Colin Kaepernick Responded To Donald Trump's Unkind Words By Continuing His Charity Work
December 29, 2017 12:00 By Fabiosa
Colin Kaepernick's case has reached all the corners of the world since it all started in 2016. His protest was commented by many, but this time, it was the president of the USA himself.
We all remember Colin's protest which shook the world. A football quarterback stood up to racial inequality. He has had a long year and a half as he was praised as a hero and shunned like a bad guy.
One of the praises came in the form of Kaepernick being presented with the 2017 Muhammad Ali Legacy Award. However, at the same time, Colin lost his job in the NFL and became a free agent. Many of the clubs said that he brought too much publicity to be hired. That is a strange reason not to hire someone who was two times the Offensive Player of the Year.
Despite being out of work, Kaepernick has continued to give money to charity. In fact, he has become a fundraiser and a spokesperson for Love Army For Somalia charity fund. Here is a video of him celebrating a milestone in the campaign.

Donald Trump's comments
One of the people who disliked Kaepernick is the US president. Way back in 2016, Trump said some harsh words about the former quarterback. The president named Colin's protest terrible and advised him to find a country that works better for him.
This time, Donald Trump made an inappropriate remark about Kaepernick losing his job:
It was reported that NFL owners don't want to pick [Kaepernick] up because they don't want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump.
Even though it was wrong for a president to say something like that, Colin responded the best way possible: He continued his charity work. According to Ian Rapoport, the former NFL star donated another $50.000 to Meals On Wheels.
