Kerr Addresses Donald Trump’s Travel Ban: ‘We Could Be Breeding Anger & Terror. It’s a Horrible Idea’ (Video)
Much like San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has not held his tongue when giving his thoughts about Donald Trump.
Trump recently instituted an executive order barring citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the country for 90 days and the decision was met with protest and anger. Steve Kerr is one of those people who is not impressed.
“I would just say that as someone whose family member was a victim of terrorism, having lost my father, if we’re trying to combat terrorism by banishing people from coming to this country, by … really going against the principles of what our country is about and creating fear, it’s the wrong way to go about it,” Kerr told reporters following his team’s victory over the Portland Trail Blazers Sunday night, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.
“If anything, we could be breeding anger and terror, so I’m completely against what’s happening. I think it’s shocking. It’s a horrible idea, and I feel for all of the people who are affected. Families are being torn apart, and I worry, in the big picture, what this means to the security of the world. It’s going about it completely opposite. You want to solve terror, you want to solve crime. This is not the way to do it.”
