A federal judge presiding over a U.S. citizenship ceremony had a strong message to any new Americans who don't like the idea of Trump being president, and he applied his message to anti-Trump protesters as well.
According to KENS 5 San Antonio, Judge John Primomo told the new citizens, “I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president."
Then he added, “He will be your president, and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”
Mexican immigrant-turned-.U.S.-citizen Rafael Guerra agreed, saying, “The essence of Americans is that you have the right to vote and choose [who] to represent you."
Primomo also criticized San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and anti-Trump protesters for refusing to accept Trump as president and for disrespecting American symbols.
“I detest that, because you can protest things that happen in this country; you have every right to,” he said. “You don't do that by offending national symbols like the national anthem and the flag of the United States.”
The judge didn't vote for Trump but said he respects the presidential office.
