President Donald Trump, who is heading to Dallas Thursday to hold further talks with faith leaders, law enforcement, and small business owners, is convening such sessions to work toward a strategy on race and equality that will benefit the whole country, Scott Turner, the executive director of the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council, said Thursday. 

"I think it's vital that we do this so we as servant leaders hear the heartbeat and hear the concerns of the community from all across every sector of our community," Turner said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "In the huddle, there are all different personalities, there are all different people, but there is one common goal and that's what we need to do here in America and in our community is come together with a strategy that benefits the entire country."

Turner said he also believes Republicans should be thinking about solutions to disparities in healthcare, education, and economic development. It really should be "all parties coming together, because these solutions don't just impact minorities, but the whole country," he said. 

"Poverty does not have a party," he said. "Poverty doesn't have a color. It affects all of us, either directly or indirectly, so as we concentrate on these disparities inside of the stressed communities as it pertains to law enforcement, as it pertains to healthcare and education and business, we have layers of focus inside these communities."
