On Friday afternoon, before departing the White House to head to Canada, President Trump spent a considerable amount of time answering questions for the press. Towards the end of the discussion, a reporter comments on the NFL teams that have decided to remain in the locker room to continue their protest against our National Anthem.
At this point, Trump gets serious and makes a bold accusation against all athletes who refuse to respect our nation.
“You have a lot of people in the NFL in particular, but in sports leagues; they’re not proud enough to stand for our National Anthem. I don’t like that. What I’m going to do is I’m going to say to them, ‘Instead of talk…’ It’s all talk talk talk. We have a great country you should stand for our National Anthem. You shouldn’t go in a locker room when our National Anthem is playing.”
Being the mature, understanding man that he is, President Trump goes on to give the athletes an option. He says that, while they’re is absolutely no reason for them to be disrespecting the flag, he will acknowledge their cause.
“I’m going to ask all those people to recommend to me – because that’s what they’re protesting – people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system… and I’m going to take a look at those applications.”
Who else thinks that the athletes will continue to protest without taking Trump up on his offer? They are simply protesting to protest. It is meaningless and harmful to the nation. Why are these arrogant players still getting paid? If they don’t want to be on the field for the anthem, they shouldn’t be on the field at all!
