The Manhattan billionaire was asked about the Kaepernick controversy during a radio interview with KIRO’s Dori Monson ahead of a rally Trump is holding on Tuesday in Everett, Washington.
“I have followed it and I think it’s personally not a good thing, I think it’s a terrible thing,” Trump said. “And maybe he should find a country that works better for him, let him try. It won’t happen.”
Right in his wheelhouse. And good news for Kaepernick too, as he’s been out on a limb since he started protesting the national anthem last week. Trump slapping at him will win him some allies. “Kaepernick versus America” is a bad narrative for him, “Kaepernick versus Trump” is much better.
