U.S. men’s national team midfielder Michael Bradley says that President Donald Trump is “completely empty”, adding that there “isn’t a moral bone in his body”.
The U.S. is currently in the midst of a historic period of protest with people all over the country marching following the killing of George Floyd.
Meanwhile, the country is also feeling the effects of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has killed over 100,000 Americans to date.
Bradley has criticised Trump in the past, saying he was “sad and embarrassed” by Trump’s 2017 travel ban targeted at primarily Muslim countries.
And, with the U.S. in a state of disarray, Bradley has hit out at the president for what he sees as a lack of leadership.
“We have a president who is completely empty. There isn’t a moral bone in his body,” Bradley said on a media conference call.
“There’s no leadership. There’s no leadership from the president, there’s no leadership from the Republican senators who have sat back and been totally complicit in everything he’s done for the last three and a half years.”
Bradley is not the only American international to criticise Trump, with U.S. women’s national team star Megan Rapinoe engaging in a much-publicised war of words with the U.S. President.
