BET founder Robert Johnson: No 2020 Democrat is ‘capable of beating Trump’
BET founder Robert Johnson said the 2020 election is President Trump’s to lose and that no current Democratic presidential candidate is “capable of beating” him.
In an interview with CNBC that aired Friday, Johnson, who described himself as a longtime Democrat, was bullish of the party’s chances of winning the White House in the upcoming election.
“I think the president has always been in a position where it’s his to lose based on his bringing a sort of disruptive force into what would be called political norms,” Johnson said.
He noted that he didn’t believe any of the current 2020 Democratic candidates in the crowded field appear to be “enough in the center.”
“If you take a snapshot today, I don’t think that group is capable of beating Trump despite what the polls say,” Johnson said.

This isn’t the first time Johnson has offered his opinion on this.
Back in July he warned the Democrats they were moving too far left.
Democrats have moved ‘too far to the left,’ says BET network founder Bob Johnson
America’s political establishment is riven with partisanship that has become “very wicked and very mean,” said entrepreneur and media mogul Robert Johnson, who added that the Democratic Party has become too liberal for his liking.
“The party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left,” Johnson, the founder of cable network BET and RLJ Companies business network, told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble Tuesday.
“And for that reason, I don’t have a particular candidate (I’m supporting) in the party at this time,” he said. “I think at the end of the day, if a Democrat is going to beat Trump, then that person, he or she, will have to move to the center and you can’t wait too long to do that.”
He was right then and he is right now.
