Like most of us, President Donald Trump is fed-up with the national anthem protests and the “taking a knee” trend that has taken over professional sports. Trump has never been one to back down, and this is no exception. He has an epic solution to get the whining NFL brats off their knees, and it is sure to spark major outrage in the process.
The national anthem protests have got an overwhelming amount of media attention and caught the attention of none other than President Trump. It is safe to say our “America-first” President was not thrilled over the disrespect that our nation and our nation’s heroes are receiving from our country’s most entitled brats. Now, Trump is taking a stand on the protesting issue until it is resolved and every last player is on their feet.
According to New York Daily News, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have released a petition “demanding” all players and fans stand for the national anthem. However, the petition actually reads, “The President has asked for a list of supporters who stand for the National Anthem. Add your name below to show your patriotism and support,” before asking for your name, email, and zip code.
While the liberal mainstream media is trying to make Trump sound like he’s giving orders and ignoring freedoms, that’s really not it at all. He wants to know where his fellow Americans stand, literally. It’s quite brilliant, really. What better way to show the protesting punks and the team owners in the NFL how out of line they are than to collect a list of names to show how little support their antics are receiving, regardless of their so-called “cause.” When they see that an extremely large portion of their fanbase isn’t with them on this one, they’ll soon be on their feet in hopes of protecting their wallet.
The petition comes just one day after Trump criticized the NFL for not passing a rule that would penalize players who don’t stand for the anthem. He tweeted, “The NFL has decided that it will not force players to stand for the playing of our National Anthem. Total disrespect for our great country!”
The NFL has made it clear they personally believe everyone should be standing for the national anthem, but they will not force the issue. In other words, they are cowards, too afraid to stand up to the overpaid athletes. Of course, Trump had made that no secret either when he tweeted, “@NFL: Too much talk, not enough action. Stand for the National Anthem.” Trump has not only criticized the NFL but the players as well. Back in September, when the protests were on the rise, Trump’s famous remark “get that son of a bitch off the field,” instantly caused controversy.
While some criticize Trump’s head-strong personality and blame him for adding fuel to the fire and furthering the anthem protests, it’s nice to see a Commander-in-Chief who doesn’t fold on his principles and take the politically correct route, pandering to those who whine the loudest. Lucky for us patriots, we know we can count on Trump to keep his word and keep trying until he gets the job done.
If there is one person in office that stands by their word, it is our President who has yet to let us down. If you want to see this horrible protesting put to a screeching halt, share this and help get the petition signed. We’re excited to see this “Stand For The Anthem Petition” and hope it leads to some real, positive change in America as these athletes realize they don’t have our support.
