Why Trump’s Culture War with the NFL is Politically Brilliant

Many pundits were outraged over President Trump getting himself involved in the protest against NFL players that choose not to stand for the National Anthem. Conservative and liberal pundits alike viewed Trump’s remarks on the NFL as unnecessary and politically reckless.

In reality, President Trump’s strategy in taking on the NFL was nothing short of brilliant.

President Trump constantly has his thumb on the pulse of the America’s social sentiment. He understands what makes people overjoyed and what makes them irate. In the case of NFL players who refuse to stand for the National Anthem, President Trump understands that outrage over this is bipartisan.

Trump’s criticism of players who do not stand for the National Anthem was not an appeal to his base, but rather an appeal to those in the center, and those who would be considered moderate democrats.

President Trump presented the American people and the media with a dichotomy. He effectively made people choose between supporting him, or supporting 20-something athletes who make millions of dollars to throw a ball but feel it unnecessary to stand for the National Anthem.

There can be debate over how President Trump polls against a wide variety of people. Trump is more popular than some people and less popular than others. When polled against un-patriotic NFL players, Trump wins every time.

In essence, Trump’s strategy in taking on the NFL was to make moderate democrats and independents reconsider their opinion of his and choose between Trump and the far-left NFL kneelers, and in doing this voter will pick Trump every time.

The far-left media will not see the reason in why Trump’s NFL strategy makes perfect sense, and neither will most people, but that’s exactly why it will work so well.
