I don't think it is appropriate, but stop short of saying he shouldn't be allowed to do it. Of course he has the right to boycott it, no matter how
misguided his effort is.
For example, for better or worse, Trump is our head of state and is in charge of what direction the government will head in. As a lawmaker, avoiding
these informative meetings is a mistake at best. At worst, they do a major disservice to their constituents because they won't have any
knowledge/input RE: the President's intentions/direction of the country.
You know, it is almost like none of those super-scary predictions about Trump actually came true. Far from it, actually. Our economy/stock market is
still doing well (actually breaking records now), jobs are returning and Americans are getting a good deal again. Our taxes are lower than they've
been in decades (middle class + corporate tax - great for jobs), we aren't forced (potentially at gun point) to provide the "individual mandate"
forced financing of ACA, gun rights are heavily expanding and people are again realizing how crucial the individual Citizen is to proper function of
the public's government.
The President's America First policy is stunningly seen by some as a negative, although no rational arguments against it/nationalism/etc have been
presented. The US Gov's job is to do what is best for this country, and to ensure our
unalienable rights are preserved and defended by any
means necessary. That is why we instituted government among men. Apparently someone has decided that patriotism and nationalism are something to be
derided, despite the fact that both qualities are needed for a strong and successful United States.
