NFL players and team owners seem to be really offended by what President Trump said about their refusal to stand up during the playing of the national anthem. Every single media outlet has been reporting about this protest controversy.
Now, the latest reports reveal how White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders responded when asked about her thoughts on the whole situation, reports IJR. Sanders explained:
“This isn’t about the president being against anyone. This is about the president and millions of Americans being for something. Being for honoring our flag, honoring our national anthem, and honoring the men and women who fought to defend it.”
Even though she answered it once, reporters kept asking her if she thought Trump’s remarks were “appropriate.” What she than said shut up reporters for good:
“I think it is always appropriate for the president of the United States to defend our flag, to defend the national anthem, and to defend the men and women who fought and died to defend it.”
When pressed about explaining once again, she said this about where the White House stands on this matter:
“It is always appropriate for the president to defend our flag, to defend the national anthem. Hold on, I’m not finished. It’s always appropriate for the president of this country to promote our flag, to promote our national anthem, and ask people to respect it.”
We are left to see where this goes from here. The only thing we are certain about in this moment is that this is far from over.
