BET Founder Bob Johnson Asks African-Americans To Give Donald Trump A Chance

"Trump is a business guy, and I think he's going to tilt towards finding [a] way to use fiscal policy...to move the economy forward," he told CNBC in an interview Monday. "Let's give him a shot. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt; see if we can find common ground." Subscribe to our daily newsletter for the latest in hair, beauty, style and celebrity news. "That's what's best for African-Americans," Johnson added. To be clear, he supported Hillary Clinton’s bid for the presidency. Paraphrasing Congressional Black Caucus member Rep. Bill Clay Sr, Johnson said, "Black Americans should have no permanent friends, and no permanent enemies, just permanent interests."

Is BET founder Bob Johnson selling out black folks? Or does he see something in Donald Trump that minorities are missing?  It’s really hard to tell someone to give a person a chance that has willfully segregated America during the election process and now can’t control the white supremacists that he has unleashed against some of America’s most vulnerable people.

His Monochromatic staff and his narcissistic behaviour have turned so many people off, so trusting him is proving to be rather difficult.

See what Essence has reported.

BET founder Bob Johnson is telling black folks to give Donald Trump “the benefit of the doubt” after meeting with the President-Elect at his Trump National Gold Club in New Jersey this past weekend.

“Trump is a business guy, and I think he’s going to tilt towards finding [a] way to use fiscal policy…to move the economy forward,” he told CNBC in an interview Monday. “Let’s give him a shot. Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt; see if we can find common ground.”

“That’s what’s best for African-Americans,” Johnson added. To be clear, he supported Hillary Clinton’s bid for the presidency.

Paraphrasing Congressional Black Caucus member Rep. Bill Clay Sr, Johnson said, “Black Americans should have no permanent friends, and no permanent enemies, just permanent interests.”

    Throughout history there have always been black people that come forth to lead other black people to slaughter, like Omorosa, Armstrong Williams–who pushed to get Thomas Clarence on the Supreme Court–Herman Cain, Ben Carson, and even Booker T. Washington, and there are plenty more.

    Fall for their push and you will wake up with regret. If you follow history, when Ronald Regan screamed ‘we are going to take back the country’ he won by a landslide. He went on a mission to destroy the black community on behalf of his constituents.Trump has revealed his true colors from the beginning of his campaign, and has said nothing positive about the black community and white people love it.

    For Bob Johnson to even dare guide black people to give Trump a chance is complete BULL SHIT! Do not let your guard down. With republicans in full control of the House and Senate and Trump who enticed and catered his message to white nationalists – every black person needs to watch their back, not let their guard down.
