Obama, Bush, Clinton Stand for National Anthem at Presidents Cup
Three Former Presidents Stand For National Anthem At Presidents Cup (The Daily Caller)
Former presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama all stood and put their hands over their hearts during the national anthem at the open of The Presidents Cup golf tournament Thursday.
The moment was the first public appearance for the group of former presidents after NFL players ignited controversy by kneeling or locking arms during the anthem. President Trump called on NFL owners to fire players who would not stand for the anthem.
Kneeling before the anthem started last season with former-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who claimed to be protesting police brutality.
