Former boxer George Foreman is the latest celebrity to speak out about their support of Donald Trump (earlier this week, Pastor Paula White did the same). The 68-year-old also condemned Kevin Durant and Colin Kaepernick over the hot button issue of the National Anthem.
“I love the United States,” Foreman said on the Offended America podcast. “They [Kevin Durant and Colin Kaepernick] haven’t been brought up with people who were patriotic. A lot of people died so that they can have that privilege.”
If you remember, after the Golden State Warriors won the NBA title in June, Durant said he didn’t respect who was in office and wouldn’t go to the White House if invited.
The world’s most famous grill master also said that he credits Trump for helping him out of his bankruptcy by sponsoring a Pay-Per-View fight in 1991.
Trump is “a good president.”
