Stephen A Smith made a stunning revelation from way back in 2014 about how Donald Trump threatened to screw over the NFL if he did not get his wish of buying into the league. According to Stephen A Smith, the 45th US President wanted to purchase the Buffalo Bills but never had the opportunity to attain his dream.
After it emerged that he would not be able to buy into the franchise, Donald Trump vouched to get back to the Bills’ owners and it propelled him to run for the position of the President. Smith also claimed that Trump wanted to use his position of power to get back at everyone who denied him his wish of buying into the league.
Stephen A Smith admitted to getting a threat call regarding the NFL from Donald Trump in 2014
“Donald Trump called yours truly, that would be me,” Smith admitted on First Take. “And he said that he wanted to purchase the Buffalo Bills. And I’ll never forget what he said to me.
“He said, ‘if those owners screw me over and I’m just using the FCC allowable version…he said, ‘if they screw me over, I’m gonna show them, I’m gonna get them all back, I’m gonna run for president of the United States.’ That’s what he said to me back in 2014.”
However, Stephen A Smith only revealed all this information from the past, to speak about the impending return of the former NFL star, turned animal activist, Colin Kaepernick who is all set to try out for the Raiders next week.
“It wasn’t about Colin Kaepernick,” Smith continued. “It was him, politicizing the situation for his own benefit to cause havoc for NFL owners who had screwed him over from becoming an NFL owner and being part of their club.”
It hardly comes as a shock that Donald Trump wanted to go to any level to screw over the NFL. The former US president had always been a vociferous critic of Colin Kaepernick’s protest and it was another way of showing his wrath on the league.
