President Donald Trump stated he was delighted that the NFL player demonstrations during the nationwide anthem had actually largely passed away out.
” They haven’t been kneeling and they have actually been appreciating the flag and their scores have been great since,” Trump said. “And a great deal of great things happened.”
The president discussed the problem throughout an interview with CBS host Margaret Brennan. He stated that protests should never happen during the national anthem.
” I believe that when you desire to object I believe that’s fantastic,” Trump said. “But I don’t think you do it at the sake of our flag, at the sake of our nationwide anthem. Absolutely.”
The president advised Brennan that he signed a criminal justice reform expense, a bill that many NFL players supported.
” A great deal of people in the NFL have actually been calling and thanking me for it,” he said.
He urged all Americans to respect the flag and the nationwide anthem.
” I think that individuals have to, at all times, respect our flag and at all times respect our nationwide anthem and our country,” he said. “And I think there are lots of locations and times you can oppose and you can do a lot. However you can’t do that. That’s my viewpoint.”
