President Trump’s Super Bowl Message Taken to Heart, No Kneel’rs
President Donald Trump warned players in Sunday’s Super Bowl football championship not to kneel in protest, during a message ahead of the game.
He expressed appreciation “for those who make occasions like this possible, particularly the brave men and women of our Armed Forces,” a statement issued by The White House noted.
“We hold them in our hearts and thank them for our freedom as we proudly stand for the National Anthem,” President Trump said.
The National Football League season was plunged into acrimony in September, when President Trump disparaged as “Sons of Bitches” the mostly African-American players kneeling during the anthem in a protest at social injustice.
“We send our best wishes for an enjoyable Super Bowl Sunday,” President Trump said in his message ahead of the game between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.
“May God bless and protect our troops,” he continued.
No players took a knee during our National Anthem.
Have a terrific week.
