Donald Trump Vows Never To View U.S Soccer (See Reason)

Recently, Donald Trump has spoken out on U.S. Soccer, revealing that he will not be viewing their games anymore due to their decision not to force players to stand for the national anthem.

You could recall that America has been filled with protests after the death of George Floyd with footballers around the world adding their voices to the Black Lives Matter movement.

U.S. Soccer however have taken a surprisingly strong stance and announced earlier this week that players would no longer be forced to stand for the national anthem.

Trump has now slammed that decision, however, vowing he won’t be watching the game again until the move is reversed.

“I won’t be watching much anymore! And it looks like the NFL is heading in that direction also, but not with me watching!” Trump said on Twitter.

The response of Donald Trump on social media came as response of giving his support behind the stance of Florida Republican congressman Matt Gaetz, who himself tweeted:

“I’d rather the US not have a soccer team than have a soccer team that won’t stand for the National Anthem. You shouldn’t get to play under our flag as our national team if you won’t stand when it is raised.”
