Former NFL player & Utah congressional candidate Burgess Owens stated that the United States will see a “renaissance” if President Trump is elected for a second term and if Republicans win both the House and Senate.
“Give us back the House, the Senate, and have President Trump for the next four years and we will see a true renaissance that ‘We the People’ will experience together, and we’ll finally get ourselves pulled back together, versus the divisiveness that’s happening with the Democrat Party,” Owens told Breitbart News.
The former Oakland Raiders player also set his sights on Sen. Kamala Harris during the interview, which followed presumptive Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden selecting her as his running mate.
“The more we know about Kamala Harris, the more we know that she has been horrendous, that she is totally not the person that any of us want to be leading our country,” Owens said.
Burgess Owens is an outspoken Trump supporter and is running as a Republicans in Utah’s 4th Congressional District, where he will face off against incumbent Democratic Rep. Ben McAdams in the general election this November.
Recently he made waves for denouncing the violent protests and riots that have broken out following the Memorial Day death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.
Owens denounced the NFL and its acceptance of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s activism with the Black Lives Matter movement.
“We have too many Americans now accepting the notion that the flag should be a place where people should be ashamed of or take a knee, that’s what it comes down to,” Owens said earlier this summer.
“We’re willing to have the distraction of a Marxist, a Castro, brother-loving Marxist to come back and play that many Americans don’t want to see him play,” he said of Kaepernick.
