Music mogul Diddy won’t gear up for any potential 2020 presidential campaigning anytime soon. The hip-hop icon has dished on the idea of running for head of state and why he wouldn’t make for a good president.
In a new interview, Puffy talked about longtime pal Kanye West’s support for President Donald Trump and discussed himself as leader of the free world.
“Nah, I’m good. I’m good,” Puffy said when asked for his take on Kanye/Trump becoming publicized fans of one another. “I wouldn’t make a good president. I wouldn’t really pass any of the things that you have to pass, but I guess Trump did it . . . But no, I like doing what I’m doing. I don’t know if I could be responsible for the whole country.” (“Jimmy Kimmel Live!”)
Recently, Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian dished on why Kanye has remained super loyal to supporting President Trump.
“He doesn’t necessarily agree with the policies. He likes his, kind of, personality. How he made it to be president when everyone really underestimated him. He’s not political, so he doesn’t really dig deep into what’s going on. I always knew that, and always knew what he meant.” (“Jimmy Kimmel Live!”)
Back in May, reports claimed Trump’s support had grown amongst black males possibly from Kanye’s co-signs.
According to a Reuters poll taken April 29, 22 percent of black males approved of the president’s job performance, up from 11 percent one week earlier. Support among black females remained relatively steady over that same span, increasing slightly from 6 to 9 percent. Overall, the Reuters poll found 41 percent of the country approved and 54 percent disapproved of Mr. Trump’s job performance. (Washington Times)
Trump previously went to Twitter to shout out Yeezy for showing him some major props.
Thank you Kanye, very cool! https://t.co/vRIC87M21X

You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.
