A Texas judge presiding over a citizenship ceremony told a group of brand-new American citizens to leave the country if they don’t like its new President-elect, Donald Trump.
“I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your President,” Judge John Primomo said at the Thursday ceremony in San Antonio,according to KENS.
He continued: “He will be your President, and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”

so you mind telling me how long it took? i understand that for some it can take a long time.
[Judge Primomo] claimed he did not vote for Donald Trump, and said he was simply encouraging the new citizens to have respect for the presidency and not taking a political stance.
Despite the comments, the new American citizens did not waver in their passion for their new country.
“It is exciting to be an American. I believe that America is bigger than whoever is in office,” Iraqi native Mohammed Al Farradh said.
My point is that the New York Daily News has editorialized this story, and I'm guessing that the full comment from the judge, when taken in total, were not as out-of-place as the linked story makes them out to be.
