This is What Steve Harvey Had to Say About Meeting with the President Elect [AUDIO]
Harvey met with the president elect at Trump Tower in New York City on the previous Friday. Harvey said Trump put him in touch with his appointee for HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson to discuss housing issues in inner cities. "A lot of y’all hurt me,” Harvey said. “I didn’t expect the backlash to be so fierce. I also understand if I’m going to keep getting stabbed at, at least while you’re stabbing me, you should understand my intent. "I’m from the hood. I’ve been putting in the work for years. I care about these inner cities because that’s where I’m from.”
Perhaps Harvey's intent now is that everyone kind of forgets about the meeting. Which will most likely happen over time now that some of the smoke has died down. In the long run will Steve Harvey take a hit in his popularity with African Americans? It's too early to tell.
In case you missed it, we have curated the audio from the program below.

So Trump and Harvey talked golf, golf courses and the election. And we find out it was Trump's people idea (not the president elect himself) that arranged the meeting with Steve Harvey. (Perhaps this was too big of an opportunity for Harvey to turned down.) Then Trump asked what he wanted and he gets Ben Carson on the phone. Now we wonder why Trump's people didn't set up a meeting with any celebrity Asians or Hispanics entertainers or even non-celebrity African Americans during this entire transition period. Well at least Steve Harvey finally came around and apologized to Asian men.
