A farmer in North Dakota just scored major points with President Trump. This farmer has made headlines before for his agriculture art, but this time it’s on a subject near and dear for all Americans. Gene Hanson of Edgeley, North Dakota placed a message in his crops for the National Football League: “We stand for the National Anthem.” I love it! He put the message into his bean crops. It’s in response to “Kneel Gate” and the players who take a knee during the National Anthem.
President Trump shared the Fox News article showcasing the farmer’s efforts on his Facebook page yesterday. “Thank you Gene Hanson — a GREAT American (and farmer) who is standing up for our flag, our anthem, and our country!” Trump wrote. Hanson spoke with Fox News yesterday and made it clear he supports President Trump’s position on players standing for the National Anthem. “I go with Trump on this one,” Hanson said. “If you want to protest, that’s not the place to do it.”
