"I think we got a little bit shortchanged," he said. "That’s not knocking the president. … 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.”

He went on to discuss how he believes Clinton needs to address black communities directly if she wants those votes. He said he thinks black people should "hold" their votes until their needs are met.

“You can get the vote. It doesn’t have to be held that long. But you have to come get it."
