NEW YORK CITY, NY – Sean “Diddy” Combs has had his hand in politics for a number of years, most notably dating back to his vigilance for the Rock the Vote campaign during the 2004 presidential election, where he interviewed a relatively unknown Illinois Senator who would go to make history inside the White House.
However, more than a decade later, the 46-year-old music mogul’s opinion on President Obama’s tenure as commander-in-chief isn’t exactly dipped in bronze. While speaking to Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s Politics Nation earlier today, he expressed how he felt the black community didn’t get all they hoped for during the election years.
“My number one thing, though, to be honest, is black people,” Diddy admitted, who had originally joined the segment discussing his new Harlem charter school before the topic switched to the upcoming presidential election. “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. This is politics. You put somebody in office you get in return the things that you care about for your communities.”
