Trump says he wishes Drew Brees hadn’t apologized – and Brees responds to him

El Presidente tried to give Drew Brees some backup yesterday:

Brees double down in his response, which he posted on Instagram:

Here’s what he said:

To @realdonaldtrump
Through my ongoing conversations with friends, teammates, and leaders in the black community, I realize this is not an issue about the American flag. It has never been. We can no longer use the flag to turn people away or distract them from the real issues that face our black communities.
We did this back in 2017, and regretfully I brought it back with my comments this week. We must stop talking about the flag and shift our attention to the real issues of systemic racial injustice, economic oppression, police brutality, and judicial & prison reform.
We are at a critical juncture in our nation’s history! If not now, then when?

We as a white community need to listen and learn from the pain and suffering of our black communities. We must acknowledge the problems, identify the solutions, and then put this into action. The black community cannot do it alone. This will require all of us.

This poor guy seems to have been caught in the middle of all this. He’s such a great guy and has done so much for New Orleans, it’s sad that people need to tear him down over this.

That being said, I can see what is coming. The NFL is embracing this movement because of what they see in the media and social media. This next season is probably gonna be crap because it’s gonna be full politicized…. get ready.
