President Trump answers the claims by leftists desperate to portray him as a racist guilty of simultaneously ignoring the Latinos of Puerto Rico as he attacks the primarily black NFL players disrespecting our nation.

He responds, saying, “I was ashamed of what was taking place, because to me that was a very important moment. I don’t think you can disrespect our country, our flag, our national anthem. To me the NFL situation is a very important situation.

President Trump says, “I’ve heard that before, about was I preoccupied. Not at all, not at all. I have plenty of time on my hands. All I do is work and to be honest with you, that’s an important function of working. It’s called respect for our country.”

“Many people have died,” notes the President, “many, many people. Many people are so horribly injured. I was at Walter Reed Hospital recently and I saw so many great young people, and they’re missing legs and they’re missing arms and they’ve been so badly injured. And they were fighting for our country, they were fighting for our flag.”

Trump says, “They were fighting for our national anthem. And for people to disrespect that by kneeling during the playing of our national anthem I think is disgraceful. So, I will also say that, again, I read you part of this quote, but the governor of Puerto Rico is so thankful for the great job that we’re doing.”

Trump reminds the reporters that the job in Puerto Rico is the most difficult one because it is on an island, noting, “It’s out in the ocean. You can’t just drive your trucks there from other states. And the governor said we are doing a great job.”

Trump concludes saying, “So we are totally focused on that but at the same time, it doesn’t take me long to put out a wrong and maybe we will get it right. I think it’s a very important thing for the NFL to not allow people to kneel during the playing of our national anthem, to respect our country and to respect our flag.”

  1. I think it is time a President has addressed the un-American and uncivil activities of those who want to take down the country with false demonstrations.

    Keep calling out the ignorant and racist activities.

    People, today, are so used to snapping their fingers (figuratively) and expecting results. They forget that, after two devastating hurricanes hit the mainland and a third hitting the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rice, resources are stretched to their limits.

    Trump declared the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico disasters BEFORE the storms hit and logistics were being prepared before it was over. They also forget that the seas were not safe for transport and the airports weren’t cleared until recently.

    I don’t mean to sound heartless, as I’m not, but folks have forgotten how to “do for themselves”. Build a still and distill the water; fish for food if you have none. Help IS coming but don’t sit and wait for it. Do for yourself as though help is NOT coming.

    Trump has addressed the NFL crap appropriately. “Tweeting” takes seconds and signing Emergency EO’s takes the same. He’s not a magician. He can only do so much and the rest is up to those machinations charged with expediting those orders; the military, government agencies and, of course, fair weather.

    To compare or conflate the two issues, as the left is committed to doing, is just another method of denigrating his presidency; nothing more.
