Steve Harvey Meets with Donald Trump, Has Only Words of Praise for the President-Elect

Steve Harvey is the latest celebrity to meet with President-elect Donald Trump and the television host has landed a role working on housing issues initiatives alongside Ben Carson.

The 59-year-old comedian says he was invited by both Obama and Trump‘s transition teams.

“Our president (Obama) asked that all of us sit down and talk to one another in order to move our country forward… the transition teams on both sides asked me to meet and I’m glad I did,” Steve wrote in a note on Twitter. “I found him our meeting both congenial and sincere.”

Trump wants to help with the situations in the inner cities so he immediately got Dr. Ben Carson on the phone to put us together to begin dialogue in looking at programs and housing to help out inner cities and he’s very open to my mentoring efforts across the country,” Steve added. “I walked away feeling like I had just talked with a man who genuinely wants to make a difference in this area. I feel that something really great could come out of this… I would sit with him anytime.”

    … and now his ratings will plunge. This is a man who, supposedly, respects women. How can this even be happening? One is being bought. Initials: SH.

    I like it. Steve Harvey does respect women. The great thing is he understands what is going on in the inner cities and knows how to help ppl. He’s also a man’s man, and he worked hard to get where he is. I think someone like SH is perfect to sit with Trump and Carson. I think he will not candy-coat anything.

    I’m SO happy to hear that celebrities and Z-listers will be running our country and making decisions that affect hundreds of millions of people. What makes Steve Harvey qualified to hold an official government position or advice on public issues? Then again, Trump is president so nothing is surprising anymore.


    Well… I just lost all respect for Steve Harvey

  • Rollo

    If Harvey respects women they why does he continue to screw around on his wife?

  • Do Tell

    Well, I’ve never heard anything about SH cheating on his “current” wife. I know he’s been a cheater in the past and talked about it on some of his shows. But then, how many men are NOT guilty of cheating at some time or other in long-term relationships and marriages. I believe the majority of men cheat or will cheat if given the opportunity to do so (my opinion only).

    If SH cheats on his current wife who is supposed to be “the one,” his soulmate and wife for life, it must come down to him not being able to control his sex urges when they are away from each other.

  • Do Tell

    Well, Trump will be our new president whether we like it or not. We have to start somewhere. We can’t completely throw in the towel just yet. Hope and pray.

  • Do Tell

    I don’t think Trump would put him that high. Besides, SH has too many jobs already. The guy is everywhere! :-)

    However, Harvey does a lot of work with fatherless boys, mentoring, and helping young men and women to dream and reach a greater potential. In places like Chicago, the shootings & crime are happening in areas where ppl have lost hope for their futures. When ppl don’t care about their lives anymore, they stop caring about other people’s lives as well.

    I think Trump especially likes to hear about people who came from nothing and did something great with their lives. My friend said Harvey isn’t even educated, but he is a success story.

  • beariac

    I’m a man who likes men so if wonderboy’s a man’s man I’ll have him, but only if he doesn’t speak.

  • Gina

    As much as I hate Trump, it’s important to open up lines of communication with the man in order to influence him into doing right by the country.

  • Do Tell

    I think you have the right attitude.

  • Crusselsprouts

    Right?? The point is that he asked a celebrity, Steve Harvey, and did not reach out to–I don’t know–an urban housing activist, academic, or urban planner who has been working in American cities and understands how any of them work.

    Aha, Steve Harvey works for flash bulbs, but not necessarily substance.

  • Legendary Trolly

    No one cares about whats going on in the black communities. only some police mess, which is extremely pale in comparison
