Donald Trump: NFL Shoulda Suspended Kaepernick for Kneeling
If the NFL would have hit Colin Kaepernick with a meaningful suspension every time he took a knee last season, it would have killed the protest dead in its tracks … so says Donald Trump.
The President of the United States sat down with Sean Hannity and spoke about the biggest issue in pro sports — the national anthem demonstrations.
“Frankly the NFL should have suspended him for 1 game and he would have never done it again,” Trump said.
POTUS suggested a stronger punishment if Kaep would have kneeled a 2nd time and a season-long suspension for a 3rd kneel.
One the NFL made an example of Kaep, Trump says “you would never of had a problem.”
He concluded, “You can not disrespect our country, our flag our anthem, you can not do that.”
