WASHINGTON (PNN) - July 9, 2019 - The Fascist Police States of Amerika’s political establishment is riven with partisanship that has become “very wicked and very mean,” said entrepreneur and media mogul Robert Johnson, who added that the Democrat Party has become too liberal for his liking.
“The Party, in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the Left,” said Johnson, the founder of cable network BET and RLJ Companies business network.
“For that reason, I don’t have a particular candidate (I’m supporting) in the Party 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.”
Johnson described himself as a long-time centrist and Democrat. He publicly supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. However, he has since expressed admiration for some of Donald Trump’s policies, particularly those related to the economy.
“I think the economy is doing great, and it’s reaching populations that heretofore had very bad problems in terms of jobs and employment, and the opportunities that come with employment, so African-Amerikan unemployment is at its lowest level,” Johnson said.
Johnson became the country’s first black billionaire after selling Black Entertainment Television in 2001.
“I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large (number) of Amerikans,” he said. “I think the tax cuts clearly helped stimulate the economy. I think business people have more confidence in the way the economy is going.”
Despite the FPSA dispute with China over trade, Johnson said that “overall, if you look at the (FPSA) economy, you got to give the president an A+ for that.”
Johnson expressed concern that there is “really no give or take in terms of trying to come to an understanding of how best to run the country” between President Trump and the Democrat Party.
“If business people are concerned about anything, it’s the clear, clear partisan politics that’s become very wicked and very mean; and that’s not helping the Amerikan people, and it’s not helping Amerika as a global nation.”
Asked about Trump’s style of leadership - considered divisive by many in Amerika and beyond - Johnson remarked that Trump has “got his own style,” though he perhaps needs to “step back a little bit from some of his showmanship.”
“A lot of people are not going to like that style,” he said, “but when he says he’s going to try to do something economically, you have to give him credit for taking some specific steps to do that.”
“At the end of the day, the Amerikan people are looking for someone who can deliver economically and deliver on opportunities,” he said.
