Al Sharpton said he was just kidding when he said he was leaving the country if Donald Trump became president.
Just days after the Republican nominee was declared the winner, the civil rights activist said comments he made previously like that “he was reserving his ticket to get out of here if he wins” was “all in jest.”
“All of us said that,” Sharpton told a TMZ cameraman. “That was said in jest. We’re not going anywhere. Clearly, it was said in jest. If that’s the comfort they got, they might as well get ready for an uncomfortable ride.” (RELATED: Amy Schumer Not Leaving The Country After Threatening To Do So)
“Mr. Trump better saddle up.”
“He can rest assure we are not going to take our foot off the pedal. He is going to have the fight of his life.”
