Donald Trump and comedian Steve Harvey met Friday as part of the president-elect's plan to improve the inner cities, the host of Family Feud told reporters.
Harvey said he will work with Housing and Urban Development Secretary-designate Ben Carson and "see if we can bring about some positive change in the inner cities."
Trump appeared briefly before reporters to introduce his guest: "Here’s a good friend of ours ... everybody knows Steve Harvey. Is everybody having fun?"
Harvey, who also hosts a radio show, said Trump sounded sincere and that he agreed to meet with the president-elect because "the only way we're going to unify our country" is to talk with each other.
Harvey also practiced his profession, joking about the prospect of a Family Feud battle between the Trumps and Obamas.
That'd be good," Harvey said. "Or how 'bout the Clintons?"
Harvey also said his meeting with Trump is not a sign he is jumping into politics.
"I ain't gonna pass a background check," he said.FacebookTwitterGoogle+LinkedInPresident-elect Donald Trump: A look at his career and 2016 campaign> Fullscreen
