So much for President Donald Trump being racist. It is a constant mantra of the mainstream media and the left desperate to pin any sort of damaging label on the man that he is racist, but the facts say something different, and no less than the founder of the Black Entertainment Network has noticed.
Robert Johnson was speaking in reference to being a lifelong Democrat and not liking the path the party is taking.
‘You’ve got to give the president an A-plus for that,’ he said.
I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large amount of Americans,’ Johnson explained.
‘I think the tax cuts clearly helped stimulate the economy. I think businesspeople have a little bit more more confidence in the way the economy is going, and I think it’s beginning to have some impact globally.’
Saying America has a ‘great’ economy, Johnson said prosperity under Trump is ‘reaching populations that heretofore had very bad problems in terms of jobs and employments and the opportunities that come with employment.’
He also noted that ‘African-American unemployment is at its lowest level. Hispanic unemployment. Women.’
This is the sort of news that has been defying the racism narrative for over two years. How it is that Americans are still falling for the line that Trump is anything but a lover of all good people is confounding.
That does not mean that Johnson will be campaigning for the president’s re-election. He’s still a Democrat and wants a centrist Democrat in the White House.
‘The party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left,’ Robert Johnson told CNBC on Tuesday.
‘And for that reason, I don’t have a particular candidate in the party [to support] at this time,’ he said. ‘I think at the end of the day, if a Democrat is going to beat Trump then that person, he or she, will have to move to the center – and you can’t wait too long to do that.’
Oh, well. Baby steps.
