Robert Johnson, founder of Rlj Cos. and co-founder of Black Entertainment Television (BET), speaks during an executive order signing in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2018.

Speaking on CNBC’s Hadley Gamble, America's first black American billionaire said that the current Democratic Party has no chance of beating President Trump in 2020 and that some serious housecleaning is in order, reports Fox News.

"The party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left," Johnson said, adding that he will not be supporting a particular candidate at this time.

According to Johnson, a Democrat will only be able to take the White House from Donald Trump if they move to the center, otherwise they will propose radical programs that will not resonate with the American people. Since Trump has not lost his base, he posits, the Democrats will have to move beyond the extremism of the primaries if they are to win the general election.
