  • 'If he's good enough': Trump says he would 'love' Kaepernick NFL return

"Only if he's good enough", he said.

But speaking about Kaepernick Friday, President did not mention the protests in connect to the quarterback's efforts to return. I know so numerous owners.

"I know the owners, I know [New England Patriots owner] Bob Kraft, I know so numerous owners".

Trump, who's been one of the most prominent critics of players kneeling during the anthem since Kaepernick started the trend in 2016, said he believes some team would sign him should they feel like he's "good enough" to play in the league again. I think if he's good enough, I know the owners - I know [New England Patriots' owner Robert] Kraft, I know so numerous owners - if he's good enough, they'd sign him.

After the protests saw a rise in 2017, President Trump spoke out against the demonstrations, suggesting that National Football League owners "fire" players who participated. Kaepernick's video noted that he had been "denied work for 889 days", or the length of time since he opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers.

Kaepernick also signed a deal with Nike last summer in which he received his own branded clothing. The clip shows him exercising in a gym and saying in a voiceover, "5 a.m. 5 days a week. For 3 years. Still ready", he tweeted.

"Only if he's good enough".

Trump made Kaepernick a target of his ire during his 2016 election campaign, frequently trashing the ex-San Francisco 49er for kneeling during the National Anthem.

He added, "I'd like to see it". Dozens of players later joined Kaepernick in protests against social injustice and police brutality.

There are a lot of things that a lot of credentialed White House reporters should be asking the President of the United States with all that has happened over the past few weeks, but one of them found enough reason to ask him about a free agent quarterback.
