Sean Diddy Coombs says Barack Obama shortchanged Black People

Sean 'Diddy' Coombs has said Barack Obama has 'shortchanged' black voters and doesn't want the African-American community to automatically vote for Hillary Clinton. He was on the show discussing the opening of his charter school in Harlem, New York City, but he quickly moved on to presidential politics.

The rapper told Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC he wanted more done for 'his people', as he feels they put Obama in the White House.

He told Sharpton: '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. 

'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. There's a lot going on, 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.'
