White House Senior advisor Kellyanne Conway claimed that President Donald Trump is “winning” against black NFL players who have been peacefully protesting against police brutality of African-Americans by kneeling during the National Anthem.
During an interview with Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade, Conway repeated Trump’s false claim that the players were protesting against fallen veterans.
Conway also lectured black football players tp volunteer in their communities, which many already do:
If you actually want to take a stand the way some of these NFL players are doing, why is it just the national anthem? Are you civically active? Are you educating younger people? Are you organizing and volunteering in your own communities…
He’s made that very clear. You can’t disrespect the veterans and the blood that’s been shed so you and I have the freedom today to talk in front of the White House in a Democratic nation. That’s what that’s about. And I think the president’s on the winning side of that issue.
