Donald Trump says the NFL, and America, have become soft and weak
The NFL was the latest organization to draw the ire of presidential candidate Donald Trump, who took aim at the current state of football in one of his campaign rallies. Trump bemoaned that big hits and violent head-on tackles are penalized with flags today, whereas before they were encouraged.
Trump summarized his thoughts by saying “football has become soft like our country has become soft.” He also added “It’s become weak and you know what? It’s going to affect the NFL. I don’t even watch it as much anymore. It’s going to affect the NFL. I don’t watch it.” Lastly, although Trump maintained the NFL was soft, boring and unwatchable, he reiterated his love for Tom Brady, whom he called a ‘great guy’.
