Trump uses State of the Union to attack black athletes who stand up to racism
Donald Trump used the platform of the State of the Union to once again attack black athletes who are protesting racist police brutality.
Donald Trump used his State of the Union speech to once again attack black athletes who are protesting discrimination and police brutality.
As has often been his habit, Trump hid behind someone else to re-state his racist case.
Referring to a young boy who started a movement to place flags at the graves of veterans, Trump returned to his attack noting, Preston’s reverence for those who have served our nation reminds us why we salute our flag, why we put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance, and why we proudly stand for the national anthem.
For months, Trump has complained about NFL players who protested racism by taking a respectful knee during the anthem at games.
Trump did not show respect for the flag, refusing to stop during a television appearance on Fox News to honor the retreat ceremony to remember the fallen.
He instead has denigrated black players, while praising very fine neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Now, even the State of the Union has been tainted by his obsession with racism.
It is central to who Trump is and what he believes.
