President Trump on Thursday touted a "very important" social media summit at the White House, which will not feature anyone from Facebook or Twitter but instead numerous far-right figures.

Those who have been invited to the summit on Thursday afternoon include conservative radio host Bill Mitchell, a promoter of the QAnon conspiracy, as well as Ali Alexander, the activist who recently attacked Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) on Twitter by claiming she is "not an American black," Politico reports. This claim about Harris that Democrats quickly condemned as racist was shared in a tweet by Donald Trump Jr., although he subsequently deleted it.
