Patriots coach Bill Belichick spurns Trump’s Medal of Freedom

“New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will not take part in a White House ceremony honoring him with the presidential Medal of Freedom,” The Hill reported on Monday, January 11, 2021.

Belichick, a longtime friend of Trump, “cited … last week’s violent riots at the U.S. Capitol as a reason … to decline the award.” Belichick said in a statement, “Above all, I am an American citizen with great respect for our nation’s values, freedom and democracy.”

Evidently he feels his old friend has betrayed those values. Also, he’s got his own reputation to think about. Read story here.
