Entertainer and entrepreneur Sean “Diddy” Combs said black voters should make Hillary Clinton earn their votes. His remarks came the day after Trump visited a black church in Detroit, where the congregation gave him a standing ovation.
Trump has strong ties with African-Americans in sports and entertainment. Combs made his remarks on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show. Sharpton, too, has worked and socialized with Trump.
“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 told Sharpton on the latter’s MSNBC show PoliticsNation on Sunday.
“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,” the 46-year-old mogul continued. “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.”Black people make up one-fourth of the Democratic Party and maybe one percent of the Republican. Electing Obama was a nice milestone, but eight years later, a few black people are wondering if they should shop around when it comes to presidential candidates.
That bodes well for everyone.
Except Hillary, of course.
