Trump demands Kaepernick respect America — even though he’s called the US a ‘third-world country’

Published

Donald Trump has repeatedly said that the United States is no longer a great country — in fact, he’s repeatedly said that we’re like a third-world nation.

Despite this, Trump seems awfully offended that 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is refusing to stand during the national anthem to protest police brutality against black people.

The Guardian notes that during an interview with Dori Monson on KIRO Radio, Trump said that if America is such a bad country, he should leave it and try to find a better country.

“Maybe he should find a country that works better for him,” Trump said. “Let him try.”

Of course, according to Trump, there are lots of countries that are better than the United States.

Remember when he kicked off his presidential campaign by bemoaning the fact that China is so much better than the U.S. at delivering infrastructure (“They have bridges that make the George Washington Bridge look like small potatoes”)?

Or when he said that airports in both Dubai and Qatar positively blow our own away?

"The Land of Enchantment has voted for a Republican presidential candidate only once since 1992. With a considerable nonwhite voter population and all-Democratic congressional delegation, it’s not exactly fertile ground for a surprise GOP victory," the report notes before adding that Parscale feels they can make inroads this go-around.

Published

Oil prices surged more than 10 percent Monday after attacks on two Saudi Arabian plants that slashed output in the world's top producer by half, with Donald Trump blaming Iran and raising the possibility of a military strike on the country.

West Texas Intermediate jumped 10.68 percent to $60.71 and Brent climbed 11.77 percent to $67.31 in early Asia trading following the blasts at facilities run by state-owned giant Aramco.

The attack by Tehran-backed Huthi rebels in neighbouring Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is bogged down in a five-year war, effectively shut down six percent of the global oil supply.
