As expected, Twitter users could not resist reacting to this sudden visit. One person wrote, “I understand business and technology, but black empowerment? Why would a white man want to empower black folks?” “I can't get over how boring this presidency is. I miss the days when the USA was making moves nonstop. You'll remember that? Trump made it exciting to get up in the morning. It was like, "Ok, what is the USA accomplishing today". Miss those days,” another person wrote.

Online trolling aside, Trump and Ray J have a follow-up meeting already scheduled to put into action many of the ideas that were discussed at the meeting. Ray J, 41, is believed to have political aspirations and is likely to consider running for office one day. In an interview ahead of the 2020 election, he told Variety,
“It’s definitely a different kind of election coming up. It’s something very original with this one. The choices people have to pick from… we’ll see. It’s just a different dynamic now, but all for the greater good.” He added, “I just figure we need to stick with trying to fix what’s broken in America, like the bigger topics of things. Try to really put our focus on change and helping people, and really try to do good for the country.”
