The race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to become the next president of the United States is underway, but not everyone is happy with the candidates they'll have to choose from to become their next leader.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took shots at both candidates after Monday's debate, saying to USA Today: "Both are proven liars and it almost seems like they’re trying to debate who’s less racist. And at this point … you have to pick the lesser of two evils. But in the end, it’s still evil.”

When Kaepernick was asked to respond to Trump's comments that he should leave the country, he took swipes at the Republican's president campaign and the 'Make America Great Again' statement.

He said: "It’s a very ignorant statement that if you don’t agree with what’s going on here, if you want justice, liberty and freedom for all, then you should leave the country.

"He always says ‘Make America Great Again.’ Well, it’s never been great for people of color. That’s something that needs to be addressed. Let’s make America great for the first time."

Kaepernick has been protesting during the national anthem since the preseason due to racial and social injustices in the United States. More and more players have been joining the quarterback every week. He has also promised $ 1 million for charities that aid communities in need.
