Last week Steve Harvey met with president elect Donald Trump and received a lot of backlash for it. Steve admits that some of the comments hurt him.
“On a personal note, a lot of y’all hurt me. 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.”
Steve said President Obama’s final address is what prompted to meet with Donald in the beginning.
“The only way we can heal the divide in this country is through conversation. When I listened to President Obama’s final speech in Chicago one of the things that stuck in my mind was when he told people to get out from behind our computers and get involved. I took that to mean, get from behind the microphone.”
