WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump is taking a swipe at quarterback Colin Kaepernick as he holds a campaign-style rally in Louisville, Kentucky.

Kaepernick, an NFL free agent, has yet to be signed to a team.

Trump tells the crowd he read an article reporting that NFL owners don't want to pick Kaepernick up "because they don't want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump."

"Do you believe that?" he asked the enthusiastic crowd.

Kaepernick refused to stand during the national anthem at the start of NFL games last season to protest police treatment of minorities.

Trump says of the people of Kentucky, "They like it when people actually stand for the American flag."
