Robert Johnson, founder of Black Entertainment Television (BET), has suggested that he will vote for President Trump over Joe Biden. However, “he stopped short of offering an endorsement,” Fox News reported.
According to Johnson, he couldn’t say who “won” the presidential debate on Tuesday night. However, he said the American people “lost.”
“It was a waste of an hour and a half that gave no guidance, no direction at all as to where the country will go after this election… Where I come out as a businessman, I will take the devil I know over the devil I don’t know any time of the week. And that seems to be what business people are confronting today,” Johnson said.

When asked by CNBC anchor Rebecca Quick if he is endorsing Trump, Johnson responded, “I’m not endorsing anybody.”
“What I’m saying is if I’m a businessperson, what you want more than anything else, particularly coming out of something as horrible as this pandemic… the more you know about who will be pulling the lever of economic growth, economic development, taxes, stimulus, regulation. In my opinion, you’re better off dealing with somebody you know where they’re gonna be than somebody you really have no idea what decisions they will make at such a critical time.”
The BET founder added that he “absolutely” does not know what Biden will do. “I haven’t heard anything coherent out of what he said he would do.”
He knows what the president “has done and what he’s said he will do,” Johnson mentioned. He also added that he doesn’t know what Biden promises to do “other than masks, listen to the scientists.”
CNBC explained that Johnson has been a Democratic donor for years. However, he has also spoken positively about the president’s economic policy.
