Actor and comedian Steve Harvey is the latest person to have walked into the Trump tower in Manhattan. His comments on their meeting revealed more than expected.
“I stepped from behind my microphone and I came and talked to the guy who is going to be the 45th president,” Harvey told after walking out of the tower. He also shocked reporters when he said he found Trump, “both congenial and sincere.”

The host of Family Feud clearly enjoyed his time with the President-elect and is planning on unifying with the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This department will be tentatively head by nominee Dr. Ben Carson.
Harvey brought us in on the story saying:
“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 dialog in looking at programs and housing to help our inner cities and he’s very open to my mentoring efforts across the country.”
“I walked away feeling like I had just talked with a man who genuinely wants to make a difference in this area,” he added. “I feel that something really great could come out of this… I would sit with him anytime.”
Harvey surprised many people at Trump tower since his endorsement for Hillary Clinton was clear. Along with the endorsement, it was later discovered that Harvey’s staff provided prepared questions for an interview with Clinton. But regardless, Harvey is ready to help “bring about some change” during the Trump administration.
The men talked a lot about work with Dr. Ben Carson and what they could do to raise up some of our cities. The two touched on once city in particular as seen below:
“Another one they want to start with as a target is Detroit,” Harvey told reporters. “Ben Carson expressed that because quite naturally he is from Detroit. I want to do something with all of the major inner cities to see if we can bring about some change and help some of these young people out. And so that’s why I’m here, and it was a successful meeting. And he seemed really sincere.”
Harvey walked out of the building with a clear sense of accomplishment and said, “It’s an honor to be invited to talk, and I think that’s the only way that we’re going to unify our country. We’ve got to talk.”
