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.”
