A judge in San Antonio, Texas stood tall for President-elect Trump on Thursday during a swearing in ceremony for new immigrants who are becoming U.S.citizens.
“I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president,” Judge John Primomo said. “He will be your president and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”
The Judge had sharp words for the wave of protesters who are marching through U.S. cities with signs reading, ‘He’s not my president.’ Primomo also criticized NFL athletes who take a knee during the national anthem.
“I detest that, because you can protest things that happen in this country; you have every right to,” Judge Primomo said. “You don’t do that by offending national symbols like the national anthem and the flag of the United States.”
Primomo later told a local news station that he meant his words to be unifying and respectful of the office of the president, not political. He said that he didn’t vote for Donald Trump.
