BET Founder Robert Johnson Says President Trump’s Economy is Bringing Black Workers Back into the Labor Force
MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN …
BET Founder Robert Johnson says that President Trump’s economy is good for blacks as it is bring them back into the work force. This if the LEFT’s and Democrats worst nightmare. These are words coming from a black Democrat. When black America finally figures it out that Trump is working for them and not what the liberal media has reported, you might just see more and more blacks supporting and voting for him.
The growing U.S. economy and improving business environment is bringing black workers back into the labor force, BET founder Robert Johnson told CNBC on Friday.
Johnson, the nation’s first black billionaire, spoke before Friday’s jobs report, which showed nonfarm payrolls rose 103,000 in March, falling well short of the 193,000 gain economist were expecting.
In January, the Labor Department reported the unemployment rate among black workers was at its lowest since at least the early 1970s, when the government began tracking the data. The unemployment rate for black Americans spiked in January and then fell in February. The rate was unchanged in March at 6.9 percent.
“When you look at that [January report], you have to say something is going right,” said Johnson, a Democrat and founder and chairman of The RLJ Cos.
“You have to take encouragement from what’s happening in the labor force and the job market,” Johnson told “Squawk Box.” “When you look at African-American unemployment, … you’ve never had African-American unemployment this low and the spread between African-Americans and whites narrowing.”
