NFL Great Jim Brown visited Trump at the White House on Thursday and stopped to talk to reporters afterwards. He said Trump treated him and Kanye West beautifully. He also repeated his belief in standing for the national anthem and respecting the flag.
The Bleacher Report has the story:
Jim Brown: Donald Trump Treated Kanye West and Me ‘Beautifully’ During Meeting
“We had the opportunity to meet with the President of the United States which everybody doesn’t have that privilege,” Brown told reporters. “With me, at 82 years old, the only thing I could talk about was how to help other people. So, it was very positive.”
“This is the President of the United States,” Brown said later. “He allowed me to be invited to his territory, he treated us beautifully, and he shared some thoughts, and he will be open to talking when I get back to him. That’s the best he could do for me.”…
When asked whether he broached the anthem issue with Trump, Brown sided with the president on the issue.
“I don’t think we should take knees in protest, instead of standing up for our flag,” Brown said. “I think we work out our problems as a family … I am an American, that flag is my flag, and I want to represent it that way.”
