Wilson doubts Trump can make it four years as president

Add Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson to the ever-growing list of athletes to criticise United States president Donald Trump and his recent controversial actions.

In a Facebook Live segment on Tuesday, Wilson did not hold back on Trump while receiving a haircut, going as far to say he believes the president will not serve all four years in office.

From Los Angeles Lakers forward Luol Deng to NASCAR's most popular driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr., sports figures across the world have criticised Trump's travel ban of immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations to USA and his unorthodox political leadership.

"If we are going to be a nation that says we are equal, we have to be equal," Wilson said, via the Seattle Times.

"Obviously being smart and all that kind of stuff. But you also have to be able to treat people fairly, have to be able to love everyone.

"And I know from even my own faith, the Christian faith, you still have to love everybody, no matter what our issues are, we still have to find ways to love people and care for people, and so I think that's the thing that's been crazy already."

He added: "I don't even know if he's going to be able last four years, in my opinion.

"You don't want to wish bad upon anybody because if he doesn't last four years that means that something went wrong.

"So hopefully nothing goes wrong anymore than what it's already doing. But it's just been a crazy 10 days already."
