Shad Khan, owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, told USA Today in an interview after the National Football League concluded two-day meetings in New York City on October 19, 2017 that he knew why President Trump is attacking the NFL.
In the most ridiculous statements that anyone could make, Shad Kahn claims the reason why President Trump attack on the National Football League was out of pure jealousy and the fact that the protest disrespects our national anthem, flag, and especially our troops past and present.
Khan said in the interview “He’s been elected President, where maybe a great goal he had in life to own an NFL team is not very likely. So to make it tougher, or to hurt the league, it’s very calculated. This is a very personal issue with him.”
Where does Shad Khan come up with this idea that President Trump is jealous of the National Football League? I can only presume that Khan is talking about Donald Trump’s bid to by the Buffalo Bills in 2014. But what Khan fails to realize is that Donald Trump is a very smart and calculated businessman who is not going to over pay for a NFL franchise and withdrew his bid just as Jon Bon Jovi withdrew his bid as well.
But what Khan fails to mention in his interview with USA Today that he donated $1 million to President Trump’s inaugural committee back in 2016. I wonder if that just happen to slip his memory.
Later in the interview Shad Khan’s gives his real reason for the interview and that is to bash President Trump and the travel ban from six primarily Islamic Nations earlier this year.
“Let’s get real. The attacks on Muslims, the attacks on minorities, the attacks on Jews. I think the NFL doesn’t even come close to that on the level of being offensive. Here, it’s about money, or messing with — trying to soil a league or a brand that he’s jealous of.
That’s one aspect that you can imagine — someone is getting a visa that will change their life is from a Muslim-majority country — and, now, boom, that dream to change lives, they get locked out. That’s a hell of a lot more significant than fighting some sponsors or people who want their money back because they’ve been riled up.”
Shad Khan you are the one that is jealous of President Trump. Go back and tell your fellow liberal NFL owners to suck it up buttercups and realize you are in a battle with the American people and our president and you will lose.
