Um, What? Sounds Like Diddy Said He's Considering Voting For Trump

Um, What? Sounds Like Diddy Said He's Considering Voting For Trump

His reason for possibly supporting the Republican candidate will make you cringe.

Published October 2, 2016

Don't do it, Diddy. For the love of God.

The Bad Boy boss caused alarm in a recent interview for sounding like he's on the fence about voting for Donald Trump, who he refers to as "a friend of mine." If true, that would make Puff the highest profile celebrity to support the Republican candidate, joining the likes of Stacey Dash, Scott Baio and Omarosa.

At the launch of his new Sean John cologne at Macy's in New York City, Diddy told a reporter, “I always liked Donald’s style.” He continued, “I do have a tie he gifted me. I wear it."

Then, the bombshell: “As far as voting for him, that has yet to be seen.”

We can only pray that Diddy, who has a stellar record when it comes to pro-Black issues, was being sarcastic when making the comment. But it can't be ignored that the Bad Boy CEO and Trump have a long history of friendship. Just last year, he said to the Washington Post of Trump, “Donald Trump is a friend of mine, and he works very hard." 

We'll be looking for a comment from Diddy to clarify his stance.
