Stephen A. Smith told an unbelievable story about why Donald Trump decided to run for President of this Country. The star claimed on a recent episode of “First Take” that Trump told him in 2014 that if the NFL owners wouldn’t let him buy the Buffalo Bills, he’d take revenge by running for President. “If they screw me over, I’ll sue.” I’m going to demonstrate. I’m going to retrieve them all. When discussing a possible bid to buy the Buffalo Bills, Trump allegedly told Stephen A. Smith, “I’m going to be running for President of the United States.”
Stephen A Smith shared that Donald Trump called him in 2014 when attempting to buy the Buffalo Bills and told him-

People find it hard to believe that Trump ran for President simply because he failed to buy the Buffalo Bills
In the video, Stephen A. Smith deconstructs his phone call with Trump. While some do not believe Smith is lying about calling Trump, others find it difficult to believe that the real estate mogul ran for President solely because he could not purchase the Buffalo Bills. Isn’t there something else that went into the decision? Some people find Smith’s remark about Trump amusing, but others find it offensive.
However, if this is the actual reason Trump ran for President, it’s truly hilarious. Imagine not being able to get an NFL team and instead, being given the opportunity to lead the free world. That’s not a bad consolation prize! Sure, you won’t win the Lombardi Trophy, but at the very least, you’ll be in charge of the greatest military force in history. Former President Donald Trump threatened to run for president if he didn’t buy the NFL’s Buffalo Bills in 2014, according to Stephen A. Smith, who spoke on the network Thursday.
Kaepernick was “politicised” and “hijacked” by Trump, Smith said
Smith said of Trump’s 2016 campaign, “It was him politicising the scenario for his own advantage to cause havoc for NFL owners who’d already screwed him over from being an NFL owner and being a part of their club.”
During a segment about former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s possible return to the NFL after six years, Smith brought up the Trump story. Smith claimed that Trump “politicised” and “hijacked” Kaepernick, who began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 to protest racial injustice. Smith told his fellow commentators, “The narrative was hijacked by the former president of the USA for his own benefit.”
