Bill Belichick's rejection of Trump's Presidential Medal of Freedom honor receives mostly praise

Bill Belichick received mostly praise on social media for his decision to reject 트럼프 대통령’s offer to award him the Presidential Medal of Freedom – the highest civilian honor in the U.S.

그만큼 뉴 잉글랜드 패트리어츠 was praised on Twitter for breaking with his longtime friend. Former Sen. Jeff Flake, longtime Boston sports columnist Bob Ryan and actress Mia Farrow were among those in Belichick’s corner.

He cited the riot at the U.S. Capitol as the reason why he was going to decline the offer.

“최근에, 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. Subsequently, the tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award,” 그 성명에서 말했다.


Above all, I am an American citizen with great reverence for our nation’s values, freedom and democracy. I know I also represent my family and the New England Patriots team. One of the most rewarding things in my professional career took place in 2020 언제, through the great leadership within our team, conversations about social justice, equality and human rights moved to the forefront and became actions. Continuing those efforts while remaining true to the people, team and county I love outweigh the benefits of any individual award.

Politico, citing a White House official, reported that the 뉴 잉글랜드 패트리어츠 coach would be receiving the award.

The president recently re-appointed Belichick to the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness and Nutrition last month. It is the coach’s second term on the council.

Belichick is the son of a World War II veteran and grew up in Annapolis, Md. Steve Belichick coached college football for 34 years at Navy.
