Trump: IF QB Doesn’t Like the US, ‘Maybe He Should Find A Country That Works Better for Him’

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a huge fan of Donald Trump. I find him to be utterly repulsive, but this statement I whole-heartedly agree with. Kaepernick needs to put up or shut up.


From Western Journalism:

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump suggested on Monday that if the land of the free and the home of the brave is not good enough for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, he should try someplace else.

Kaepernick drew the nation’s attention Friday night by refusing to stand for the national anthem before a preseason game. The biracial quarterback said he could not stand up for a nation that oppresses minorities.

Trump was asked about the incident Monday by conservative talk show host Dori Monson on Seattle radio station KIRO-FM.

“I think it’s personally not a good thing,” Trump said. “I think it’s a terrible thing, and you know, maybe he should find a country that works better for him. Let him try. It won’t happen.”

Kaepernick has criticized both Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton as part of his widening explanation of his actions during the increasing media attention he has received.

“You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids super predators, you have Donald Trump who’s openly racist,” Kaepernick said on Sunday.

“We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally. … That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison. So, what is this country really standing for?” Kaepernick said.

Clinton has not responded to Kaepernick’s actions or comments.

He’s being a child. You don’t have to agree with everything going on in the country to respect what we stand for and the rights we have, which, ironically, are the same rights that are allowing him to talk crap about this country.
