Liberty News: President Trump has set his sights on getting America’s kids off the couch and onto the field. He hopes to reverse a lower participation trend, which prompted the White House to host a fun and field day on the South Lawn. The President’s Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition, now co-chaired by Trump’s good pal, Patriot’s coach Bill Belichick, is focusing efforts on assisting economically disadvantaged children gain access to youth sports, both individual and team.
An executive order was penned and signed earlier in the year to refocus the Council’s energies away from Obama’s ‘fitness only’ regime and seek out effective ways to engage more youth in a variety of athletic disciplines.
And as usual, Trump pulled out all the stops for the day with a few heavy hitters, actor and body-builder Lou Ferrigno, beach volleyball gold medalist Misty May-Treanor, professional golfer Natalie Gulbis, former football star Herschel Walker, and a couple of former New York Yankees – Johnny Damon and Mariano Rivera.
The grounds were tricked out with stations for volleyball, track and field, baseball, flag football, soccer and of course, golf. MORE
