“Our team and the National Football League reflects our nation, with diversity coming in many forms – race, faith, our views and our goals. We have a lot of work to do and we can do it, but the comments made by the president make it harder. That’s why it was important for us, and personally for me, to show the world that even if we may differ at times, we can and should be united in the effort to become better as people and a nation,” Khan said in a statement.
Mind you, Shahid Khan is not anti-Trump. On Sunday, Washington Post, reported that Shahid Khan not only voted for Donald Trump in 2016 election – he was one of the four NFL owners who donated US$1 million to Trump inauguration committee.
