President Trump is simply a better deal maker than the hacks over at the NFL. Unpatriotic hacks it should be noted.
Trump just took the wind out of the protesting player’s sails and now the ball is in their court.
They can’t refuse and if they agree, they admit Trump isn’t so bad after all.
We will all soon find out if they are legitimate or just using Trump for publicity.
From the Hill:
“They’re not proud enough to stand for our national anthem, I don’t like that,” Trump said to reporters outside the White House on Friday, criticizing the protests as “talk, talk, talk.”
However, he said, he plans to ask kneeling athletes to recommend “friends of theirs or people that they know about” who they think should be pardoned.
“I am going to ask all of those people to recommend to me — because that’s what they’re protesting — people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system,” Trump said.
NFL players began kneeling during the anthem in the 2016 season to protest racial inequality and police brutality.
“I’m going to take a look at those applications,” Trump said. “If my committee finds that they’re unfairly treated, then we will pardon them or at least let them out.”
