Cleveland pastor Darrell Scott wants President Donald Trump to host black artists and athletes at the White House for a dialogue about race, Politico reports.

"It's going to be unscripted, unfiltered, blunt," said Scott, who is set to meet with the president Thursday. "No topic is off the table."

The idea has garnered interest following Kanye West's statements last week about his public support for Trump.

Scott is organizing the effort with Andrew Giuliani, the son of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and an aide in the White House Office of Public Liaison. The organizers are considering two summits: one for athletes sometime between mid-June and late July and one for artists sooner.

Trump last week praised West after the rapper's tweet.

"I get along with a lot of people, frankly," the president said. "Kanye looks and he sees black unemployment at the lowest it's been in the history of our country, OK? He sees Hispanic unemployment at the lowest it's been in the history of our country. He sees, by the way, female employment the lowest it's been in almost 19 years."

"He sees that stuff and he's smart," the real estate magnate continued. "He says, 'Trump is doing a much better job than the Democrats did.'"
