Does President Trump Not Even Know The Words To The National Anthem?

Trump and the National Anthem Here We Go Again

Mr Trump was on the sidelines of an NCAA National Championship game between Georgia and Alabama on Monday (US time) when he joined a country music group and gospel choir to lead a rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner.

"We want our flag respected", he said, according to the Washington Post.

Social media commented that it appeared the president doesn't know the words to the song - which is especially peculiar because of his repeated stance that the country's flag and anthem must be respected at football games.

While Zac Brown's team didn't end up taking the title, the moment was more than enough for the singer, who later tweeted "Thank you for the honor to sing our National Anthem".

He certainly didn't sing all of them.

Another user named, X pointed out how Trump has been at loggerheads with the National Football League (NFL) about not respecting the anthem but has failed to mumble the anthem on his own. The president can clearly be seen mouthing "bright stars" and he finishes with a flourish, smiling and singing "the land of the free and the home of the brave".

He was escorted onto the field for the "Star-Spangled Banner".

President Trump is the oldest person to be elected president in USA history, and his memory has often been called into question.

He has also repeatedly tweeted about the issue. The photo touched a nerve for politicizing military widows.

The act, to protest systemic racism and police brutality, was condemned by Trump, who said the National Football League should suspend the player. The majority of black voters disagree with Trump's condemnation of the National Football League protests.

Last year, the president sparked a new wave of national anthem protests after he called the former San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who started the movement against police brutality, a "son of a b****."

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