TNT “Inside the NBA” co-host Ernie Johnson shared a message Thursday night in hopes to unite everyone behind President-Elect Donald Trump.
Johnson, who admitted he did not support Trump or Hillary Clinton, said he was “encouraged” by the meeting between Trump and President Barack Obama. Johnson also added he hopes Obama’s successor is “all in” on “fixing the wounds of this country” because he wants to be a part of that himself.
Partial transcript as follows:
I’m hopeful. I watched the video today on CNN of what was going on at the White House with Donald Trump and President Obama. I was hopeful and I was encouraged that there will be a difference between the President Trump and the campaigning Trump. And I’m with these guys, we have to give him a chance. But here’s the deal, I just hope he’s all in — in fixing the wounds in this country and the divides that separate this country. And I want to be part of that. too. And for me to part of it, I have to look in the mirror and say, “How am I going to be a better man? How am I going to be a better neighbor? How am I going to be a better citizen? How am I going to be a better American? How can I be a fountain and not a drain?”
