Trump really has us scratching our heads this time as he claims to be the reason for Colin Kaepernick’s free agency status.
Kaepernick took the world by storm last season after refusing to stand for the pledge to protest racial injustices. While some call Kaepernick a traitor, others consider him a hero. After spending his whole career as a 49er, Kaepernick opted out of his contract and is now a free agent.
Although it is still early, many feel that Kaepernick is being blackballed for his actions last season. President Trump agrees with this statement and even takes credit for it.
Trump says to a Kentucky crowd,
“It was reported that NFL owners don’t want to pick him up because they don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump,” he said. “Do you believe that? I just saw that. I just saw that.”
Although Kaepernick has not responded to Trumps’ allegations, he has donated $50,000 to Meals on Wheels, which Trump has recently cut funding to. Check out the video of Trump’s rant below and tell us what you think.
