  • Does Donald Trump Really Not Know the Words to the National Anthem?

This comment is believed to be relating to the ongoing criticism Trump gave professional football players who kneel during the anthem to protest racial injustice, as well as the NFL itself for allowing it.

He added to applause: "We want our national anthem respected, too".

The president had previously also courted controversy over his singing of the national anthem in May past year.

"For those grousing about Trump seemingly not knowing the words to the national anthem: 1) He's hard of hearing and 2) down on the field, the sound bounces around a lot and it's hard to decipher the music", wrote one user.

The president was reportedly greeted with a mixture of cheers and boos while taking the field.

Trump's anthem fumble left the "tweet-happy" president quiet for the time being. Televised footage of the match shows that the president while mouthing the lyrics, appears to sing some words wrong and pausing at some lines, though Trump could not be heard.

"There's plenty of space for people to express their views and to protest, but we love our flag and we love our anthem, and we want to keep it that way". He renewed the attack earlier Monday on Twitter.

The mixed reception could be a worry for the White House, coming deep in Trump country in a contest watched by fans from two nominally Republican states.

Trump has singled out ex-NFL quarterback Kaepernick for launching the trend previous year, and called other pro ballers SOBs who should be fired for participating in the silent protests.
