Belichick turns down Trump's Presidential Medal of Freedom

Bill Belichick turns down Presidential Medal of Freedom citing Capitol insurrection as reason

Trump's planned Medal of Freedom for Pats' Belichick stirs outcry in Boston

I'm pretty sure Schill would have no problem showing up in Washington to collect a Presidential Medal of Freedom in the middle of impreachment proceedings, eight days after Trump incited violence against the United States of America.

Although he describes himself as apolitical, Belichick has waded into politics on occasion.

Although Mr Trump said the letter offered "best wishes for great results" on election day and "the opportunity to make America great again", Belichick said it was merely to support a friend.

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said on Monday night (Tuesday NZT) that he will not receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, saying "remaining true to the people, team and country I love outweigh the benefits of any individual award".

It was reported Sunday that President Donald Trump meant to bestow the highest civilian honor in the United States to Belichick on Thursday.

In 2016, Trump read a glowing letter from Belichick while on the campaign trail, in which the coach praised his courage and leadership. Politico notes that of the 25 recipients of the Medal of Freedom in Trump's term, 15 have been connected to sports, including; Tiger Woods, Lou Holtz, and Mariano Rivera. He has often held grand presentation ceremonies for the award, but recent ceremonies have taken place in private. Trump has generally avoided the press since his election loss.

Belichick, 68, just concluded his 46th season in the National Football League and 21st as Patriots coach.

Gerry Callahan, a conservative former sports columnist at the Boston Herald, said on his podcast on Monday that it was likely Belichick would not accept the award.

"This president has made a mockery of the Presidential Medal of Freedom", McGovern said.

"I'll be very disappointed to be honest with you".

Belichick, ufite umuhigo w'ibikombe bitandatu bya Super Bowls, afatwa nk'umwe mu batoza bafite ibigwi bikomeye mu mateka ya NFL. "This president is not fit to be in office so anything that he would bestow on anybody to me is meaningless and to accept it is disgraceful". Belichick was to be honoured on Thursday.
