BET co-founder Robert Johnson voted for President Trump and said another 4 years would be good for the black community.
He used the opportunity to take a swipe at Democrats and the Obama administration.
According to The Daily Wire:
Speaking with CNBC, Johnson, who previously signaled he would vote for Trump in the 2020 election, said that Trump’s focus on building the economy and creating jobs strongly benefits the black community.
“I’m not fearful that a Trump reelection is gonna be an assault on the political, cultural, social rights of black Americans,” Johnson said. “It didn’t show up in the past four years in terms of economic opportunity, and so, [to me], I don’t see what the black community has gotten over the past eight years of Democratic leadership.”
“I think black Americans are getting a little bit tired of delivering huge votes for the Democrats and seeing minimal return in terms of economic wealth, closing the wealth gap, job creation, job opportunities,” he said. “And Joe Biden was not an inspiring candidate for many black Americans. And some of them stayed home, some of them voted for Trump.”
“For African Americans, under Trump’s leadership, we have the lowest unemployment rate for black Americans in over 50 years—almost since they’ve been keeping statistics on it. We also saw investments in black businesses and black communities through the Opportunity Zones,” he added.
Johnson has been highly critical of the Democrat party citing the fact that it has largely not delivered on its promises to the black community.
