While speaking at a rally in Kentucky, President Donald J. Trump touched on former San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and his inability to find a new team.
According to celebrity news site, TMZ, Trump said:
“And you know, your San Francisco quarterback,” Trump said, via TMZ. “I’m sure nobody ever heard of him. I’m just reporting the news. There was an article today — I love to report the news and then they said I made a mistake, right? I said, ‘No, the people reporting the news made a mistake if it’s wrong.’ But there was an article today, it was reported that NFL owners don’t want to pick him up because they don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump. Do you believe that? I just saw that. I just saw that. I said if I remember that one I’m gonna report it to the people of the Kentucky. Because they like it when people actually stand for the American flag.
Trump is referring a story, previously reported by Freedom Liberty News (read here) in which Mike Freeman said an anonymous source claimed Kaepernick would struggle to find a new team because “70% of teams genuinely hate him”.
In order to save his career, Kaepernick has announced he will no longer kneel during the national anthem.
