Former NFL Stars Jim Brown And Ray Lewis Meet The President-Elect At Trump Tower
Former NFL greats Jim Brown and Ray Lewis visited Trump Tower in Manhattan on Tuesday to meet with the president-elect.
Brown, a longtime Cleveland Browns full back, actor and TV sportscaster, entered the building with Cleveland Pastor Darrell Scott. The two were met by one of Trump’s transition advisors, Omarosa Manigault.
Brown co-founded the Amer-I-Can program in 1988, which seeks “to empower individuals to take charge of their lives and achieve their full potential.” Pastor Scott informed pool reporters they planned to discuss the program with President-elect Trump.
“The program goal is to help enable individuals to meet their academic potential, to conform their behavior to acceptable society standards, and to improve the quality of their lives by equipping them with the critical life management skills to confidently and successfully contribute to society,” the program website states.
Soon after Brown and Pastor Scott arrived, former Baltimore Ravens linebacker and sportscaster Ray Lewis entered the building. He was also met by Manigault upon arriving, but the reason for his meeting was not announced.
