President Trump has always been a ‘straight shooter’ expecially when it comes to patriotism. On his recent trip to Alabama, it seems Trump had a few choice words about those in the NFL that choose not to stand during the national anthem.
President Trump lashed out at NFL players protesting the national anthem on Friday while at a campaign rally for Senator Luther Strange (R-AL).
President Trump brought up the NFL players who disrespect our flag and our country by taking a knee during the National Anthem in protest.
Trump said that he and Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), who he was stumping for in Huntsville, are “unified” by “great American values.”
“We’re proud of our country and we’re proud of our flag,” he said.
He said players who disrespect the flag and kneel for the national anthem should be ejected from the stadium and cut from the team.
