In an interview with Fox News, legendary boxer George Foreman praised President Donald Trump (calling him a “good President”) while calling athletes like Colin Kaepernick and Kevin Durant “unpatriotic” for not wanting to stand for the national anthem in protest or in Durant’s case, not wanting to go to the White House if his team were invited. Here are highlights:

On athletes like Kaepernick and Durant: “I love the United States. They [Kevin Durant and Colin Kaepernick] haven’t been brought up with people who were patriotic. A lot of people died so that they can have that privilege.”

On how things were back in his day: “We came in the era we were patriotic. The greatest day of my life was when I put on the colors, representing the United States.”
