Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs says he is officially endorsing former Vice President Joe Biden for president.

The mogul, 50, made the stakes of this election clear while talking to Charlamagne Tha God on his own Revolt TV  cable network on Thursday, telling the interviewer he thinks the 2020 elections are a life-or-death decision.

Diddy, who described himself as an independent during the sit-down, also announced the launch of his own political party, which will focus on the needs of Black Americans.

‘If Trump gets elected, I really do believe in my heart there will be a race war,’ he said at the top of the interview.

‘White men like Trump need to be banished,’ he explained.

‘That way of thinking is real dangerous. This man literally threatened the lives of us and our families about going to vote,’ he said in reference to the ‘stand back and stand by’ comments the 45th President made during his September 29th debate against Joe Biden.

“We’re in a war. We’re not taking this like it’s a war. We’re taking it like it’s a presidential election. We’re in a war of love versus hate.’

‘The number one priority is to get Trump out of office,’ he went on. ‘The tribe of people that have the responsibility and really should be scared to death of this man is white people.’

Back in April Diddy had urged Black people to ‘hold their vote hostage,’ but in the interview he said it would be ‘irresponsible’ to advocate for that now. 

He then announced his own vision: a political party called Our Black Party.

Describing his political action as ‘one of the boldest movements [he’s] ever launched,’ Diddy revealed he was launching a political party tailored toward the needs of the African-American community.

He explained Our Black Party’s platform, saying they aim to decriminalize poverty, defund the police, address racism in healthcare, provide guaranteed income for all, grow Black businesses, provide high-quality and affordable education, in addition to other initiatives – per Revolt.

He also touched on the legacy of his 2004 Vote Or Die voter participation campaign, calling Our Black Party the ‘evolution of that thought.’

Diddy said he’d become disillusioned with the Democratic Party after campaigning for people, only to have promises forgotten.

‘The voter died Diddy he was about politics and  you know trying to be supportive,’ he said, adding: ‘Also you know you we [the Democrats] kind of guilt us in the voting…’

‘But as I evolved I realized this is a business. This is a transaction. This is the closest thing to the streets than the streets that I’ve seen.’

‘You can’t keep on giving your power away for free,’ he later added.
