President Donald Trump has made a disturbing statement concerning American football, which is one of the country’s most followed sports branding it “dangerous.”
According to a si. com report citing CBS News, Trump, who would not hide his dislike for the sport said before Super Bowl LIII that he would rather have his 12-year-old son, Barron, play football than American football.
“It’s very, it’s very tough question, “ Trump stressed.
“It’s a very good question. If he wanted to? Yes. Would I steer him that way? No, I wouldn’t. “
“I just don’t like the reports that I see coming out having to do with football-I mean, it’s a dangerous sport and I think it’s- I- it’s- really tough, I thought the equipment would get better, and it has,” he said.
“The helmets have gotten far better but it hasn’t solved the problem. So, you know I- I hate to say it because I love to watch football.”
The president also took out to applaud football’s progress in the country, ” including me, thought soccer would probably never make it in this country, but it really is moving forward rapidly ,” Trump added.
