Scott, a co-founder of President Trump’s National Diversity Coalition who is African-American, was one of nearly 20 inner city pastors and faith leaders attending the meeting, where lawmakers were also present.

“This is probably the most pro-active administration regarding urban America and the faith-based community in my lifetime,” Scott said, according to a White House transcript of the meeting.

“This president actually wants to prove something to our community, our faith-based community and our ethnic community,” he added. “This is probably going to be… the most pro-black president I’ve seen in my lifetime.”
