ESPN’s Stephen Smith Says Trump Is Out To Get Revenge On NFL
President Trump seems to be more concerned with blasting the National Football League and its players rather than focusing on more presidential matter, such as the million of Americans who are still without power and clean drinking water in Puerto Rico. At first, we expected this was just his way furthering a racially divisive rhetoric.
But what if it goes deeper than that? What if Trump has held a grudge over a past incident with the NFL and is just now finding the opportunity to seek his restitution?
Well, that is exactly what ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith asserted on Monday. In fact, Smith explained that Trump has “successfully hijacked” the issue of National Football League players kneeling during the national anthem because NFL owners refused to let him join the league in the 1980s. And there we have it, ladies and gentleman, our motive.
Upon further investigation, sources indicate that Trump owned the New Jersey Generals and pushed to merge the USFL with the NFL before the former league shut down. What’s more, Trump also tried to purchase the Buffalo Bills in 2014, but his bid fell short. Guess he was just too cheap?
