The president took on the Black Lives Matter organization, exposing its Marxist anti-American roots.
President Trump tore into the origin of Black Lives Matter back in 2015 where they were seen aggressively demonstrating against the police officers in St.Paul, Minnesota.
“Black Lives Matter, where did it start?” posed Trump, “Marching down streets screaming, ‘Pigs in a blanket, Fry ’em like bacon’ — they were talking about policemen, police men and women. ‘Pigs in a blanket, Fry ’em like bacon.’”
“So, all of a sudden it’s taken on this air of great respectability,” Trump questioned BLM. “Well, how does it start there? It’s a Marxist group that is not looking for good things for our country.”
In 2015, BLM founder Patrisse Cullors – a vocal anti-trumper who has said her goal is to remove President Trump from the White House – admitted to being a ”trained Marxist”
“We actually do have an ideological frame,” Cullors said “myself and Alicia, in particular, are trained organizers.”
“We are trained Marxists,” she added. “We are super versed on, sort of, ideological theories.”
BLM also had called for an end to the “Western-prescribed nuclear family structure,” along with completely defunding the police to redistribute funds into their hands.
President Trump also unloaded on professional athletes who insisted on disrespecting the American national anthem and said that he could no longer remain silent, adding that he was so passionate about it that if him speaking up against such issues drives him to lose the 2020 presidential election, he’s “okay” with it.
“I think it’s disgraceful,” Trump said of the “new norm” of professional athletes kneeling for the “Star-Spangled Banner.” “I was pushing them to get open, then I see everybody kneeling during the anthem. It’s not acceptable to me.”
“When I see them kneeling, I just turn off the game,” the president said. “I have no interest in the game; and let me tell you this, there are plenty of other people out there, too.”
Trump added that he’s hearing that the ratings for the NBA and MLB are “way down” over the left-wing activism and vowed to continue to speak out about the apparent disrespect to our country and flag.
“We gotta stand up for our flag,” Trump said. “We have to stand up for our country, we have to stand up for our anthem. And a lot of people agree with me.”
“Hey, if I’m wrong,” he said, “I’m gonna lose an election, okay? And that’s oaky with me. But I will always stand for our country and our flag.”
On Tuesday, Trump posted a tweet critical of the anthem kneeling, writing, “People are not happy that players are not standing for our National Anthem!”
And days earlier, he retweeted a post by Students for Trump praising a lone NBA anthem stander.
President Trump added that he has placed his focus on improving the lives of the black community throughout his presidency, “And, again, nobody has done more for the black community by far … than I have,” he said, excluding former president and emancipator Abraham Lincoln.
