The president has been battling to stop disrespect of the American flag and national anthem.
When President Trump mentioned respecting the American flag at the Value Voters Summit on Friday, the crowd rose to their feet to show their appreciation for the president’s fight for the flag and national anthem.
“We defend our constitution. We protect religious liberty. We treasure our freedom. We are proud of our history. We support the rule of law and the incredible men and women of law enforcement,” Trump told the crowd.
The president then praised the work of men and women in military uniform.
“We respect our great American flag!” he then exclaimed to the crowd.
The attendees at the summit then responded with a standing ovation.
Trump has picked a fight with NFL players who have decided to protest during the national anthem at professional football games. As a result of the pressure that the president put on the league, team owners will consider a rule requiring players to respect the flag and national anthem.
