A source close to the White House says the President plans to continue to pound the NFL National Anthem issue through the midterms.
Another person familiar with his thinking says Trump has touted this issue before as something that could help him in the midterms, and wants to keep it in the bloodstream.
Sen. Cory Gardner was asked about whether this issue would help the GOP pick up senate seats in November — and he didn’t say no.
“The American people know that this is an issue is something that they’ve seen in the NFL. They’ve seen on TV. It’s been in the news. Stand up for the National Anthem, that’s what I would do.”
