On Thursday, Judge John Primomo told the diverse group about Donald Trump‘s election victory, “I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president. And he will be your president and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”

The judge later commented to KENS 5 that “he meant his words to be unifying.” Primomo also told the media outlet that he “didn’t vote for Donald Trump.”

That said, at the citizenship ceremony, Primomo spoke out against people who have been protesting the presidential election outcome.

The judge reportedly also went on to criticize professional football players who refuse to stand for the national anthem, saying, “I detest that, because you can protest things that happen in this country; you have every right to…You don’t do that by offending national symbols like the national anthem and the flag of the United States.”
