On a recent broadcast of the "Offended America" podcast, Foreman slammed the two young athletes while praising Trump as a "good" president.

"(Kaepernick and Durant) haven't been brought up with people who were patriotic to even point them in the right direction," Foreman said. "Some of them are trying to make a point, it's like look at me, I'm trying to say something. You gotta respect that, too."

Foreman calls Durant a sore loser because the Democrats failed to win the White House. And to emphasize his point, he added that he felt the same way when President Richard Nixon ended the Job Corps.

"Your guy doesn't win and you figure something is wrong, I'm not going to like the guy. I'm against him and everything but that's all there is, sore loser. Sore loser," he continued. "I was one."

As Foreman praised Trump, he took a trip down memory lane and reminisced about the real estate mogul's kindness when he was broke. Trump helped set up pay-per-view fight between him and Evander Holyfield in 1991 and fed Foreman great meals too. 

"I was broke, too. Bankrupt. Put me back, he was part of writing those checks, so I could be on the wealthy side again. So I'll always be grateful to the entrepreneur Donald Trump," he said. "And now President Donald Trump."

Days after Foreman's condemnation of the two athletes, he appeared on TMZ Live Thursday in support of Kaepernick's national anthem protest stating that the QB should be signed to a team. 

"Any team is gonna be better if they put him on their team. Kaepernick is a great quarterback. He should have a job."
