An NFL legend is mad at Donald Trump for this shocking reason

Woke sports stars being at odds with Donald Trump is not a surprise.

But the latest back and forth between this one star athlete and Donald Trump is surprising.

And now an NFL legend is mad at Donald Trump for this shocking reason.

Former University of Georgia and NFL star running back Herschel Walker is the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate in Georgia.

Walker is set to take on Democrat incumbent Raphael Warnock in what will be one of the most expensive and closely contested Senate races in America.

The outcome of this race could very well determine which Party controls the United States Senate next year.

As soon as Walker announced his candidacy for the Senate, Donald Trump endorsed him.

But in an interview with rapper Killer Mike, Walker explained that he was annoyed the media portrayed him as only entering the race after Donald Trump asked him to run.

“One thing that people don’t know is President Trump never asked me,” Walker stated. “I need to tell him that he never asked. I heard it all on television that ‘he’s going to ask Herschel,’ saying Herschel is going to run. President Trump never came out and said ‘Herschel, will you run for that Senate seat?’”

Walker added that he was mad at Trump for taking credit for him deciding to run for Senate.

“So, I’m mad at him, because he never asked, but he’s taking credit that he asked,” Walker declared.

In reality, Walker revealed that his strong religious convictions are what led him to declare his candidacy for United States Senate.

“I prayed about it,” Walker explained. “And to be honest with you, I was praying that God would bring somebody else because I’m happy. My life is doing well.”

Last June, in an appearance on the Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show, Trump told the hosts that Walker should run for Senate and that he would be a fine candidate.

“He told me he’s going to, and I think he will,” Trump exclaimed. “He’s a great guy. He’s a patriot. He’s a very loyal person. They love him in Georgia, I’ll tell you…I think it would be very, very hard to beat Herschel…I think beating him would be very tough. And I think he’s going to run.”

Donald Trump is expected to campaign for Walker this fall, as Georgia is one of the most important Senate races in the country.
