WATCH: Black man explains why he voted for Trump

The Left wants everyone to think that President Trump hates all “people of color” …and that all “people of color” should hate Donald Trump.

It’s interesting, then, that some of the most successful “people of color” are the first to STAND UP for our President.

Why? Because freethinkers see through the bullcrap.

Robert L. Johnson, America’s first black billionaire, and founder of BET is speaking out against the Democrats… and praising Trump’s economy.

According to Daily Wire:

Speaking on CNBC’s Hadley Gamble, America’s first black American billionaire said that the current Democratic Party has no chance of beating President Trump in 2020 and that some serious housecleaning is in order, reports Fox News.

“The party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left,” Johnson said, adding that he will not be supporting a particular candidate at this time.

For him personally… and for anyone with even a SHRED of common sense.

The party has gone completely and totally off the rails.

According to Johnson, a Democrat will only be able to take the White House from Donald Trump if they move to the center, otherwise they will propose radical programs that will not resonate with the American people. Since Trump has not lost his base, he posits, the Democrats will have to move beyond the extremism of the primaries if they are to win the general election.

“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,” he said. “The message of some of the programs that Democrats are pushing are not resonating with the majority of the American people.”

You mean like decriminalizing illegal immigration, giving illegal aliens health insurance, making taxpayers pay for other people’s student debt, and reparations?

Yeah. We’re not huge fans.

It’s worth noting that Johnson is a longtime Democrat, and in fact supported Hillary in 2016… but he’s giving credit where credit is due.

The longtime Democrat supported Hillary Clinton’s candidacy in 2016. However, he did praise Donald Trump for helping to make the economy great, specifically for black Americans. Contrary to the doomsday predictions of Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Johnson said the tax cuts largely resulted in this prosperity.

“I think the economy is doing great, and it’s particularly reaching populations that heretofore had very bad problems in terms of jobs and employments and the opportunities that come with employment,” Johnson said. “African-American unemployment is at its lowest level… I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large amount of Americans.”

“I think business people have more confidence in the way the economy is going,” he continued. “If business people are concerned about anything, it’s the clear, clear partisan politics that’s become very wicked and very mean.”

So refreshing to hear a Democrat talk some common sense.

Maybe he’ll go all the way and leave the party once and for all.
