President Donald Trump’s jab at Colin Kaepernick lit up the crowd at a Kentucky rally Monday night.
Speaking to a Louisville crowd, the president said he saw an article about the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who sparked outrage last season when he decided to kneel during the national anthem before the game kickoff.
“It was reported that NFL owners don’t want to pick him up because they don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump,” he said as cheers erupted. “Do you believe that? I just saw that”

The president had condemned Kaepernick’s actions during the election campaign and mentioning the player’s current state of unemployment set the Louisville crowd roaring.
“I said if I remember that one I’m going to report it to the people of Kentucky,” Trump said. “They like it when people actually stand for the American flag.”
