President Trump on Friday rejoined NFL players against police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem – the New Orleans Saints apologizing to QB Drew Brees and saying, “No knowledge!” During the “Star-Spangled Banner.”
“I’m a big fan of Drew Price. I think he’s one of the really great quarterbacks, but he shouldn’t have regained his original position in rallying our wonderful American flag. The old glory must be respected, admired, and flown high. ” Trump has tweeted.
“We must stand upright and tall, not simply a salute, or a hand in the heart. There are other things you can object to, but not our great American flag – no knowledge! “
Bryce said Wednesday that kneeling during the national anthem is “insulting to the flag” – and he quickly apologized for his comments from players, activists and others for issuing a statement after the death of George Floyd.
“I know there’s not much I can say that will make things better now,” Price said Instagram Video.
“But I want you to see in my eyes how sorry I am for my comments yesterday. I know they hurt many people, especially friends, teammates, former teammates, loved ones, people I care about and respect,” he continued.
“I wish I had settled in my heart the need for George Floyd’s murder, Ahmed Arberry, years and years of social injustice, police brutality and the law, and so many reforms and changes. As mentioned, other things to bring equality to our black communities.
“I’m sorry, I’ll do my best, I’ll be part of the solution. I am your partner. I know no words will do that justice, it should be [earned]. “
Trump’s tweets came amid a nationwide controversy over race and police brutality following Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police, triggering widespread protests.
Since that time, the San Francisco 49ers have started to embrace the trend, with Trump slamming NFL players and other players for kneeling during the anthem.
“Wouldn’t you like to tell one of these NFL owners, when someone respects our flag, to get the son of that bitch off the field right now?” Out! He was fired. He was fired! Model ”Trump said in Alabama in 2017.
Kaepernick was on the bench during the third pre-season game, but after talking to former NFL player and former Green Beret Nate Boyer, he started kneeling in the fourth, telling him it would show more respect for military members.
But the quarterback quickly bounced out of the league and hasn’t played since – dozens of other NFL players followed his lead and continued to kneel during the anthem.
