U.S President Donald Trump has reignited his feud with NFL quarter-back free agent Colin Kaepernick on Monday night bragging about the fact that NFL owners are not taking the quarter-back who has opted out of his contract at 49ers.
Many NFL owners are afraid they will annoy President Trump if they take Kaepernick in their team. The reason behind these things is the spark that got outraged last season when the player chose to kneel down during the national anthem during each game, this protest was against police brutality in U.S and racial injustice in the country.
There was an article which referred that teams are not picking Kaepernick as they are afraid it will spark a fan backlash, a statement from an AFC general manager who claimed these. Trump referred to that article saying NFL owners won’t want to pick it up as they don’t want to get a nasty tweet from him.
He asked the people whether they believe in that, if the people remember that then he is going to report it to the people of Kentucky because people there like to stand for the American flag. This was more of a random brag by the President which sparked up a huge roar from the crowd in there, social media got active in both directions.
While speaking to a radio in Seattle named KIRO radio last August, the Presidential candidate that time Trump said America might not be a best place for Kaepernick to live after the protest he withstood in the season. He rates Kaepernick’s protest as terrible even though it was for a cause, he also spoke that maybe the player should find a different country.
Back in October, Trump also said the decline in ratings in NFL is due to the controversy and protests that are sparked by Kaepernick.
