ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith Says Trump Ran for President to Get Revenge on the NFL

In the 1980s, Donald Trump owned the New Jersey Generals in the United States Football League. It was actually then that he first met Herschel Walker, signing him to a massive contract. He was not well-liked by his fellow owners and some of them blame him for the league’s failure.

Trump had always hoped to one day purchase an NFL team. In 2013, his attempt to buy the Buffalo Bills fizzled out. According to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, Trump ran for president to get revenge on the NFL owners.

Smith told viewers that Trump had said during a phone call between the two, “If they screw me over, I am going to show them. I’m going to get them all back. I’m going to run for president of the United States.”

The sportscaster continued, “It was him politicizing the situation for his own benefit to cause havoc for NFL owners who had screwed him over from becoming, from becoming an NFL owner and being a part of their club.”

The ESPN personality also believes that Trump ‘hijacked’ Colin Kaepernick’s social justice movement. “The narrative was hijacked by the former president of the United States for his own benefit,” he said.
