#NeverForget: Here's How Steve Harvey's Infamous Trump Visit Is Still Affecting His Career

The talk show host expresses his biggest regret.

Published October 31, 2017

Steve Harvey is still suffering the consequences from that now infamous visit with President Donald Trump at the top of the year, and, based on new reports, his pockets are being hit the hardest.

According to the Daily Mail, several of Harvey's business ventures are tanking as a result of the highly publicized and heavily scrutinized visit, including his self-titled talk show, his game show Family Feud and his most recent series, Little Big Shots.

The site reports that the ratings for each program dropped exponentially since his visit to Trump Tower, with half the audience for Little Big Shots, specifically, vanishing. His talk show, in its beginning stages, boasted a 2.2 in ratings, and his new show, Steve, had a 1.8. However, after the visit, his ratings fell to a somber 1.2.

It seems as if Harvey even has some major regrets regarding the visit. He recently explained on his radio show that he wishes he never did it.

"Meeting with Donald Trump was the worst mistake of my life," he said.

A source close to the production of Harvey's talk show explained that "people just hate the show... People just aren't into it at all."
