For nearly 30 years, Steve Harvey has entertained, inspired and challenged America with his quick-witted humor, big heart, and passion for igniting change in the world.
After decades in the limelight, he’s certainly no stranger to the criticism that arises from going against the grain as a public figure. And though Steve may be a big softie deep down, he’s not afraid to take a resolute and unapologetic stance on issues that he feels strongly about—as his recent actions can attest to.
On Friday, Harvey was asked to meet with President-elect Donald Trump at the Trump Tower in order to discuss actions to move America in the right direction.
“Our president (Obama) asked that all of us sit down and talk to one another in order to move our country forward…the transition teams on both sides asked me to meet and I’m glad I did,” he shared in a tweet.
Harvey called the meeting both “congenial and sincere.”
While he felt he was doing the right thing in collaborating with the future leader of our country, many did not agree.
Since news of the meeting surfaced, Harvey has received massive backlash from critics who are furious over his willingness to work with the Trump administration in any capacity.
On his Monday radio show, Harvey admitted that the widespread attacks on his character have been hurtful.
