President Trump gave a strong defense of the American flag and the national anthem during a campaign rally in Indiana Thursday.
“We proudly stand, because we love that sound, we stand for our national anthem at all times!”
“Never believe that your Second Amendment is not under siege. We believe that a strong nation must have strong borders. We have pride in our history and respect for our great American flag,” Trump said.
The auditorium then broke out into cheers and a chant of “USA! USA!”
Trump walked away from the podium for a few moments, then stepped back up and dropped a line that made the entire room howl.
Trump said, “And we put our large, beautiful hands on our hearts for the Pledge of Allegiance!”
“And we proudly stand, all the time we stand, because we love that sound, we stand for our national anthem at all times,” the president said.
