Trump’s Patriotism Blitz Continues On Twitter; NFL Week 3 Ratings Strong, Contrary To Trump’s Earlier Claim

President Trump continues to tweet about patriotism and the U.S. anthem several days after his rant on Friday during an Alabama rally about firing NFL football players who refuse to stand up for the U.S. national anthem and followed by a series of daily tweets about the divisive topic.

On Tuesday evening, President Trump retweeted an old video of Jamaican Olympic champion sprinter Usain Bolt  displaying patriotism towards the U.S. National Anthem during an interview with a sports reporter following a track victory.

President Trump tweeted, “Even Usain Bolt from Jamaica, one of the greatest runners and athletes of all time, showed RESPECT for our National Anthem!”

Earlier on Tuesday, President Trump tweeted that the NFL should set a rule that you can’t kneel during our National Anthem.

“The NFL has all sorts of rules and regulations. The only way out for them is to set a rule that you can’t kneel during our National Anthem!” Trump tweeted.

President Trump claimed on Twitter over the week-end that NFL ratings are way down and suggested without any proof that many Americans stayed away from the NFL because they love the country.

President Trump tweeted, “…NFL attendance and ratings are WAY DOWN. Boring games yes, but many stay away because they love our country. League should back U.S.”

Contrary to Trump’s twitter claim about Americans avoiding the NFL over patriotism, USA Today reported on Tuesday that television ratings during Week 3 was up 3 percent across all games from 2016, including an increase of 63 percent with Monday Night Football.

Dallas Cowboy owner Jerry Jones, a Trump supporter, decided to join his football players in taking a knee during the National Anthem during the Cowboys game on Monday night against the Arizona Cardinals.
