PA Senate Candidate Lou Barletta: 'Trump's Economy Is So Good, Kaepernick Got a Job'
Pennsylvania Rep. Lou Barletta hosted President Trump at a rally in Erie on Wednesday night where he repeatedly praised the president and his accomplishments.
Barletta, a Hazleton Republican who is seeking to unseat Democratic Sen. Bob Casey Jr. this year, welcomed Trump to the Keystone State by reminding the crowd how much the president "loves Pennsylvania."
Trump attended college in West Philadelphia, and some of the Trump children attended preparatory school in Pottstown.
"Each time that you come [here], the list of 'promises made, promises kept' gets longer and longer," Barletta said.
Barletta said Trump is overseeing the "greatest economy in American history."
"Four million new jobs were created," he said. "I'll tell you how good the economy is -- This economy is so good that even Colin Kaepernick has a job."
Kaepernick, a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, has come under criticism for kneeling for the national anthem and other incidents like wearing anti-police socks at practice.
Kaepernick was recently signed by Nike.
In addition to Barletta, Pennsylvania GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner and Rep. Mike Kelly joined Trump at the rally.
