During a Saturday afternoon press conference regarding his team’s performance, Baltimore Ravens head coach veered into political commentary in an epic way.
After discussing a situation in which he believes union and NFL officials need to get together to improve upon the refs performance, Harbaugh suggested that the two sides need to “start talking to one another.”
He then added that the two sides in government should find a way to get things done as well.
And that’s when the political rant got even better.
Harbaugh announced, “I’m going Trump here” and proceeded to explain how simple it would be to solve the illegal immigration problem in our country.

And that’s where the discussion takes a political turn.
“To me both sides want it, maybe they should start talking to one another. Maybe like our government too,” Harbaugh says.
“Maybe talk to one another, solve a problem once in a while, instead of creating a problem. Be more concerned about the country than you are your party. How about we do that? Let’s try to fix things around here, you know, in this country. That’s what made us great.”
After the brief ramble, Harbaugh jokes “I’m going Trump here.”
“Build the wall. It’s not that hard. If you don’t have a border, you don’t have a country.”
Reporters asked Harbaugh if he was considering a presidential run.
“I might be coming out, I might be running,” he joked.
