NFL legends Jim Brown and Ray Lewis were among the visitors to Trump Tower on Tuesday to see President-Elect Donald Trump.
Brown, the former Cleveland Browns running back who has since become a social activist, told reporters the meeting “couldn’t have been better,” adding, “The graciousness, the intelligence, the reception we got was fantastic.”
Lewis, a long-time Ravens linebacker who is now an ESPN analyst, said the meeting was about urban development and job creation through Brown's Amer-I-Can foundation.
“What we believe with the Trump administration is if we can combine these two powers, of coming together, forget black or white. Black or white is irrelevant," Lewis said.
"The bottom line is job creation, economic development in these urban neighborhoods to change the whole scheme of what our kids see for our future."
Asked if he voted for Trump, Brown replied, “No, I did not,” then added, “I’ve been given respect. I’ve been listened to, and we definitely have a partnership.”
