As the 2016 presidential election draws near, celebs across the country have been opening up about which candidate they want to see take the Oval Office. And while most are already settled on whether they’ll vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, Diddy recently revealed that he’s on the fence about whether he’ll cast his vote for Trump or not.
According to news reports,spoke about President Obama’s eight years in office and explained that he felt like Obama didn’t give the Black community everything he promised.
“My number one thing, though, to be honest, is Black people. I feel like we put President Obama in the White House. When I look back, I just wanted more done for my people because that’s the name of the game,” Diddy said.
“This is politics. You put somebody in office you get in return the things that you care about for your communities. I think we got a little bit shortchanged. That’s not knocking the president, he’s done an excellent job, you know, but I think it’s time to turn up the heat because the black vote is going to decide who is the next president of the United States,” Diddy said.
Diddy also spoke about Democratic candidate Clinton and explained that he was disappointed in her attempts to speak to the Black community about her plans for making changes.
“Hillary Clinton, you know, I hope she starts to directly talk to the Black community. … It really makes me feel, you know, almost hurt that our issues are not addressed and we’re such a big part of the voting block,” Diddy said.
In another interview, Diddy opened up about Clinton’s rival, Republican nominee Trump, and explained that they’re friends.
