The president resumed his broadside against pro athletes stimulating $15 m a year who have kneeled for the national anthem in protest of racial inequality
Donald Trump’s message to athletes could not be more clear: stick to sports.
The US president resumed his broadside against professional sportspeople who have kneeled for the national anthem in protest of racial inequality, casting them as out-of-touch millionaires who should have no quarrel with the country that’s enriched them in a live interview on Fox& Friends that aired Friday morning.
” They’re all saying,’ Oh, it has nothing to do with the flag, it’s the way we’ve been treated ,’ Trump said.” In the meantime, they’re making $15 m a year. Look, I’m all for the athletes. I think it’s great. I love athletics, I love athletics, but they shouldn’t get the politics involved.
” When you’re in a stadium and they broadcast that national anthem, you got to stand and you got to be proud and you got to have your hand up and you got to do everything that’s right, then go out and play really tough football.
” And once you leave that stadium, go and do whatever you want to do. Run for office, do whatever .”
