🇺🇸 US Sportsman Kneels👉 During National Anthem:  "President Who Spreads Hate"

A member of the US fencing team knelt on the podium during the national anthem and medal ceremony Friday at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru, later saying on Twitter: "We must call for change."

Race Imboden, an Olympic medalist and part of the men's foil team that won gold at the Pan American Games, wrote on Twitter that he demonstrated because of "racism, gun control, mistreatment of immigrants, and a president who spreads hate."

"I chose to [sacrifice] my moment today at the top of the podium to call attention to issues that I believe need to be addressed," he tweeted. "I encourage others to please use your platforms for empowerment and change."

Imboden's demonstration happened amid a larger national discussion on issues that include gun control, which came in the wake of recent shooting rampages in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Amid that discussion has continued, some have noted President Donald Trump's tweets and remarks about immigrants. The suspect in the El Paso shooting, which left 22 people dead, told authorities that he was targeting "Mexicans," according to police.
