Judge tells newly sworn-in citizens, if you don’t like Donald Trump ‘go to another country’

A federal judge gave new citizens, and anti-Trump activists, a cold dose of reality at a U.S. Citizenship ceremony on Thursday.

“I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president,” Judge John Primomo told the new citizens at the San Antonio ceremony. “He will be your president and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”

Primomo told KENS5 afterward that he didn’t even vote for Trump and that he meant his statement as a message of unity and respect for the office of president.

He also took aim at Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players who sit or kneel during the national anthem.

“I detest that because you can protest things that happen in this country,” Primomo said. “You have every right to. You don’t do that by offending national symbols like the national anthem and the flag of the United States.”
