President-elect Donald J. Trump met with entertainer and talk show host Steve Harvey at Trump Tower on Friday to discuss efforts to help inner cities. The president-elect made a concerted effort to reach out to black voters during the campaign and, despite the media narrative, earned him the support of black civil rights leaders and voters.

“We’ve got to team up and see if we can bring about some positive change in the inner cities. That’s my only agenda. He agreed and he wants to do something,” Mr. Harvey told reporters in the lobby after the meeting. “They have a plan for the inner cities but they need some help and so that’s why they called me. So we’ll see what I can do.”

We’ve got to team up and see if we can bring about some positive change in the inner cities. That’s my only agenda. He agreed and he wants to do something.”
