BET Founder Robert Johnson Sticking With Trump: Debate Was "Waste Of Time," But "I Will Take The Devil I Know"

|

BET founder Robert Johnson told CNBC that the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden this week was like a "schoolyard fight" and he did not learn anything from it. He did not outright endorse President Trump, but said as a businessman he is "more comfortable with the devil I know."

"I can't tell you who won, but I can tell you who lost -- the American people."

"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," he said about the debate.


"Where I come out as a businessman, I will take the devil I know over the devil I don’t know anytime of the week," he said about Mr. Trump. "I would rather know who I’m going to deal with in the White House. I’m going to know what regulatory decisions they’re going to make."

"I know what President Trump has done and what he’s said he will do. I don’t know what Vice President Biden has said he will do other than masks, listen to the scientists," he also said.
