Landon Donovan takes jab at Donald Trump after being introduced at Mexican club Leon
'I don't believe in walls,' Donovan said while he was greeted by thousands of fans in Mexico
Landon Donovan was formally introduced as a new member of Mexican club Leon on Monday night, and the former U.S. men's national team star decided to take a subtle shot at President Donald Trump in the process. Just a couple days after, Donovan was presented to the fans inside Estadio Leon.
And then he grabbed a mic:
"As I said on Twitter, I don't believe in walls. And when I was young, I started playing soccer with Mexicans. And it was always a dream of mine to play in Mexico. And now I'm here, and I'm here to help you all win a trophy, another championship."
Here's the video:
Of course, as you may know, the wall is in reference to Trump's proposed wall along the southern border of Mexico and the United States. Donovan's words got quite the response from the fans inside the stadium and it allowed him to instantly connect with the fan base.
Now it is up to him to make them happy with his performance on the field.
