Trump Defends America’s ‘Heroes And Heroines’
“We’re getting tired of the woke generals that we have right?” referencing Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley who said he wanted to understand the “white rage” he believed was behind the January 6 Capitol riot.
The former president then went after woke activists for wanting to take down America’s “heroes,” especially during the protests in the Summer of 2020.
“They want to get rid of our great heroes and heroines,” Trump said. “They want to get rid of our history. Our culture.”
“We’re not going to do it,” he insisted.
Trump also went after the women’s U.S. Olympic soccer team, some members of which knelt during the American national anthem.
No, I’m not watching the Trump rally, but everything woke does turn to shit, doesn’t it?

Trump Praises Women U.S. Olympic Soccer Players Who Stood Up During National Anthem
“Women’s soccer was supposed to easily win, but they went woke,” Trump said.
Trump did cheer the women who did stand for the flag.
“I love those women that stood up and they saluted our flag,” the former president said.
Focusing on U.S. Soccer player Megan Rapinoe specifically as the “one with the purple hair,” Trump was dismissive.
“You can have her,” Trump said.
Trump is certainly not one to mince words! We applaud him for speaking out against the “woke” left in this way.
