After Barack Obama destroyed race relations and the liberal left ran a campaign of lies, feeding a false narrative about a bigoted Donald Trump to minorities, the now-President-elect has his work cut out for him. To heal the divide, Trump is meeting with leaders in the black community, including legendary football great Jim Brown, who shocked many with his description of the encounter — and it only took 6 words.
Trump has been meeting with African-American leaders at Trump Tower in New York city this week to discuss issues facing the black community. Those leaders included football great Jim Brown, The Gateway Pundit reports. With Brown being a known Hillary Clinton supporter, many were anxious to hear what he’d say about his meeting with Trump, but it’s safe to say, a lot of leftists aren’t going to like his words one bit.

Jim Brown’s description of the encounter was full of positive things, even going as far as to call Trump “my president” and say that Trump not only received his admiration but also “I fell in love with him.” As an activist for minorities and the inner cities for decades, who admits to voting for the Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, Brown’s comments about Trump are sure to surprise many — especially those who continue to push the racist rhetoric.

Although Brown is well-known as a 1971 inductee into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and eight-time NFL rushing leader, his work off the field has gained him accolades as well. Not only has he been an activist, working in the African-American community for decades, he also designed his Amer-I-Can program to “empower individuals to take charge of their lives and achieve their full potential.”
However, it’s not all about race and skin color for Brown. In fact, it seems to be just the opposite. To the surprise of many, Brown revealed a little-known secret in his interview on CNN. “The three greatest people in my life were white, OK. My high school coach, my high school superintendent, and my mentor in Manhasset, Long Island,” he said, adding that his work focuses on the human race above all.
“When I come out of the box, I don’t come out of the box as racial,” he said. “I look for good people and people that will be like-minded and help me try to do good for other human beings.” He added that he left the meeting with Trump, which included Pastor Darrell Scott, with a heart-warming sense of positivity, CNN reports. “I can’t speak for the pastor, but I fell in love with him, because he really talks about helping African-American, black people and uh that’s why I’m here.”
When CNN’s Brooke Baldwin shockingly questioned, “You fell in love with Donald Trump today,” Brown responded, “It isn’t really about just Donald Trump, it’s about him and the position he occupies,” explaining that the position of president is the most important and powerful person in the world.
“When he goes through what he went through to become the president, he got my admiration,” Brown explained. “No one gave him a chance.“
Brown then spoke of how Trump doesn’t hold grudges but also “listens to people” who opposed him so vigorously, adding he’ll always remember the reception he received from Trump during their meeting “because he listened to us and he knows that we can bring something to him to help the people of this country.”
Jim Brown was amazed at how Trump “held no grudges” and listens to ppl who opposed him so vigorously. That’s how you win people over, folks.

When one meeting can leave such an impression on a black man after the media and liberal leftists everywhere pounded the lie that Donald Trump was racist against minorities, it speaks volumes to Donald Trump’s character. You can’t fake the level of care and concern that he must have displayed to touch his opposition in such a way. In fact, when Jim Brown also appeared on the Sean Hannity Show on Fox to speak about his meeting with Trump, he boldly declared, “[Trump] is not a phony.”
Words like admiration and even love don’t often get thrown around lightly, especially by public figures in the spotlight while on a network that was so known to be pro-Hillary that it was dubbed the Clinton News Network throughout her campaign. I don’t think Jim Brown is a man who is so easily impressed, but Trump won him over. Hopefully, President-elect Trump can continue to change the minds of his opposition, like he did with Jim Brown, healing our nation from the racial tensions that have been created over the last 8 years and making America great again.
