  • Late Night Hosts Mock Trump for Botching National Anthem

On Monday, Donald Trump attended a college football game in Atlanta where he took to the field for the national anthem.

The national anthem became a burning issue of the USA politics in September after Trump's severe criticism of NFL players kneeling during the song as a way to protest against violence towards black Americans.

"The president mouthed what appeared to be some of the words of the National Anthem and didn't mouth others".

The president was reportedly greeted with a mixture of cheers and boos while taking the field. Another person tweeted, "Trump was mouthing some words during parts of the national anthem, but it was unclear what he was saying".

The president left the game shortly before halftime.

"We want our flag respected", he said earlier in the day during a speech in Nashville, Tennessee, "and we want our national anthem respected also".

Tweeters also debated whether Trump's fumble might be a sign of forgetfulness - and in turn, a sign that the 71-year-old might be developing dementia. "Just show some respect for your country", Don Jr. wrote.

The White House said Pence will address the need to combat terrorism and help persecuted religious minorities. Before Trump's announcement, Abbas was scheduled to meet with Pence in the biblical town of Bethlehem.

The president, flanked by military members, stood near the 40-yard line with his hand on his heart as the anthem played.

The White House has vehemently denied these claims, and the president took to Twitter to personally defend his mental health in a string of now infamous tweets.

Trump sparked controversy last September after he referred to Colin Kaepernick and other protesting athletes as "sons of bitches" during a rally in Alabama.
