BET Co-Founder Praises Trump For Economy, Credits Tax Cuts For Low Black Unemployment


ㅤ”Black Entertainment Network co-founder Robert Johnson on Friday praised President Donald Trump for the current economic boom, specifically lauding the GOP tax cuts as a catalyst for employment of black Americans.
ㅤ’You’ve never seen African-American unemployment this low and the spread between African-Americans and whites narrowing,’ Johnson said during a CNBC interview on Friday. In December, unemployment for blacks reached the lowest percentage (6.8%) in its recorded history.
ㅤ’Business is very good,’ Johnson said when asked about the economy by ‘Squawk Box’ co-host Jor Kernen.
ㅤ’I believe that if you take into account the Trump tax cut, you take into account the drop in unemployment and particularly unemployment for African-Americans, it’s the lowest it’s ever been in history. And you take into account the fact that interest rates are fairly stable, they will probably drift up, but so far,’ he said.
ㅤ’And I think the business community is committed to reinvest capital that they get from some of the tax advantages and that as a result of that, I think the economy is going to grow.'”
