Most people probably didn’t expect this but Colin Kaepernick got some surprising support from President Donald Trump who was a harsh critic of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem.

“Yeah, if he’s good enough,” Trump said. “I know the owners. So, if he’s good enough, I know these people, they would sign him in a heartbeat. They will do anything they can to win games.”
He added, “I’d like to see it. Frankly, I’d love see Kaepernick come in if he’s good enough. But I don’t want to see him come in if somebody thinks it’s a good PR move.”
