Family Feud host and comedian Steve Harvey had praise for Donald Trump’s efforts to help underprivileged communities.
Harvey had met with the president in Trump Tower during the transition. They discussed plans for housing initiatives that would be led by Dr. Ben Carson who now serves as head of Housing and Urban Development. Harvey is happy to work with Trump on important issues:
“As for as doing what he promised me he would do, he is doing it,” Harvey told TMZ. “I’m working with HUD. I’m going to get some housing for underprivileged people. We’re going to set up some centers around the country. I’ve met with HUD. It’s going really well. God willing, it will work out.”
“He’s keeping his word to what he said he would do,” Harvey added when asked if he was happy with the job Trump has done so far.
Harvey defended his decision to work with Trump, saying “Change can only happen when we sit at the table. If we sit at the table, then we can have a say as to what’s to be eaten on the menu. I have an obligation to take a seat at the table when invited.”
We can only imagine the backlash Harvey is going to get from the left for daring to speak his mind. Kudos to him for having the courage to do so though. When he first met with Trump he received criticism from people like CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill who called him a “mediocre negro.”
