President Trump reiterated his feelings on Colin Kaepernick, the NFL and kneeling during the national anthem in an interview with Fox News on Wednesday night.

Trump addressed tax reform in Dauphin County, Pa., before speaking with Sean Hannity about a variety of issues, including health care reform and fake media. 

Here’s what he had to say about the anthem controversy that has dominated NFL headlines so far this season:

“I watched Colin Kaepernick and I thought it was terrible. And then it got bigger and bigger and started mushrooming,” Trump said of the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, who was the first to kneel during the anthem last season.
