Football Legend Jim Brown SHOCKS Anderson Cooper With PRO-Trump Message! – VIDEO

NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown, who was a supporter of Hillary Clinton throughout the election, sat down with President-elect Donald Trump Tuesday to talk about issues. The man now has some pretty bold words for fellow Democrats who refuse to give the billionaire businessman a chance to do his job.


Not too long after he had his sit-down with Donald Trump, Brown told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin that after he spoke with the man, he found a new “admiration” for the President-elect. But he didn’t stop there. Later in an interview with network host Anderson Cooper, the legendary Cleveland Browns running back portrayed Trump as “very receptive” to his anxiety regarding racial issues.

Comparing Obama’s time in office to Trump, Brown said: “For years, the presidency has been like a smooth ride and nothing really dramatic has happened. But with him, every day is full of energy — things are gonna happen. When I met him, it was like meeting a different person.”

Brown continued to give a fair warning to his fellow Democrats and others who have found themselves rallying and fighting against the President-elect these last few months:

“In my opinion, people that go against the election are going against America. We have free elections: Everybody can vote, we fought for that, we brag about that and we know we’re gonna have a winner and we’re gonna have a loser.

So my point is, if we respect the winner and approach that person, have access to that person, then that person will look at what we’re presenting — that’s not too bad. I could’ve sat back and said, “Well, Hillary didn’t win. I’m just gonna sit on my and complain.” But, see, the one thing about this country: If you get off your butt and you apply yourself, you can be successful, but if you wanna be delivered, you’re talking about the wrong country.”


Toward the end of the interview, Cooper asked Brown if he was ‘concerned’ to see that Trump’s top Cabinet positions are made up of mostly white men. Brown’s answer, which he said may cause other black folks to call him a “sellout,” was remarkable:

“The three greatest people in my life as a young person were white: My high school superintendent, my high school coach and a graduate of Manhasset High, Kenny Molloy, who is a mentor to yours truly. And so, I’m not a person that really deals in color.

I recognize the iniquities that certain cultures have to go through, I understand the history of slavery, and all those things, but I’m not a victim. I can vote, I can participate, I can invest my money, I can invest my time, and that’s what I’m doing. I’m not working for anybody, I’m not making any money doing what I’m doing. I’m doing it because someone did it for me.”
