Trump’s Attempt At Using Usain Bolt To Slam NFL Players Spectacularly Backfires

United States of America (HuffPost)-Trump’s Attempt At Using Usain Bolt To Slam NFL Players Spectacularly Backfires: President Donald Trump tried to use Jamaican athlete Usain Bolt to criticize National Football League players who protest during the national anthem on Tuesday night.

But it didn’t go down well.




Trump tweeted this five-year-old video of the now retired track star cutting away from a live television interview during the London 2012 Summer Olympics so that he could stand for the U.S. national anthem.

The president outraged many at a rally in Huntsville, Alabama, on Friday with his thinly veiled attack on former San Francisco 49er Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players who have taken a knee in protest against police brutality and racial injustice during the national anthem before games.

Bolt himself has yet to comment on Trump’s tweet.

But Team Jamaica, a forum for the Caribbean island’s Olympic sports’ enthusiasts, immediately came to the runner’s defense and admonished the president to leave him “out of your politricks.”
