WATCH: Herschel Walker “It hurt my soul to hear the terrible names that people called Donald”

During his appearance at the RNC last night, football legend Herschel Walker gave a strong defense to President Trump and argued people who think he’s racist don’t know what they are talking about.

Walker discussed Trump’s time as owner of the Untied States Football League’s New Jersey Generals.

Walker played for the team for 2 years and said he developed a personal friendship with Trump.

Walker reminisced “Right after he bought the team, he set out to learn. He learned about the history of the team. The players, the coaches. Every detail. Then he used what he learned to make the team better.”

He added “I watched him in the board room. He can be in the middle of a big meeting but if one of the kids was on the phone, he dropped everything to take the call. He taught me that the family should be your top priority. I watched him treat janitors, security guards and waiters the same way he would treat a V.I.P. He made them feel special, because he knew they were.”

“It hurt my soul to hear the terrible names that people called Donald. The worst one is racist. I take it as a personal insult that people would think I’ve had a 37-year friendship with a racist. People that think that don’t know what they’re talking about. Growing up in the Deep South, I’ve seen racism up close. I know what it is. And it isn’t Donald Trump” Walker added.
