Former President Donald Trump isn’t a fan of American Olympic athletes who protest.
Protesting during sporting events has been in the news for a long time, and it was brought back to the forefront thanks to Gwen Berry and our women’s national soccer team. Prior to the USWNT’s humiliating loss to Sweden, players on both teams took a knee while on the field “in solidarity with the equality movement and against the oppression of people of color,” according to CNN.
Well, the former president thinks athletes who protest while representing America are “disgraceful.”
“I think they’re disgraceful. I think woke is really a loser’s philosophy, and you take a look at what happened with the women’s soccer team. They lost to Sweden. Woke means lose, and that’s exactly what’s happening,” Trump said during a recent interview with Benny Johnson, who used to work with me back in 2018.
