“The party in my opinion, for me personally, has moved too far to the left,” Johnson told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble.
“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.”
“The message of some of the programs that Democrats are pushing are not resonating with the majority of the American people,” he added.
Johnson also praised the president for improving the economy.

“I think the economy is doing great, and it’s particularly reaching populations that heretofore had very bad problems in terms of jobs and employments and the opportunities that come with employment,” Johnson said. “African-American unemployment is at its lowest level… I give the president a lot of credit for moving the economy in a positive direction that’s benefiting a large amount of Americans.”
Although he supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, Johnson — the country’s first Black billionaire — isn’t sure who he will support out of the group of Democrats running for the 2020 presidency.
“At the end of the day, the American people are looking for someone who can deliver economically and deliver on opportunities,” he said.
While the gives Trump an A+ for the economy, Johnson also noted that the president’s divisive politics are “not helping America as a global nation.”
“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.”
