Trump gets sporting boos and cheers in United States south

But many critics went further, arguing that video of the president singing showed that he mouthed the wrong words to the song, mocking him for the alleged gaffe after he had spent months lambasting football players who kneel in protest of racism and police brutality.

President Trump is the oldest person to be elected president in US history, and his memory has often been called into question. The POTUS could be seen standing on the field, singing the anthem with his hand over his heart. But as country artist Zac Brown broke into the song's first few bars, every set of eyes in the building remained fixed on President Donald Trump, who took in the game's first half from a luxury box. President Trump's mental state has already been called into question, and the bad lip sync has been identified by some as proof that the president's mental health is deteriorating. He has publicly blasted several players a year ago for not respecting the anthem or the flag.

Donald Trump Jr., the son of President Donald Trump, on Tuesday praised his father for showing "some respect" for the national anthem and the American flag.

Barack Obama has done both, and said in 2016 that "respecting and honouring our flag and our anthem is part of what binds us together as a nation".

The code adds that military personnel and veterans should salute throughout the anthem.

He was escorted onto the field for the "Star-Spangled Banner". The general fear is that he is developing Dementia and Twitter users in America have not stopped coming for him for seemingly forgetting the words to the American national anthem. "He's fired. He's fired!'" Trump said at the time.

Mr Trump has also strongly criticised National Football League stars kneeling during the anthem in protest against perceived racial injustice. In October 2017, he had also asked Vice President Mike Pence to leave an Indianapolis Colts game early after the players knelt during the National Anthem.
