Donald Trump Calls NFL QB Colin Kaepernick's Anthem Protest 'a Terrible Thing'

Colin Kaepernick refused to stand during the national anthem on Friday.

"I have followed it," Trump told Dori Monson on Seattle's KIRO radio station. "And I think it’s personally not a good thing. I think it’s a terrible thing. Maybe he should find a country that works better for him. Let him try. It won’t happen."

Earlier today, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest called the act "objectionable" but noted Kaepernick's right to protest as he wishes.
