President Donald Trump has approved a White House summit to discuss race and has invited Colin Kaepernick and Kanye West, a pastor who met with Trump told People magazine.

Football great Jim Brown and legendary boxer Mike Tyson also will be on the guest list, according to the Rev. Darrell Scott, a White House outside adviser who said he spoke to Trump in the Oval Office Thursday during an event for the National Day of Prayer.

Scott said the president was committed to the multiracial gathering, which will include musicians and athletes in perhaps early summer.


Scott is organizing the summit with Andrew Giuliani, a top aide in the White House Office of Public Liason and son of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, reported Politico, which described plans for the race conference as preliminary.


Asked to comment on the summit report, a rep for Kaepernick told HuffPost on Friday: “Colin isn’t doing any media at this time.”
