Al Sharpton got a surprise phone call Thursday morning — from President-elect Donald Trump, THE NY POST reports.
The rabble-rousing preacher, who was convening a meeting of his National Action Network board of directors, said Trump called out of the blue. “We did talk briefly. I was surprised and candid about our sharp disagreements and so was he,” Sharpton said.
A sharp Trump critic during the campaign, Sharpton said it’s important to have a dialogue with political foes to try to find common ground. “He met with Mayor de Blasio who is critical, like I am, of him,” he said.
