O.J. Simpson is not a fan of President Donald Trump’s famous catchphrase, “Make America Great Again.” The ex-con took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the slogan.
The former NFL star filmed himself while at the golf course. He uploaded the video on social media with the caption, “When weren’t we great?”
At the beginning of the clip, Simpson urges his followers to watch both the Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention. He says, “You should be informed and most of all you should vote. If you don’t vote, you don’t have the right to complain when it’s over.”
Simpson then explains that one of his friends showed up to the golf course wearing a “MAGA” hat. “I was teasing him a little bit,” he said. “He said ‘Man, why does everyone get on my case when I wear this hat?'”
He then explains, “I think ‘Making America Great’ is great. It’s the ‘Again’ that bothers me.”
Simpson reveals that the slogan doesn’t sit well with him because it discredits former Presidents. “Through all those presidents, America was great. We were the #1 nation there is. All of these politicians today, they’re standing on the shoulders of the giants who ran this country before them.”
In conclusion, Simpson then encourages Americans to vote this coming November. While Simpson doesn’t love President Trump’s slogan, he didn’t come out in support of Joe Biden.
Back in 2018, Simpson was asked if he would have voted for Trump in the 2016 election. “Somebody asked me if I’d have voted for him … Probably not, but I only know two of my friends I’d vote to be president,” he said. “Some of my best, best besties I would not vote to be president.”
With the presidential election just around the corner, things are heating up between President Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden. Learn more here.
