Bill Belichick weier die presidensiële medalje van vryheid van Trump

Belichick het die “tragic events of last weekas leading to his decision. Pro-Trump rioters rampaged in the US Capitol last Wednesday. Five people died as a result of the chaos, including a US Capitol Police officer. House Democrats want to impeach Trump, accusing him of “aanhitsing van opstand.”
“Onlangs, I was offered the opportunity to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which I was flattered by out of respect for what the honor represents and admiration for prior recipients,” Belichick said in a statement. “Subsequently, the tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award. Bowenal, I am an American citizen with great reverence for our nation’s values, freedom and democracy.
A White House official told CNN the White House was made aware of the decision.
