Robert Johnson, founder of the influential Black Entertainment Television, has recently criticized the Democrat Party for its move towards socialism and praised President Trump’s success in the economy. The Daily Caller reports:
Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder Robert Johnson on Tuesday gave an “A+” to President Donald Trump’s fiscal record and failed the Democrats for moving “too far to the left,” he said.
Johnson was also critical of the increasingly bitter political rivalry in America, which he called “very wicked and very mean.” But the Democratic Party that he has traditionally supported has become too left-wing for his opinions, he told CNBC.
“The party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left,” Johnson said.
Many Democratic presidential candidates have adopted radical climate change programs, pushed “Medicare for All” and touted free college education.
Support from African-American men for Trump has seen a large increase, partly due to Democrats leaning further to the Left on social issues and their support for open borders that depresses wages.
