Ben Carson just leaked a bombshell about President Donald Trump. The White House didn’t expect this to happen, but it did on a national radio program. Americans across the country were listening and now the audio has been shared online.
During a broadcast of the Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, Hewitt asked Carson about Trump’s position on athletes kneeling in protest during the National Anthem and whether Trump would move away from his viewpoint that it is always a bad thing. Carson’s response was surprising.
“Well, I don’t think he has manifested as much animosity in that region lately, said Carson. “And I think we just continue to work him. He’ll get there.” Even if you disagree with Caron here, you have to admire his kind, soft-spoken nature — he rarely has a critical word to say.
Of course, during the same interview, Carson also challenged the athletes who choose to kneel during the anthem to “make sure people understand why they’re kneeling.” Carson said that “a lot of people are under the impression that they’re kneeling before they don’t respect” the anthem or flag.
According to Carson, however, this isn’t always the case. “I think most of them are kneeling because, you know, they want to protest brutality in the police forces,” he said. Even so, he also noted that he’s “not sure if it needs to continue” since a spotlight has been directly placed on the subject.
Many Americans aren’t necessarily against protesting. They just don’t believe that during the anthem — which is supposed to bring us all together — is the right time to do it. This is a perfectly reasonable position as well. One thing is for certain: It is time for us to unite as simply Americans.
