Toronto FC captain and longtime USMNT player Michael Bradley is frustrated with President Donald Trump. Bradley ripped Trump on Thursday, saying Trump is “completely empty,” and that “there isn’t a moral bone in his body,” according to Sportsnet.
Bradley, 32, said he believes in order for the United States to fix issues of racial injustice, “Then Trump can’t be president, it’s as simple as that.”
Bradley was responding to the mass protests across the United States following George Floyd’s death. Floyd died in police custody after a video showed Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin forced his knee onto Floyd’s neck for nine minutes. Floyd repeatedly said he couldn’t breathe, and bystanders pleaded with Chauvin to assist Floyd.
That video has resulted in nation-wide protests condemning racial injustice, systemic racism and police brutality in the country.
Bradley said he wanted to be “part of the fix,” and encouraged people to vote in November.
“We need as many people as possible to understand that at a real level, to think about what four more years with Trump as president, what that would mean, how terrible that would be for so many people.”
Those comments received support from Bradley’s teammate, Joze Altidore, who tweeted, “Nothing but the truth here” while linking to Bradley’s comments.
