Canadian professional poker player, Daniel Negreanu, said that he took the oath in becoming a U.S. citizen just so he can vote against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in November’s general election.
Negreanu, whose nickname is “Kid Poker” and a Toronto native, posted the affirmation on Instagram, stating that he is now a U.S. Citizen and “will be voting in November to keep Trump out of the Oval Office.”
He also took to Twitter and railed against the real estate mogul for instigating violence and preaching bigotry against non-whites and the media.
I will continue to speak out against the violence and racist, bigoted, vitriol encourage by Donald Trump. This is serious. It’s not a joke.
