Before became our nation’s President-elect, Al Sharpton promised he would leave the country if Hillary Clinton lost. Clearly, he was overconfident that Clinton would take it all because now he has dramatically changed his tune.
Recently, a TMZ reporter caught up with Sharpton and asked if he would be following through with his threats.
“I mean, it’s not the results we wanted,” Sharpton responded. “Very sad. But we survived almost as bad and some cases worse. We’re dealing with a guy who used divisiveness and bigotry and won. Now, how do we protect what we’ve done in the last 8 years that he’s going to come after, that President Obama established? How do we protect it? He can rest assured we are not going to take our foot off the pedal. He is going to have the fight of his life.”
The reporter then shifted the conversation a bit, asking once more if he would be leaving the country.
“I mean, all of us said that. That was said in jest,” Sharpton replied. “We’re not going anywhere. Clearly, it was said in jest. If that’s the comfort they got, they might as well get ready for an uncomfortable ride. Mr. Trump better saddle up.”
