Bob Johnson, the founder of BET publicly praised President Trump - grading him an A+ for his performance so far.

"I think the economy is doing great, and it's reaching populations that heretofore had very bad problems in terms of jobs and employment and the opportunities that come with employment … so African-American unemployment is at its lowest level," he told CNBC.

"I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that's benefiting a large amount of Americans," he said. "I think the tax cuts clearly helped stimulate the economy. I think business people have more confidence in the way the economy is going."

Johnson added: "Overall, if you look at the U.S. economy … you got to give the president an A+ for that."

Johnson owned BET until it was acquired by Viacom back in 2001.

Would y 'all give Trump an A+?
