President-elect Trump has put together an all-star team since locking up the election in November. However, as Inauguration Day nears, the future president still has some surprises up his sleeve.Most people are familiar with Trump’s plans to keep jobs in America, fight terrorism, and stop illegal immigration, but Trump has shown the attention to detail that running the country entails. One area that hasn’t garnered as much media attention is Trump’s focus on battling inner city crime. However, that might be about to change now that Trump has brought Family Feud host Steve Harvey into the fold.
From Fox News:“Family Feud” host Steve Harvey met with President-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower on Friday.
After posing for photos with Trump in the lobby, the comedian told reporters that he came to meet with Trump after the transition teams of both President Obama and Trump reached out to him last week.
“I came and talked to the guy who’s going to be the 45th President of the United States,” Harvey said. “[We spoke about] housing for urban development…[to] bring some positive change in the inner cities. He wants to do something. He realizes he needs some allies in that department. He seemed really sincere about it.”Harvey said the meeting was “successful” adding that the pair spoke about everything from golf to their mutual friend Mark Burnett, and of course “Family Feud.”
To those that follow President-elect Trump closely, it will come as no surprise that he is making an effort to solve the problem in America’s urban environments. Trump has been consistent in his advocacy for change in American cities, even raising the issue during the presidential debates.
Bringing Harvey in to form a plan on the issue shows the Trump Administration is leaving no stone unturned ahead of the oath of office. Harvey adds to the diverse team Trump has put together in order to tackle the real problems every day Americans face.It is unclear what potential role Harvey could play going forward, but all indications are that he plans to take part in the important process.
