Up Next On the Trump Towers Visit List: Jim Brown & Ray Lewis
Kanye West may have turned the Internet on its head this morning with his visit to Trump Towers. Now it looks like former members of the NFL are also meeting with President Elect Trump.
According to a pool report, at 10:34, Darrell Scott, a Cleveland pastor and Trump supporter, walked into Trump Tower with Jim Brown, the Cleveland Browns football great, actor, and TV sportscaster. In 1988, Brown co-founded a program called Amer-I-Can, which helps young people caught up in gang violence by teaching them life skills. Pastor Scott told pool reporters they planned to discuss the program with PETOUS.
They were met by Trump adviser, Omarosa Manigault.
Brown, who recently received the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award from Sports Illustrated, has been applauded for years for his work in our communities. Brown founded the Black Economic Union after his retirement to promote economic development in Black communities in addition to the Amer-I-Can program. He has also dedicated his life to combating violence and gang culture in inner cities.
Shortly after 11 a.m., Ray Lewis, the former Baltimore Raves linebacker and sportscaster walked in to Trump Towers, also escorted by Omarosa. Lewis, also passionate about the youth, spoke out earlier this year on gun violence. Both players are known for being outspoken on issues that plague Black communities and for finding solutions.
What will these two infamous NFL players have for Trump? Only time will tell.
