Friday afternoon, President Trump announced he will be awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to legendary NFL coach Lou Holtz.
The announcement comes after Lou Holtz’s RNC speech where he called Joe Biden “Catholic in name only.”
Trump explained “Even great political people recommending Lou for the Presidential Medal of Freedom. We’ve analyzed it very closely. We’ve look at all of those recommendations. We’ve looked at Lou’s life and his career, what he’s done for charity. The football is obvious, he was a great coach, but what he’s done beyond even coaching.”

Speaking at the RNC, legendary football coach Lou Holtz said “The Biden/Harris ticket is the most radically pro abortion campaign in history.”
“They and other politicians are Catholics in name only.” he added.
Praising President Trump, Holtz said “When a leader tells you something, you’ve got to be able to count on it. That’s President Trump. He says what he means, he means what he says, and he’s done what he said he would do at every single turn.”
