Donald Trump’s entire presidential campaign is based around the idea that the United States is a broken and troubled place in dire need of repair — thus his slogan “Make America great again.” However, when someone else expressed the same views and said the U.S. needs to fix things, the Republican nominee literally told them to look for another country that works better for them.
During a recent appearance on “The Dori Monson Show” on KIRO radio, the racist billionaire commented on the controversy surrounding San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to remain seated during the national anthem as a protest against racial oppression and police brutality.
“I have followed it and I think it’s personally not a good thing,” the business mogul told the conservative radio host on Monday. “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’s not gonna happen.”
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick explained after the game about his stance.
Not to mention, rising during the national anthem is "encouraged but not required" by the NFL.
The 49ers also issued a statement saying that Americans have the right to protest or support the anthem.
“The national anthem is and always will be a special part of the pregame ceremony,” the team said. “It is an opportunity to honor our country and reflect on the great liberties we are afforded as its citizens. In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose to participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem.”
Meanwhile, Kaepernick told reporters that he does not support either of the presidential nominees.
“You have Hillary, who has called black teens or black kids super predators, you have Donald Trump, who’s openly racist,” he said. “We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate. 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?”
