NFL Hall of Famer Brett Favre says he’s voting for Pres. Trump
October 30, 2020
“My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd Amnd, hard working tax paying citizens, police & military,” Favre wrote. “In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect. For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump. #Vote“
The former Green Bay Packers quarterback has recently criticized athletes for making political statements during games and he says it’s contributed greatly to the lower TV ratings for both the NBA and NFL.
“People don’t want to see all of the politics,” Trump told conservative host Eric Bolling in an interview last week. “They’ve got enough politics with me and with everybody else. And they don’t want to see it with football or sports on Sunday or whenever they happen to be watching. I think it’s had a huge impact on sports, a huge negative impact on sports. And I think that football ought to get back to football and basketball to basketball. And let politics remain separate.”
