Trump Praises Patriot Neil Armstrong: 'There Was No Kneeling' on the Moon
President says 'there was no games' when astronaut planted US flag on the moon
Using his trademark whit to slam his critics, President Trump praised American patriot Neil Armstrong, saying "there was no kneeling" when he planted the US flag on the face of the moon.
Trump made the comments during an Ohio rally on Friday when he proudly reminded the crowd that the astronaut grew up there.
“He’s the man that planted the flag on the face of the moon,” Trump said.
“There was no kneeling, there was no nothing, there was no games, boom.”
“Boom,” the president repeated as he imitated the action of planting the flag into the ground.

According to Breitbart, Trump highlighted Armstrong during a campaign rally in Ohio on Friday night as part of a list of American heroes that were born in the state.
He also pointed out a possible relative of Armstrong in the audience, but it was unclear whom he was singling out.
The president also praised Ohio native General Ulysses S. Grant, who was a great general despite being an alcoholic.
“He had a serious problem, a serious drinking problem, but man was he a good general,” Trump said.

Trump said that Lincoln “almost developed a phobia” because of how successful Confederate General Robert E. Lee was, winning “battle after battle after battle” during the Civil War.
“There was one problem, they didn’t know how to win,” Trump said about the Northern forces under Lincoln.
After choosing Grant, Trump recalled, Lincoln was successful.
“He went in and knocked the hell out of everyone,” he said about Grant.
“Man was he a great general, and he is finally being recognized as being a great general,” Trump continued.
Trump also praised the state for being the native state of the Wright brothers.
