Diddy offered his thoughts on the 2016 presidential election during an appearance on Rev. Al Sharpton’s MSNBC program. Diddy expressed disappointment with President Obama for not addressing the needs of the black community.
“We put President Obama in the White House,” he said. “When I look back, I just wanted more done for my people because that’s the name of the game. This is politics. You put somebody in office, you get in return the things you care about for your community. I think we got a little bit shortchanged. That’s not knocking the president. There’s a lot going on.”
Diddy acknowledged Obama doing an “excellent job,” but says it’s time for the black community to “turn up the heat” because their vote will determine the next president of the United States.
“Hilary Clinton, I hope she starts to directly talk to the black community,” he said. “It makes me feel almost hurt that our issues are not addressed, and we’re such a big part of the voting bloc. I honestly think that heat has to be turned up so much that as a community we gotta hold our vote. Don’t pacify yourself. Really revolutionize the game. Make them come for our vote. It’s a whole different strategy, but I think we have to hold our vote because I don’t believe any of them.”
