Former football legend Herschel Walker, who once played for a team owned by Donald Trump, lined up and worked out for the president at the 2020 Republican National Convention on Monday, and knocked down allegations that our Commander-in-Chief is a racist.
“It hurt my soul to hear the terrible names that people call Donald,” Walker said. “I take that as a personal insult, that people would think I’ve had a 37-year friendship with a racist.
“Growing up in the Deep South, I’ve seen racism up close. I know what it is. And it isn’t Donald Trump.”
Walker talked about Trump’s opposition to athletes who protest social issues by kneeling when the National Anthem is being played before a game.
“Just because someone loves and respects the flag, our National Anthem and our country, it doesn’t mean they don’t care about social justice,” he said. “He shows how much he cares about social justice in the black community through his actions. And his actions speak louder than stickers and slogans on a jersey.”
Walker captured that sentiment beautifully. Don’t just listen to what a politician says they are going to do. Watch what they do. That’s how you measure a person, by whether or not they came through with the promises they made. President Trump makes it a top priority to keep his promises, and if blocked, he never gives up trying. Never. That’s why millions love him, because he’s not like any other politician. Me says what he means, and he means what he says, and that’s quite refreshing.
Walker was a Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Georgia. He started ,his professional career playing football with the short-lived USFL’s New Jersey Generals, a team that was owned in 1984 and 1985 by Donald Trump. Incidentally, he also played for the Philadelphia Eagles, and will always have a special place in my football heart.
“He learned about the history of the team, the players, the coaches, every detail,” said Walker. “I watched him treat janitors, security guards and waiters the same way you would treat a VIP.”
Leftist haters never heard about this phenomenon with Trump. He really is a blue-dog-billionaire. He has always, always kept it real with the working class, because he loves them, and after you meet the man, you come away knowing he does. Those working class folks became the forgotten men and women of America after years of back room deals by swamp rat politicians selling them out for big donations at the working class’ expense. Trump ended that and brought the jobs back when every so-called expert said it couldn’t be done.
Walker also point out that Donald Trump can also be fierce when he’s fighting to reach a goal, and people try to block him.
“He leaves nothing on the field,” the retired running back said. “Some people don’t like his style, the way he knocks down obstacles that get in the way of his goals.
“People on the opposing team didn’t like when I ran over them either. But that’s how you get the job done.”
