Despite the fact that the KKK endorsed him and he’s filling up his cabinet with noted racists and white nationalists, Black Entertainment Television founder Bob Johnson still thinks black people should give Donald Trump a shot.
The Democratic media magnate said he was invited by Trump for a sit-down meeting on Sunday about how he can better reach out to the African-American community. Johnson told CNBC on Monday that the president-elect was more than open to discussing what his administration can do for the community and the issues he believes are important.
The two billionaires steered clear of politics, and instead focused on business solutions and social problems. “President-elect Trump is a business guy, and I think he’s going to tilt towards finding the way to use fiscal policy and his own knowledge as a business guy to move the economy forward for jobs and economy growth,” Johnson said.
