President Donald Trump’s ongoing feud with NFL players and owners over the kneeling protests during the American National Anthem took an unexpected twist. Trump tried to use Jamaican athlete, Usain Bolt’s respect for a medal ceremony as an argument against the players protesting police brutality and inequality. However, Twitter reacted in the usual witty fashion.




The main issue with Trump using Usain Bolt in his argument is that 1. Usain Bolt is Jamaican, not American. 2. Usain Bolt is honoring the medal ceremony for an athlete not honoring any specific national anthem or country.

Jamaicans on twitter responded by telling Trump to leave Bolt and Jamaica out of his ‘politricks‘. In short, leave Jamaica out of your propaganda, Trump!
