Federal judge John Primomo had some stern words for new Americans last week, according to KHOU-TV.

Primono, who was residing over a U.S. citizenship ceremony, made it clear that whether or not you support President-elect Donald Trump, Trump is the president of all Americans.

"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,” Primomo said, according to KENS-TV.

"[Trump] will be your president and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country," he explained.

Despite the harsh tone of his comments, Primono later told KENS that he didn't intend his words to be divisive or political, but rather unifying and respectful.

Still, during the citizenship ceremony, Primono made his thoughts very clear about people who disrespect the U.S., saying that he "detests" Americans protesting Trump as "not my president," and those who are taking knees during the National Anthem at sporting events.

"I detest that, because you can protest things that happen in this country; you have every right to,” he said. “You don't do that by offending national symbols like the national anthem and the flag of the United States."
