Walker, who competed in the 1992 Winter Olympics as part of the US bobsleigh team, finishing seventh, said it was one of his greatest honors.

In the video, the prominent Trump supporter said: 'I started thinking this poor Black kid from South Georgia got a chance to represent the United States of America.

'I've been hearing from a lot of people saying, 'we're oppressed'. Well I'm here to tell you, you're not.


'So, all the entertainers all the athletes out there that are telling these people, we African Americans are oppressed, well, we're not. We can do whatever we want to do.'

'Being at the Olympics, I saw so many other countries had envy of the United States of America.'
