As the NFL began its defying agenda against the national anthem and flag, President Trump made himself heard on the matter, noting this “has nothing to do with race.”
On the other hand, liberals gave the NFL rebellion two thumbs up, clearly dismissing any value and symbol the country was founded on. Plenty of support for the players came from the media as well, all of which naturally took the liberal point of view and cherished the move.
However, for Trump, this has nothing to do with the racial issue. He spoke shortly, while in New Jersey.
“This has nothing to do with race. I never said anything about race,” he said. “This has to do with respect for our country and respect for our flag.”
He didn’t pull back on his statement about repercussions being essential in this case.
“I think the owners should do something about it,” he insisted. “It’s very disrespectful to our flag and our country.”
Leaving matters still ongoing, Trump sent a distinct message via social media platforms as well:
“The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this!” he tweeted.
The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this!
