Colin Kaepernick: Kanye West urges NFL player to meet with Donald Trump

American rapper Kanye West has urged NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick to “tell your experience directly” to US President Donald Trump.

In 2016, Kaepernick was criticised by Trump after he became the first player to kneel during the national anthem to highlight racial injustice.

Last month, Trump said Nike had sent a “terrible message” when they named the 30-year-old as the face of the brand’s new advertising campaign.

West urged them to open a “dialogue”.
