• BET Founder Admits: Trump’s Getting It Done for the American People

    Another public figure and rare voice of moderation has piped up from Democratic ranks, attempting to summon his party back from the heedlessly, recklessly extremist brink.

    Over at The Blaze, Aaron Colen shares,

    [D]uring a recent interview with CNBC’s Hadley Gamble … Robert Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television and the first black American billionaire, said the Democratic Party has gone too far left, according to CNBC.

    “The party in my opinion … has moved too far to the left. … [F]or that reason, I don’t have a particular candidate … in the party at this time. [I]f a Democrat is going to beat Trump, … he or she, will have to move to the center and you can’t wait too long to do that.”

    Johnson, who was a 2016 supporter of Hillary Clinton, acknowledges Donald Trump’s economic successes thus far. His grade for the Republican president vis-à-vis the economy?  “A+”.

    “I think the economy is doing great, and it’s reaching populations that heretofore had very bad problems in terms of jobs and employments and the opportunities that come with employment … so African-American unemployment is at its lowest level, ” Johnson said.

    Whew … someone with a passel of Dem cred needed to come along, set aside his partisan loyalties and enunciate the obvious. Johnson fits that bill.

    “I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large amount of Americans. … I think the tax cuts clearly helped stimulate the economy. I think business people have more confidence in the way the economy is going.”

    Again, more articulating what’s transparently true.

    At this early stage in the Democratic primary, Johnson hasn’t settled on whom he’ll back out of this cycle’s group of Democrats. He does, however, think he has a bead on what the American people are looking for.

    “At the end of the day, the American people are looking for someone who can deliver economically and deliver on opportunities.”
