President Trump to Hold Rally in Louisville

President Trump to Hold Rally in Louisville

During a rally in Louisville, Kentucky, President Donald Trump took time to bash National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick, claiming credit for Kaepernick's extended time on the free agent market by quoting an article that said owners were afraid they would get "an angry tweet" if they signed him.

He told the crowd at the Kentucky Exposition Center NFL owners are tired to sign the supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement because they fear a Trump tweet.

During last year's campaign, Trump was a vocal critic of Kaepernick, even suggesting at one point that "maybe he should find a country that works better for him".

On March 7, Kaepernick left the San Francisco 49ers to become a free agent and has yet to be signed.

"They think there might be protests or Trump will tweet about the team", Bleacher Report quoted the general manager as saying. I lean that way, although I can see why we'll want to see what happens as offseason workout programs get closer. "Because they like it when people actually stand for the American flag".

President Donald Trump is visiting Louisville today for an event resembling a campaign rally.

The coach told Bleacher Report: 'Some teams fear the backlash from fans after getting him. I'd put that number around 20 percent. The executive said he thought about 10 percent of teams had that concern, and that as many as 60 percent of teams downright hate Kap for his protest.
