Steve Harvey Regrets Sit Down With Donald Trump

Morning show host Steve Harvey publicly admits he now regrets meeting with President Donald Trump earlier this year.

“My wife told me to skip meeting with Trump, I should’ve listened,” he opened up to the Hollywood Reporter.

Harvey now understands the criticism he received from the black community following the highly controversial meeting.

“I was being called names that I’ve never been called: Uncle Tom. A coon. A sellout,” he said to the publication.

Steve explained, in a tweet and later on his radio show, the meeting was set up by the Obama transition team and since Barack Obama is a personal friend, he had no issue with taking the meeting with Trump.

“I didn’t see that coming. Jesus,” Harvey admitted during the interview. “It was so vicious that it really threw me.”

Harvey explains the meeting was originally scheduled around his birthday and he and his family had plans previously scheduled. The meeting lasted only 20 minutes and Harvey told reporters the two basically discussed golf. That tidbit of information sparked even more criticism because those opposed to the meeting felt the conversation should have been more productive.

Steve confirms he has met with HUD Secretary Ben Carson several times and announcement of their collaboration should come by the end of the year.

“We’re actually trying to get it started,” he said. “Hopefully before the year goes out, we’ll be making the announcement about the first vision center.”
