Sean Combs, also known by his stage names Puff Daddy, Puffy, Diddy and P. Diddy, believes Barack Obama has ‘shortchanged’ black voters and doesn’t want the African-American community to automatically vote for Hillary Clinton.
Appearing on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation with Al Sharpton, Puff was asked what advice he would give to Trump and Clinton to encourage young people to realize their potential. “I think it is all about education and jobs and creating different programs for them to have opportunities,” he said. “I think that No. 1 they have to pay attention to people. If they don’t, a lot of young people aren’t going to show up.”
He then continued more specifically on the subject of Barack Obama. “I feel like we put President Obama in the White House, and when I look back, I just wanted more done for my people.
“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.”
Combs then added that he wanted to see Clinton “directly engage” with the black community. “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 bloc… The heat has to be turned up so much that as a community we got to hold our vote. Really revolutionize the game. Make them come for our vote.”
