A Philadelphia Eagles star-turned-preacher says conservative African Americans who support President-elect Donald Trump are being intimidated by liberal blacks.
The Rev. Herb Lusk — a running back with the Eagles from 1976-1978 and now senior pastor of Greater Exodus Baptist Church — told Philadelphia Daily News columnist Jenice Armstrong:
"I read something recently where they said they were going to take Steve Harvey's black card. Steve Harvey is as black as they come. He's a good man. He's done a lot of good work … Because he meets with Donald Trump, he's now in danger of losing his black card.
"I think that's foolishness and I think it's unfortunate … I don't think the blacks on the left should be so intolerant of blacks who may have some right views … I'm not a Donald Trump supporter. I don't speak for Donald Trump. I don't know him. I've never met him.
“But he's my president and I've prayed for every president since I've been a pastor. Every day, I pray for the president of the United States of America and I will be praying for this president. The man hasn't even taken office yet. Let's see what he's going to do."
