This morning Trump praised NASCAR for not taking part in the National Anthem protests:
So proud of NASCAR and its supporters and fans. They won't put up with disrespecting our Country or our Flag - they said it loud and clear!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2017
But the sentiment wasn’t returned by Dale Earnhardt Jr, who tweeted this quote from John F. Kennedy a few minutes later:
All Americans R granted rights 2 peaceful protests— Dale Earnhardt Jr. (@DaleJr) September 25, 2017
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable-JFK
Clearly Dale Jr. doesn’t appreciate Trump’s earlier comments suggesting NFL players shouldn’t have the right to protest during the National Anthem.
As the Washington Examiner points out, “Kennedy made the remarks March 13, 1962, while addressing the Alliance for Progress.”
