Donald Trump recently held a meeting at the White House with leaders from historically black colleges. He has repeatedly stated that he intends to be the President for all the American people so it makes sense.
Trump is clearly trying to build a positive relationship with historically black schools.
The Washington Times reports:
Trump to sign order supporting historically black colleges
President Trump will sign an executive order Tuesday aimed at boosting his administration’s support for historically black colleges, as he seeks a closer relationship with the schools than former President Barack Obama had.
The president is signing a measure that will move the government’s program for promoting historically black colleges and universities, called HBCUs, from the Education Department to direct oversight by the White House.
A senior White House official said Mr. Trump wants to “make HBCUs a priority again.” One goal will be to promote the schools as “strategic partners” in the president’s plan to improve inner cities, the official said.
The president held a meeting in the Oval Office Monday with representatives of more than 60 schools; they also met with Vice President Mike Pence and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
Here’s a picture of all the leaders with Trump:

He’s very smart to develop friendships like these.
