BET Founder Robert Johnson Praises President Trump for Economy

‘I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction’


JOHNSON: "Well, I think the economy is doing absolutely great. And it’s particularly reaching into populations that heretofore have had very bad problems in terms of jobs employment and the opportunities that come with full employment. So African-American unemployment is at its lowest level, Hispanic unemployment, women. So I give President Trump, and I said this before on 'Squawk Box' I give the President a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large number of Americans. I think the tax cuts clearly helped stimulate the economy. I think business people have a little bit more confidence in the way the economy is going. And I think it’s beginning to have some impact globally. We still have some issues to deal with with the China trade negotiation issue, but overall, if you look at the U.S. economy and you look at the number of people who are no longer looking for jobs but now are sort of seeing the opportunities for job growth, you've got to give the President an A+ for that."
