ESPN Reporter Has Interesting Theory on Trump’s Motivations [Video]
ESPN reporter Stephen A. Smith said that former President Donald Trump called him in 2014, during his bid to purchase the NFL team the Buffalo Bills, and threatened to run for president if he didn’t successfully buy the team.
“If they screw me over, I am going to show them,” Trump said, according to Smith. “I’m going to get them all back. I’m going to run for president of the United States.”
Ultimately, Trump was not able to buy the Buffalo Bills.
“It was him politicizing the situation for his own benefit to cause havoc for NFL owners who had screwed him over from becoming, from becoming an NFL owner and being a part of their club,” Smith said about Trump’s 2016 campaign.
