black Caucus just a few day ago.

"I've got to work with this president, but at the same time there has been nobody tougher on this president than I have," Cummings said.
