On Saturday, The Hill reported that Judge John Primomo had strong words for new citizens who may not like President-elect Donald Trump.  If they don’t like the results of the election, he said in no uncertain terms, they should leave and go to another country.

“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,” he said Thursday.

“He will be your president and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”

The Hill added:

At the ceremony in San Antonio, the judge condemned Americans who have protested by holding signs that read “Not my president” in the days since Trump won the election.

Primomo, a federal magistrate judge for the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas, also went after the NFL players who take a knee rather than standing during the national anthem at football games.

“I detest that, because you can protest things that happen in this country; you have every right to,” he said. “You don’t do that by offending national symbols like the national anthem and the flag of the United States.”

Houston’s KHOU reported:

Primomo later told KENS 5 that he meant his words to be unifying and respectful of the office of the president, not political. He said that he didn’t vote for Donald Trump.

The most hopeful speech of the day came from brand new Americans.

“The essence of Americans is that you have the right to vote and choose [who] to represent you,” said Rafael Guerra, a new American born in Mexico.

In an election where women played such a pivotal role, Indian immigrant and new American Vharati Dharwadkar said that women have it better in the U.S. than in her native India.

“The freedom and the importance that ladies get in this country is independence,” Dharwadkar said. “She can freely say whatever she has to say. I feel free in this country compared to my country.”
