It looks like President Trump is patting himself in the back for the NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick for not being signed on a team yet.
During a rally in Louisville, Kentucky, Donald Trump told the crowd attending that he had read an article about the NFL owners having fears to sign Kaepernick to a team
“They don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump. Do you believe that?”
Trump also told the people that he had to share that tidbit with “the people of Kentucky because they like it when people actually stand for the American flag.”
The beef between then candidate Trump and QB Kaepernick was a back and forth of words when Kaepernick called Trump “openly racist.”
Of course Trump as quick to fire back saying, “And, you know, maybe he should find a country that works better for him. Let him try. It won’t happen.”
Trump and the NFL owners might be surprised to learn that sources say that Kaepernick had planned to stand for the National Anthem in the 2017 season.
