“Family Feud” host Steve Harvey said President Trump has been “keeping his word” on promises he made during their controversial meeting in January.

Mr. Harvey sparked a wave of backlash from the black community in January after he met with Mr. Trump at Trump Tower to discuss affordable housing with now-Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson. The comedian defended the meeting on his radio show at the time, saying “the only way we can heal the divide in this country is through conversation.”

Now, Mr. Harvey said Mr. Trump is making good on his promises to help America’s inner cities.

“As far as doing what he promised me he would do, he is doing it,” he told TMZ  Tuesday. “I’m working with HUD. I’m going to get some housing for underprivileged people. We’re going to set up some centers around the country. I’ve met with HUD. It’s going really well. God willing, it will work out.”

Mr. Harvey said there’s been sufficient follow-up by the administration since their meeting.



“He’s keeping his word to what he said he would do,” he said.

Mr. Harvey was careful not to say he approved of Mr. Trump’s first 100 days in office. He only laughed when asked how he thought the president was doing so far.
