During an 18-minute interview with reporters, Kaepernick blasted both presidential candidates for playing a part in the problems that he says America is currently facing.
“I think the two presidential candidates that we currently have also represent the issues that we have in this country right now,” Kaepernick said. “You have Hillary [Clinton], who has called black teens or black kids super predators. You have Donald Trump, who is openly racist.”
This happened during the heat of the presidential race, but more details are surfacing now.
As you can imagine, Trump didn’t take kindly to the accusation that he’s a ‘racist’. During an interview on the “Dori Monson Show”, now President Trump was asked about the Kaepernick situation, and his response was vintage Trump: If Kaepernick doesn’t like America, then he should leave.
Here’s the excerpt of the interview from from KIRO-AM in Seattle:
Dori: “Are you following 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand for the anthem? He had bad things to say about both you and Hillary.”
Trump: “I have followed it and I think it’s personally not a good thing, I think it’s a terrible thing. And maybe he should find a country that works better for him, let him try. It won’t happen.”
This is obviously quite the statement from Trump. Kaepernick did not take kindly to his words.
