Diddy: ‘We Don’t Really Give A F**k About Trump’

Sean “Diddy” Combs said black people “don’t really give a fuck about” President Donald Trump because they’re more worried about what’s happening in their own lives.

“Politically, the way my mind is thinking–I ain’t with no marching,” the 47-year-old rapper said in a interview published Thursday by The Daily Beast. (RELATED: Kate Upton May Or May Not Be Dating Sean Combs)

“If I come in the battlefield, I wanna be coming in the battlefield really ready,” he added. “Also, honestly, that’s why you haven’t really seen me show up on certain things. I think that to be honest, we don’t really give a fuck about Trump, because [black people are] in the same fucked-up position.”

“So that’s not what we’re on,” he continued. “The tomfoolery that’s going on in D.C., that’s just regular everyday business to black folks. That’s not surprising.”

“We’re turning CNN and all that shit off because we’re trying to get ourselves together,” Diddy explained. “That’s what I’m about. I’m like, ‘Turn that shit off, let them deal with all that shit. We gotta start dealing with us.’ So my thing is, I gotta keep showing the dream. I gotta keep magnifying that and keep it focused on that self-love that we need to give our race.”

“Nobody’s sending rescue parties to us, they’re not dropping food or aid, so it’s time we got busy and figured this thing out,” he added. “Wherever we can find our wealth from, we gotta find it. It’ll be on us to change things. Not just entertainers, but anybody getting wealth has to come back and try to make change in the community. Because ain’t nobody gonna do this but us.”
