(FOX NEWS) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump criticized San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick Monday, calling Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the national anthem “a terrible thing.”

“I think it’s personally not a good thing,” Trump told Seattle radio station KIRO when asked about the controversy. “I think it’s a terrible thing, and you know, maybe he should find a country that works better for him, let him try, it’s not gonna happen.”

Kaepernick became the subject of national controversy over the weekend when he remained seated on the San Francisco bench during the playing of the “Star-Spangled Banner” prior to Friday night’s preseason game against the Green Bay Packers.

While explaning his stance to reporters Sunday, Kaepernick criticized both Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

“You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids super predators, you have Donald Trump who’s openly racist,” Kaepernick said. “We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally … That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison. So, what is this country really standing for?”
