Legendary college football coach Bobby Bowden has revealed the motivation which he credits helping him beat the Coronavirus at the age of 91: the desire to be able to cast his vote for President Trump in this November’s election.
President Trump then responded to Brown’s incredible testimony in a series of tweets, as The Daily Wire reports:
President Donald Trump responded on Thursday morning to a statement from legendary college football coach Bobby Bowden on why Bowden, 91, fought so hard to win his battle against the coronavirus after being hospitalized earlier this month.
Bowden released a statement yesterday saying that one of the reasons he “really wanted to win” his battle against the coronavirus, which originated in China, was that he “wanted to be around to vote for President Trump.”
Trump quoted parts of Bowden’s statement in a series of tweets, adding that the former Florida State coach was one of the best to ever coach the game.
“The GREAT Bobby Bowden, one of the best coaches EVER in College Football, on his full recovery from Covid-19 ‘….America is the greatest country this side of heaven. I’ve had a chance to get a lot of wins in my life, but I really wanted to win this one because I wanted to be around to vote for President Trump,’” Trump tweeted. “Over 300 wins and 2 National Championships. Thank you to Florida State for giving us Bobby Bowden!”
